My family loves this Recipe. I have always tried new and interesting things on my family and they let me know what to keep and what to pitch . This one is a keeper and we fix it at least twice a month. I have even made it with fish, pork and beef.

How to Make Blackened Chicken

Step-by-Step

  1. In a small bowl, combine the paprika, 1 teaspoon sugar, 1 teaspoon salt, garlic powder, thyme, lemon-pepper, cayenne and 1/2 to 1 teaspoon pepper; sprinkle over both sides of chicken. Set aside.
  2. In another bowl, combine the mayonnaise, water, vinegar and remaining sugar, salt and pepper; cover and refrigerate 1 cup for serving. Save remaining sauce for basting.
  3. Grill chicken, covered, over indirect medium heat for 4-6 minutes on each side or until a thermometer reads 170*, basting frequently with remaining sauce. Serve with reserved sauce.
  4. Note: I always double the spices/ingredients. I like the taste better.
