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
1/4 teaspoon onion powder
4 skinless, boneless chicken breast halves
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Mix together paprika, salt, cayenne, cumin, thyme, pepper and onion powder. Coat side of chicken with mixture. Heat oil in skillet until very hot. Add chicken seasoned side down, and cook for 1 minute. Turn, and cook 1 minute on other side, this is the "blackening" step. Place chicken on a lightly greased cookie sheet. Bake at 350 degrees F for 10 minutes or until chicken is no longer pink inside and juices are clear.
You can also use this rub mixture on pork, turkey, and other meats. It's especially great when grilling.
