Blackened Chicken Breasts √

Blackened Chicken Breasts
Tried & True - You can adjust how much spice mix you use according to the members of you family for varied tastes. It's quite spicy. Very good!

1 1/2 pounds boneless, skinless chicken breasts
1 tablespoon vegetable oil
margarine or butter

Spice Mix
2 teaspoons paprika
1 teaspoon onion powder
1 teaspoon garlic powder
1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper
1/2 teaspoon white pepper
1/2 teaspoon black pepper
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon dried thyme leaves
1/2 teaspoon dried oregano leaves

Coat each piece of chicken with about 1 tablespoon spice mix. The mixture is hot and spicy, so adjust amount for taste of each person. Using a pastry brush, baste each piece of chicken with melted margarine or butter. Grill chicken, basting with butter or margarine after turning once. Grill about 10 minutes or until no longer pink in the middle. Or cook chicken in a large, nonstick skillet in hot oil over medium heat. Cook, turning chicken once, until it's done, about 10 minutes. Makes 6 servings.
