Skillet Blackened Chicken
Updated: Jun 24
This blackened chicken was so juicy and delicious. It was super easy to make too! Everyone really enjoyed this tonight for dinner! All you need is an oven-proof skillet!
Here's what you need:
4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts, pounded to 1/2 inch thickness
2 t ground cumin
2 t smoked paprika
1/2 t salt
1/2 t black pepper
1/8 t -1/4 t ground red pepper (To your taste)
2 t olive oil
Preheat oven to 400. Mix all the spices together and rub on one side of each piece of chicken. Heat the oil in a cast iron skillet over medium-high heat, or any oven-proof skillet. Place the chicken in the skillet with the seasoned side down. Cook for 3 minutes, then turn the chicken to the seasoned side facing up. Place the skillet in the oven. Bake at 400 for 6 minutes or until the chicken is done. Dig in!!
