Blackened Chicken with Red Pepper Sriracha Mayonnaise Episode 22

Ok, this is my pet peeve recipe.  If you visit a chain, live in the North or just in general, most blackened anything, is just a meat with their version of spices.  The first time I moved here I sent it back.  I was thinking what is this!  Blackened chicken is cooked in really hot cast iron skillet, with butter and a ton of spice.  Don’t do this inside unless you have a really nice exhaust fan.

The red pepper Sriracha is trendy but I have been eating it for 30 years.  Don’t buy it because this version is better and easy to make.  Even if you don’t want blackened chicken give the mayonnaise a try.

  5. cover chicken with cajun seasoning(I mean a heavy coat)
  6. set chicken in pan and cook for around 4 minutes per side (depends on thickness)
