    Ok, so I admit I didn't follow your directions and used my George Foreman grill. It still produced a great flavor and helped to keep the moisture in. I will make this again.

    Great tasting chicken. We so liked this combination of spices that it has seen reruns! I made it according to directions using a heavy 'hand cast' pan. We loved it, all we needed was a salad to make for a perfect meal. Needing for most part to cook low fat I have also 'baked' it in the oven, while not quite blackened chicken it was absolutely delicious too! Thank you for sharing.

    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.
