Spice up dinnertime with Blackened Chicken! Boneless, skinless chicken breasts get a flavor makeover with homemade Blackened Seasoning and are cooked to tender, juicy perfection!
If you already have store-bought or Homemade Blackening Seasoning, feel free to sub that in place of the spices below. Use 2-3 tablespoons, depending on how salty the mix is.
Preheat the oven to 350°F and have ready a rimmed baking sheet.*
Add all of the spices to a small bowl and stir to combine. Set aside until ready to use.
Pat the chicken breasts dry with a paper towel and drizzle with 1 tablespoon of oil. Sprinkle all of the Blackened Seasoning over the chicken breasts and rub all over to adhere. Don't worry if all of the seasoning doesn't stick to the breasts.
Add the remaining 2 tablespoons of oil to a large skillet over medium-high heat and allow it to come to temperature. Sear each chicken breast for 2 1/2 to 3 minutes on the first side, then flip, and sear 1 to 2 minutes more. Do not over-crowd the pan and sear in batches if needed.
Transfer the chicken to the baking dish* and bake for 20 minutes, or until the chicken is cooked through. Allow to rest about 5 minutes, serve, and enjoy!
If you have an oven-safe pan large enough to house all four chicken breasts without overcrowding, feel free to use that instead of a baking dish in the oven.
