Recipe: Blackened Chicken

This recipe is a quick and easy way to add variety to chicken dishes.


1.5-2lbs boneless skinless chicken breasts

¼ teaspoon salt

1 teaspoon paprika

½ teaspoon cayenne 

½ teaspoon ground cumin

½ teaspoon dried thyme (or ½ tablespoon fresh)

¼ teaspoon onion powder

¼ teaspoon white pepper

1 tablespoon olive oil


Preheat your oven to 350˚. Mix your spices and rub chicken breasts with the mixture to coat. You can spice just one side but it is much tastier with both. Heat oil in a skillet over high heat until very hot when you hold your hand slightly above the surface (5 mins). Turn on vent fan. You may also want to open a window. If you are doing it right there WILL be smoke. Place chicken in the hot pan and cook for one minute. Turn and cook one minute on the other side. Place on a lightly greased cookie sheet and bake in your heated oven for 5-10 minutes until no longer pink and juices run clear. Variation: if you like spice, add 1/8 teaspoon dried habanero to your mix or more to taste. Serve alone, over salad, in a wrap with hummus, spinach, and peppers, or however you like.

    I love blackened chicken salad, pasta, oodles, or still overfed between two pieces of cooking oil lettuce as a little crab cram.
