Blackened Chicken

"I mix these spices together and keep in my spice rack. I make the blackened chicken and use for sandwiches, with lettuce, tomato and mayonnaise, these are so yummy. Use as little or as much spice depending on how hot you like it."

    The recipe is really great but the cooking directions for this are extremely dangerous! Putting "fat on the fire" can and will cause a kitchen fire, especially after getting a pan pipping hot. Please, anyone who makes this - be careful!

    great recipe for the spice blend... but wow, one CUP of butter?! seriously?! (SERIOUSLY?!) I substituted this with a generous drizzle of olive oil. I put the chicken in a bowl, added the olive oil and the juice of half a lime, tossed things around, then added the spice blend (mixed separately- added 1 tsp sugar to help it caramelize). I rubbed it into the chicken, covered it, and marinated for ~1 hour. ... then I threw them onto the barbecue. turned out beautifully with a lot less fat than the initial recipe would have had.

    Yum!!! This was really good... I did make some changes though. I put the chicken and spices in a plastic baggy, shook it around, and stuck it in the skillet with some EVOO. I browned the chicken in the skillet, then finished off the cooking in the oven. Eliminated the smokiness and it was easy to take out of the oven and serve!

    I made this with fettucini alfredo and it was AWESOME! A little spicy for some, but I like it that way.
