Cajun Chicken Recipe

Cajun Chicken Recipe

4 servings

Package cajun seasoning can be purchased, but we particularly like our homemade blend - try it with beef and pork too!

 

Ingredients:

4 boneless, skinless chicken breast halves

Butter-flavored vegetable cooking spray

Cajun seasoning

 

For Cajun seasoning:

2 teaspoons paprika

1 teaspoon each: onion powder, garlic powder

1/2 teaspoon each: dried thyme and oregano leaves, cayenne and black pepper

1/4 teaspoon salt

Method:

Spray both sides chicken breast with cooking spray, sprinkle with cajun seasoning. Grill chicken over medium-hot coals, or broil 5 inches from heat source, until chicken is cooked and juices run clear, about 5 to 8 minutes on each side.

 

Mix all cajun seasoning ingredients, store in airtight container.
