This easy chicken recipe is made with Cajun spices, chicken breasts, and a little vegetable oil. Plan to make this about 1 hour before you begin to cook.


  • 2 tablespoons Cajun seasoning
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 2 tablespoons vegetable oil
  • 4 boneless chicken breast halves


Combine the seasonings and oil to form a paste, adding more oil if needed. Rub all over the chicken breasts; place in a food storage bag and refrigerate for at least 1 hour. Grill or broil the chicken for about 5 to 7 minutes on each side, depending on thickness. Chicken is done when juices run clear when pricked with a fork.
Serves 4.

A fun way to spice up your poultry, Member nettynette

I used the marinade on Turkey Culets instead. Served with Cajun Rice and the Black Bean & Mango Salsa for a fantastic Sunday dinner. The family loved it! I made my own cajun seasoning (which allows me to control the salt). Definitely a winner. Thanks.
