I found this recipe at Fashionably Foodie, and it sounded d’lish.  While I took our youngest to Hobby Lobby, -s prepared this amazing dinner.  It was so tasty!  We will definitely make this one again

Ingredients:

Blackened Chicken or Salmon

  • 4 TBSP paprika
  • 1/4 tsp cayenne
  • 1 tsp. salt
  • 2 tsp. onion powder
  • 2 tsp .garlic powder
  • 1 tsp. oregano
  • 1/2 tsp. thyme
  • 1/2 tsp. pepper
  • 1/4 tsp. cumin
  • 1/4 c. butter
  • 4 chicken breasts or salmon fillets

Directions:

  1. Mix dry spices on a plate.
  2. In a skillet, melt butter and oil over medium-high heat. Pour off 1 Tablespoon of butter into a shallow pan. Turn on your oven vent and crank the heat to medium-high to high. If using chicken, pound chicken in between two sheets of plastic wrap, then pat dry with paper towels. Dip each fillet or breast lightly into melted butter and dip into the dry ingredients, patting the spices on by hand. Cook fish/chicken in skillet, 3-4 minutes per side, or until done, careful when turning. Fish/Chicken will look charred black and you may get smoke- hence the name!

Creamy Garlic Alfredo Sauce
