Ingredients

  • 6 boneless skinless chicken cutlets (or 3 breasts halved)
  • 3 tablespoons olive oil
  • 2 tablespoons blackening seasoning
  • Juice of 1/2 lemon
  • 1/4 roasted peanuts, crushed

Directions

Wash and pat dry the room-temperature chicken breasts. Combine the olive oil, seasoning, and lemon juice in a bowl. Coat and evenly cover the chicken with the mixture. Turn the broiler on high, making sure the top rack is on the highest level.

On a foil-lined baking sheet, lay down the chicken cutlets. Place on the top rack, as close to the heat source as possible, and cook for 4-5 minutes on each side, flipping halfway, until the chicken is cooked through. 

Plate the chicken over greens or just on a plate and sprinkle with the crushed peanuts. 

Blackened Chicken Shopping Tip

Buy whole chickens and ask the butcher to quarter them for you. You will save an average of $5 per pound, or more.

Blackened Chicken Cooking Tip

Legs take longer than breasts to cook. For more consistent results, mark the chicken on the grill and then finish cooking them in an oven.
