    breezermom's Note:

    This is a really quick recipe to marinating and very little cook time. Pounding the chicken breasts help reduce the cooking time. Feel free to substitute boneless chicken thighs or even boneless pork chops! Best on a charcoal grill. From Southern Living.

      It is pretty far removed from outdoor cooking weather here in London at the moment. So, instead I did these under the broiler and that worked without any problem. I am not good at extra spicy things. So, the addition of the sugar was good for taking that bite out of the spice for me. Yet, it kept enough in to keep my spice mad husband happy. Made for 1-2-3 tag.

      This was a great recipe. I used boneless pork chops instead of chicken. I grilled them. Next time I will use the chicken. Made for Newest Zaar tag.

      Not quite sure how I've missed this recipe, breezermom, but that has now been remedied! Perfect for on the fly, this was fabulous! I love cajun/blackened chicken and am always on the lookout for new recipes. Due to inclement weather, this was prepared in my oven @ 450? for about 20 minutes, which was perfect. The smoke alarm only went off once! LOL Thanks for sharing this tasty dish, breezermom!
