Cajun Chicken Marinade

Here’s an easy recipe for a wonderful dry rub marinade for the chicken cut of your preference. I used chicken breasts, but this would make for some great wings too. I got this recipe from week 3 of the meal plans that the Eat Well Challenge participants are using.

Here’s what you’ll need:
2 chicken breasts (I made 3, so I added a little more of each seasoning)
1 tablespoon paprika
1 teaspoon cayenne
2 teaspoons garlic powder
1 teaspoon onion powder
2 teaspoons dried thyme
1 teaspoon dried oregano
1 teaspoon sea salt
1⁄2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper

How it’s done:
Combine all the spices in a bowl big enough to contain all the chicken. Score the chicken breasts multiple times, then coat it thoroughly in the rub. Cover the bowl and marinate the chicken in the fridge for at least two hours. 
Preheat the oven to 375°. Warm a skillet over medium heat and add enough coconut oil to coat the pan. Sear the chicken for two minutes per side, or until both sides have browned. Then put the chicken on a baking sheet in the over for 10-12 minutes (flipping halfway through). Enjoy with your favorite side!
