Blackened Chicken





Using the same seasoning for the Blackened Tilapia Tacos I decided to try it out on chicken last night.  It was absolutely delicious and really gave the chicken a fantastic flavour with a bit of a kick to it.

Ingredients

1 tsp Paprika
1/2 tsp each of salt, pepper, cayenne pepper, onion powder and cumin
 3-4 thin sliced chicken breasts
1 tbsp olive oil

Preparation

Heat olive oil over a medium heat.
Add spices together and stir to combine.
Rub spice mixture over both sides of chicken breast



Cook chicken for approximately 7 minutes each side (keep an eye on it so it doesn't burn, cooking time will vary depending on how thick your chicken breasts are)


If using thicker chicken breasts and you find your chicken is cooking too quickly on the outside, place in a pre-heated oven to continue cooking the middle or lower heat and cover your pan.
