Ayo. Lucy is stepping down for one blog post to let me test my feet in the water. Whenever Lucy and I cook meat, I'm put in charge. Everything I know about cooking meat, I learned from my dad. We don't have a grill, which is sad when it comes to cooking meat, but we make do. Lucy showed me this recipe and told me what to do, and 12 minutes later we had what might have been the best chicken I have ever eaten.
The recipe called to flatten a chicken breast to about 1/2" thick, but I'm lazy so I cut the breast in half. And our hammer has a bunch of metal shards on it from hammering nails, not chicken.
In a bowl, melt a tablespoon of butter. In a separate bowl, combine the following:
1 teaspoon garlic powder
1 teaspoon paprika
1/2 teaspoon onion powder
1/2 teaspoon ground cumin
1/2 teaspoon chili powder
1/2 teaspoon pepper
1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper
Coat each of the cut chicken breasts in the butter, and cover in the seasonings. Throw in salt if you feel necessary, but honestly you probably won't need it. This rub has a real kick to it.
Once both sides of the chicken breasts are coated in the rub, put each breast in a pan heated on medium with a bit of oil on the oven.
Cook for about 5-6 minutes on each side, until each side is golden brown. Call your mother and apologize since she thinks she made the best chicken you have ever eaten. Awkward.
Enjoy. Damnit, enjoy!
