A shake of paprika, a dash of red pepper and dried herbs--it doesn't take much to give simple chicken kickin' Cajun flavor.

1/2
teaspoon salt
1/4
teaspoon garlic powder
1/4
teaspoon dried thyme leaves
1/4
teaspoon dried oregano leaves
1/4
teaspoon pepper
1/4
teaspoon paprika
1/4
teaspoon ground red pepper (cayenne)
1
tablespoon olive oil
4
boneless skinless chicken breast halves

Steps

  • 1 Heat gas or charcoal grill. In small bowl, combine all ingredients except oil and chicken breast halves; mix well. Brush oil over all sides of chicken. Sprinkle with seasoning mixture.
  • 2 When grill is heated, place chicken on gas grill over medium heat or on charcoal grill 4 to 6 inches from medium coals. Cook 10 to 12 minutes or until chicken is fork-tender and juices run clear, turning once.

Expert Tips

Season the chicken breasts and place in a resealable food storage plastic bag. Tuck into a cooler and take to grill at a picnic.

For a down-South supper, serve this chicken with rice with chopped parsley, buttered sweet potatoes and crusty French rolls.

To broil chicken, place on broiler pan. Broil 4 to 6 inches from heat using grilling times as a guide, turning once.
