Blackened Herbed Chicken

I left Charles to fend for himself this evening and he created some delicious chicken.  A mix of spice and herbs for a tasty blackened style chicken.  Traditionally blackened dishes are cooked in a dry skillet; but we like to use some oil to keep the smoke to a minimum and create a better sear to the meat; plus I think the flavor is so much better this way.

  • boneless skinless chicken breast
  • 1/4 cup oil
  • 1 Tbs paprika
  • 1/2 tsp garlic powder
  • 1/2 tsp thyme
  • 1/4 tsp cayenne
  • 1/4 tsp marjoram
  • 1/4 tsp dill
  • salt and pepper

Combine spices and season the chicken breasts well; Charles used 3 pieces of chicken for this amount of seasoning.  Heat oil over medium to medium high heat in large skillet.  Cook chicken for 5 – 7 minutes each side or until cooked through.
