Blackened Chicken

  • 1 teaspoon paprika
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon cayenne pepper
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried thyme
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground white pepper
  • 1/4 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 4 skinless, boneless chicken breast halves
  1. Mix together the paprika, salt, cayenne, cumin, thyme, white pepper, garlic powder, and onion powder. Oil the chicken breasts with cooking spray on both sides, then coat the chicken breasts evenly with the spice mixture.
  2. Heat ~1 Tbs of vegetable oil in a skillet on medium-high heat.
  3. Add chicken breasts, and cook 3-5 minutes until golden brown, flip and cook until the internal temperature is 180°, or approximately another 3-5 minutes.
  • If chicken is browning too quickly on the outside (ie you will have burnt chicken on the outside and raw on the inside) cook the second side on medium for a longer period of time.
  • Blackened chicken is great over pasta with cream sauce.
Yields 4 servings.
