These are spicy but good. I don't like "blackened" stuff but I like these.

These are great! Very easy to make. I think the cast iron pan is critical to properly blacken the chicken. The only substitution made was that I used lime juice instead of lemon juice, and it worked quite well. My son suggested cutting the breasts into bite sized pieces and then serving as an appetizer with a sour cream dip. Not a bad idea either. Great recipe. Thanks for sharing it.
