Cajun Blackened Chicken Recipe

Ingredients and Equipment:

Chicken parts
Cajun spice mix (recipe follows)
Large cast-iron skillet

Cajun Spice mix:

5 tsp paprika
1 tsp ground dried oregano
1 tsp ground dried thyme
1 tsp cayenne powder (more to taste)
1/2 tsp finely ground black pepper
1/2 tsp finely ground white pepper
1/2 tsp garlic powder (optional)

Mix spices very well, and store in an air-tight container. Or, use a commercial Cajun spice mix.

Skin parts, and remove excess fat. Rinse and pat mostly dry. Coat with spice paste. Arrange in hot skillet. Cook 5 minutes on each side, or until spice paste darkens up. Lower heat and continue cooking until
done (juice should run clear, not pink, if a thick piece is pierced deeply with a knife tip), or finish in a 350 degree oven.
