Ingredients

  • 1.5 pound chicken breast
  • 1 teaspoon paprika
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper
  • 1/2 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1/2 teaspoon chili powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon cumin
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground thyme
  • 1/4 teaspoon white pepper
  • 1 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon oregano
  • 1/2 teaspoon marjoram
  • 1/2 teaspoon seasoned salt
  • 1 tbsp olive oil

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line a 9x13 or similar sized baking pan with aluminum foil
  • Slice chicken breasts in half, or use mat mallet to pound chicken, so that each breast is about 1/2" thick, You will likely use 2 breasts and end up with 4 pieces.
  • In a small bowl, stir together all 13 spices.
  • Evenly all sides of the chicken with the spice mixture. You will not likely use all of the spice mixture.
  • Heat 1 tbsp of olive oil in cast iron skillet over medium-high heat on stove top. Place chicken in skillet. Cook for about 1 minute on each side. Then remove chicken from skillet and place in prepared baking pan.
  • Bake until chicken is cooked through and pink no longer remains. About 7 minutes depending on the thickness of the breasts. I would recommend checking after 5 minutes, especially if the breasts are a bit thinner than 1/2".

Notes

My family finds this recipe to be mild with the spice level. However, if you are very spice sensitive, start with 1/8 teaspoon cayenne and 1/8 teaspoon white pepper.
