Why I Love This Recipe

Flavorful way to spice up chicken


Ingredients You'll Need

1 pound boneless chicken breasts (halves or cutlets)*
2 tablespoons Cajun seasoning (see the homemade blend, below)
1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
1/2 teaspoon onion powder
1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
1/2 teaspoon salt (only if the Cajun seasoning is unsalted)
2 tablespoons vegetable oil


Directions

1.If the chicken breasts are large, slice them horizontally to form thin cutlets. For faster cooking, place the chicken breasts or cutlets between sheets of plastic wrap and pound to flatten to a uniform thickness.


2.Combine the seasonings and oil to form a paste, adding more oil if needed.


3.Rub the seasoning mixture all over the chicken breasts.


4.Place the seasoned chicken breasts in a food storage bag and refrigerate for at least 1 hour.


5.Grill or broil the chicken for about 5 to 7 minutes on each side, depending on thickness.


6.Chicken is done when juices run clear when pricked with a fork.


7.Serve with your favorite sides and enjoy!
