Blackened Chicken and Caesar Salad Dressing

These recipes were inspired after the girls had a Blackened chicken wrap at a restaurant one day. They came home and found these on the Internet. We eat this as a salad with fresh grated Parmesan cheese, or as a wrap.

Blackened Chicken

3 teaspoons paprika
1 teaspoon dried oregano
1 teaspoon cayenne pepper (this may be reduced or eliminated completely, if desired)
2 teaspoon dried thyme
2 teaspoon onion powder
2 teaspoon garlic powder
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon freshly ground pepper
8 teaspoons butter, melted ***
4 chicken breasts (about 8 oz each)

Mix dry ingredients. Can run through a coffee grinder to pulverize them. I don't do this.

Pound chicken between two pieces of wax paper to make them thin.....I use chicken tenders, so I don't do this.

Heat a large cast iron skillet. Put 1 T butter in to melt. Cook the breasts three minutes (use a kitchen timer or the microwave timer, but do time this step carefully). Spoon 1 teaspoon of butter over each breast; turn the breast over and spoon on one more teaspoon of butter and cook another timed three minutes.

***We don't put the butter on top--saves calories. We serve this as a salad with Caesar Dressing.
