- 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
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.
