Blackened Chicken Recipe

"These days I’m kind of obsessed with savory (as you might already know if you’ve seen the last few recipes); so, bear with me as we try another spicy masterpiece called “blackened chicken recipe”. This recipe has become my favorite very quickly; mostly because my mother does most of the actual cooking; I’m just there, helping her out and that is the best thing in the world. Honestly, at first sight, I thought it was just grilled chicken, just a “little” burned. But then I saw the ingredients (‘cause why not? And I wanted to know how burned chicken breasts made their way in our cookbook). And I was quite surprised (not “tooo” surprised; I mean I did know its name) to find that it was a genuine recipe and the chicken was indeed blackened on purpose."
