How do you make Blackened Chicken?

First mix all your spices together in a bowl or shake them up in a sandwich bag. Then brush your chicken with a little vegetable oil or canola oil. Alternatively you can spray it with cooking spray. Now sprinkle both sides of each chicken breast with the spices. Use your hands to evenly spread the seasonings over the chicken.

Now heat a little bit of canola or vegetable oil in a nonstick skillet over medium to medium high heat until it is smoking. Cook until the chicken is golden brown (almost black) on both sides and cooked through. Remove from the skillet and cover with a loose aluminum foil tent and let rest for 10 minutes.
