Blackened Chicken

Blackened Chicken

Blackened Chicken Taco

I'm always looking for a quick and easy recipe that I can stretch into several meals.  This blackened chicken recipe happens to be a very good one.  I used a pound of chicken tenders. It made quite a lot.  I used them to make street tacos - see above as well as put them in a salad.   It's awesome with pasta as well.

INGREDIENTS
  • 1 tbsp chili powder
  • 1 tbsp paprika 
  • 1 tbsp cumin
  • 1/4 tsp cayenne pepper
  • 1 tsp light brown sugar
  • 1 tsp ground pepper
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1 lb skinless chicken tenders 
  • 1 tbsp avocado oil (or olive oil)
  • 1 5oz can evaporated milk
DIRECTIONS 
  • In a small bowl, combine chili powder, paprika, cumin, cayenne pepper, brown sugar, pepper, and salt.
  • Put in a large resealable bag along with the chicken tenders.  Shake to coat.
  • In a large nonstick pan, heat avocado oil over medium heat.  Saute the chicken 5-7 minutes or until done.  Remove the chicken from the pan.
  • In the same pan, add evaporated milk scraping the bits from the bottom of the pan. Cook one minute or until bubbly.  Pour over chicken.
