Recipe

There are a few spice blends that I always have on hand for quick and easy seasoning. One of these is Cajun spices, which I often add to chicken or fish when I need to season something in a hurry. However many Cajun spice blends include added sugar and sodium, so lately I have been making my own sugar free version. I prefer to use real garlic as well but you could add some garlic powder instead if you want to skip sauteing the garlic and dirtying up another pan.

Directions

  1. Preheat the oven to 375 degrees. Arrange the chicken breasts in a prepared glass baking dish. Season with salt and pepper (adjust if your spices contain salt and pepper.)
  2. Heat the oil in a small sauté pan over medium heat. Add the garlic and saute for 2-3 minutes until fragrant and tender. Remove from heat and add to a small bowl. Alternatively you can microwave the garlic and oil for 2 minutes to soften the garlic.
  3. Stir in the spices you are using. If you like things spicy, consider adding some cayenne pepper. Pour over chicken.
  4. Bake for 30-35 minutes until chicken is just cooked through.
  5. Turn up the oven to broil. Serve with fresh squeezed lemon.
