Blackened Hot Chicken Breasts

ingredients

serves 6
6 skinless boneless chicken breasts
75 g (3 oz) 6 tbsp butter or margarine
5 ml (1 tsp) garlic powder
10 ml (2 tsp) onion powder
5 ml (1 tsp) cayenne pepper
10 ml (2 tsp) sweet paprika
7.5 ml (l 1/2 tsp) salt
1.5 ml (1/2 tsp) white pepper
5 ml (1 tsp) ground black pepper
1.5 ml (1/4 tsp) ground cumin
5 ml (1 tsp) dried thyme

method

1. Slice each chicken breast piece in half horizontally, making two pieces of about the same thickness. Flatten slightly with the heel of your hand.

2. Melt the butter or margarine in a small saucepan.

3. Combine all the remaining ingredients in a shallow bowl and stir to blend well. Brush the chicken pieces on both sides with melted butter or margarine, then sprinkle evenly with the seasoning mixture.

4. Heat a large heavy frying pan over a high heat until a drop of water sprinkled on the surface sizzles. This will take 5 – 8 minutes.

5. Drizzle 5 ml (1 tsp) melted butter on each chicken piece. Place them in the pan in an even layer, two or three at a time. Cook for 2 - 3 minutes until the underside begins to blacken. Turn and cook the other side for another 2 - 3 minutes. Serve hot.

I liked this dish, the blend of thyme and black ground pepper really did the trick. The paprika amount is maybe a little to much but the amount i had with the chicken breast (7.5ml) was succulent
