Our Cajun Blackened Chicken recipe has it all! It’s easy to make, quick to make, healthy and, most importantly DELICIOUS! Watch our short recipe video below and you’ll see for yourself. We love the flavor crust that is quickly seared on the outside of the chicken and then we keep the chicken from drying out by finishing it in the oven. We kept a Cajun flavor to this recipe by serving the chicken with a batch of rice with fresh veggies and a side salad. You get bonus points if you serve it with Dirty Rice!

- 1 245 Chicken Breast (cut into cutlets (see video for demonstration))
- 2 424 Old Bay Blackened Seasoning
- .5 512 Cajun Seasoning (use 1 tsp for spicier flavor)
- 2 454 Vegetable Oil
Cut Chicken Breast into cutlets by placing the breast flat on a cutting board, then slicing it in half horizontally with one, careful cut.
Mix together the Old Bay Blackened Seasoning and Cajun Seasoning and then liberally season the chicken cutlets on all sides.
Add the vegetable oil to a large skillet and heat to medium high heat. Once the oil is hot, add the cutlets to the skillet and cook for two minutes per side. Remove from the skillet and place on a rack over a baking sheet. Place into an oven preheated to 400ºF and bake for 10 minutes.
Once the chicken is 165ºF, it is finished. Remove from oven and serve with your favorite Cajun inspired side dishes. Enjoy!
