This dish packs the most flavor with the least amount of effort and time. Blackening seasoning is found in Cajun cooking and is typically made from a mixture of chili powders, herbs, and spices, then rubbed on proteins (such as chicken and shrimp) to create a spicy and piquant flavor profile. This recipe calls for chili powder and cayenne as the spicy components. However, consider adding 1/8 teaspoon ghost pepper powder to your blend to up the spice even more! Serve this dish alongside red beans and rice, risotto, or on top of a green salad.
You could also easily switch to chicken breast, just up the cook time.
