Three Alarm Blackened Chicken

(Warning: you may want to open a window and shut off the smoke detector when preparing this dish). I received this recipe from a coworker, but I tripled the recipe to kick it up. I serve this with Alfredo and bow tie pasta. This is great dish for company and I guarantee if they love spice they will ask for it again.


  1. Cut chicken into bite sized pieces.
  2. Heat olive oil in a skillet.
  3. Combine cayenne pepper, cinnamon, Cajun seasoning, paprika an salt in a bowl.
  4. Rub spice mixture into chicken.
  5. Place chicken in skillet and cook until cooked thoroughly.
  6. Serve with Alfredo (recipe #4205) and your choice of noodles.
  7. Variation: If you are using this recipe for something besides pasta, pound chicken breasts to 3/4 inch and cook as directed.
  8. Variation: If you want to downgrade to One Alarm Blacken Chicken: use 1 teaspoon cayenne pepper, cinnamon, and Cajun seasoning and 1/2 teaspoon paprika and salt.

This was super spicy. I had to cut back on the spice. It did set off the smoke alarm. LOL Made for Fall PAC 2009. Thanks.
