Blackened chicken is great over pasta, on salads, in sandwiches or wraps, or just accompanied by some sides on your dinner plate!
  • 4-6 chicken breasts
  • 1 tsp. sea salt
  • 1/2 tsp. garlic powder
  • 1/4 tsp. black pepper
  • 1/2 tsp. white pepper
  • 1/2 tsp. onion powder
  • 1/2 tsp. ground cumin
  • 1/4 tsp. cayenne pepper (more or less depending on your preference)
  • 1/2 tsp. paprika
  1. Mix spices in a bowl and set aside.
  2. Clean chicken breasts and pat dry with paper towels.
  3. I like to butterfly them, so they cook faster, but leaving them whole is great!
  4. Place the chicken is a plastic bag and toss in the spices.
  5. Shake until they are well covered.
  6. Grill or bake at 375F until chicken is cooked through.
I just tried this recipe, using a George Forman Grill press and it turned out really well!
