This is a spicy rub for chicken. You can obviously adjust the heat on this pretty easily, but below is just a standard mixture.
-4 thin sliced chicken breasts (these work best, but you can use regular breasts or tenderloins)
-1 tablespoon paprika
-1 tablespoon garlic powder
-1/2 tablespoon salt
-1/2 tablespoon onion powder
-1/2 tablespoon thyme
-1/2-1 tablespoon cayenne pepper (depending on your desired heat level)
-1/2 tablespoon black pepper
1. Mix the spices up on a paper plate. With some tongs, throw the chicken breasts onto the seasoning and flip over to coat each side. Shake off excess. Repeat with remaining breasts.
2. In a pan, heat a couple tablespoons of veggie oil over medium-high heat. Place the breasts in and cook for about 3-4 minutes per side (until chicken is no longer pink).
**Note: These can also be grilled, but I would use regular breasts then.
