Number of Servings: 4


    1 teaspoon paprika
    1/4 teaspoon salt
    1/2 teaspoon cayenne pepper
    1/2 teaspoon ground cumin
    1/2 teaspoon dried thyme
    1/4 teaspoon ground white pepper
    1 teaspoon onion powder
    32 oz skinless, boneless chicken breast halves


1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Lightly grease a baking sheet. Heat a cast iron skillet over high heat for 5 minutes until it is smoking hot.

2. Mix together the paprika, salt, cayenne, cumin, thyme, white pepper, and onion powder. Oil the chicken breasts with cooking spray on both sides, then coat the chicken breasts evenly with the spice mixture.

3. Place the chicken in the hot pan, and cook for 1 minute. Turn, and cook 1 minute on other side. Place the breasts on the prepared baking sheet.

4. Bake in the preheated oven until no longer pink in the center and the juices run clear, about 5 minutes.

  • I made this for dinner tonight and served with fettucine alfredo. It was quite good. I needed my stove free... so I just put all the spices in a baggie, added the chicken breast and tossed it around until it was coated. Then I grilled it. On my grill it took 20 minutes. Will make it again! - 9/9/10

  • This was awesome!! Cut back on the Cayenne pepper because my family is wimpy though. FYI -- 350 for 5 min, basically raw in the middle. I had to bake for 15. - 3/3/10
