Creole Blackened Chicken Recipe

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
