Blackened Chicken

Pin It
I usually order blackened chicken whenever I can, but now that I've found a recipe that trumps my go-to restaurant order, I'm going to start making it at home! You can put this chicken on a salad, in a sandwich or eat it plain. Or you can do what we did and serve it with a refreshing dollop of homemade guacamole. It's amazing however you have it. Enjoy!

Printable Recipe

  • 1 1⁄2 tbsp. paprika
  • 1 tsp. salt
  • 1 1⁄2 tsp. onion powder
  • 1 1⁄2 tsp. garlic powder
  • 1⁄2 tsp. pepper
  • 1⁄2 tsp. black pepper
  • 1⁄2 tsp. thyme
  • 1⁄2 tsp. oregano
  • Dash of cayenne pepper
  • 6 chicken breasts
  • 2 tbsp. butter, plus extra if necessary
Combine all seasonings in a shallow bowl.

Dredge each chicken breast in the spice mixture and shake off the excess.

Heat a large skillet to medium-high heat. Add butter and allow to melt.

Add chicken in an even layer and cook for 5-7 minutes per side, cooking in batches if necessary and adding more butter.

Remove from skillet and serve immediately.
