A shake of paprika, a dash of red pepper and dried herbs--it doesn't take much to give simple chicken kickin' Cajun flavor.
Updated Jan 24, 2011

Ingredients

  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon dried thyme leaves
  • 1/4 teaspoon dried oregano leaves
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 1/4 teaspoon paprika
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground red pepper (cayenne)
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 4 boneless skinless chicken breast halves

Steps

  • 1
    Heat gas or charcoal grill. In small bowl, combine all ingredients except oil and chicken breast halves; mix well. Brush oil over all sides of chicken. Sprinkle with seasoning mixture.

    When grill is heated, place chicken on gas grill over medium heat or on charcoal grill 4 to 6 inches from medium coals. Cook 10 to 12 minutes or until chicken is fork-tender and juices run clear, turning once.

Tips from the Betty Crocker Kitchens

  • tip 1
    Season the chicken breasts and place in a resealable food storage plastic bag. Tuck into a cooler and take to grill at a picnic.
  • tip 2
    For a down-South supper, serve this chicken with rice with chopped parsley, buttered sweet potatoes and crusty French rolls.
  • tip 3
    To broil chicken, place on broiler pan. Broil 4 to 6 inches from heat using grilling times as a guide, turning once.
