Creole Blackened Chicken Recipe

I love blackened chicken and was thrilled when I discovered I could cook it at home. I adjusted an old recipe, making it spicier to fit my taste. If you prefer milder flavors, simply omit or reduce the cayenne pepper.—Lauren Hardy, Jacksonville, FL

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Sep. 23, 2014

My husband loved it. It was definitely spicy and we used ranch dressing as a dip for it. Next time, I will use less cayenne pepper for sure.

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Feb. 6, 2014

This chicken was so flavorful and tender. I omitted the cayenne pepper-just for personal taste preferences- and the spice mixture was the perfect balance of warmth and freshness.

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Jan. 14, 2014

I needed a last minute main course and this fit the bill. We like spicy food and this is definitely spicy as listed. Chicken salad with the leftovers has already been requested.

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Nov. 23, 2013

This was spicy, but my husband and I liked it. Might tone the spice down next time for the kids. Leftovers were good on a salad.

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Jul. 19, 2013

Very spicy (yum)! Couldn't find Creole seasoning at the grocery store, so I used Cajun seasoning instead (probably the same?). I baked the chicken for 35 min. (rather than the 12-15 min. per recipe). It was a big hit. Looking forward to using the leftover to make a spicy chicken salad!
