Grilled Blackened Chicken Sandwich with Blue Cheese

Blackened  Chicken SandwichI had a real craving for something with a bit of bite a few days back. I was not looking for anything too spicy, but I did have a craving for something with a different heat. I decided I wanted a seasoned piece of meat that would be packed with a ton of flavor. I decided on a blackened seasoned chicken breast. Now sure, I make rubs all of the time for ribs, and smoked pork shoulders, but this latest batch of seasoning included that of a blackened mix.

Blackened anything is truly divine, and you can do whatever the heck you want with this spice mix. Use it on chicken, pork, fish, or burgers, it is a winner every time.

This simple simple throw together seasoning mix will not only last you for a few meals, but it will be a real crowd pleaser at your next barbecue.

Ingredients for the blackened seasoning:

  • 4 tsp salt
  • 2 tsp garlic powder
  • 2 tsp onion powder
  • 2 tsp paprika
  • 2 tsp dried thyme
  • 2 tsp black pepper
  • 1 tsp cayenne pepper
  • 1 tsp dried oregano
  • 1 tsp ground cumin
  • 2 tsp sugar

Ingredients for the sandwich:

  • 2 bread rolls
  • 1 tbsp butter
  • 3 tbsp blue cheese, crumbled (optional)
  • 2 boneless and skinless chicken breasts, butterflied

Combine all of your spice  ingredients into a bowl, mix well, and store into an airtight container, preferably in a dark place.

Preheat your grill to a medium-high heat.  Liberally season your chicken breasts with the blackened spices. Slice and butter your buns.

Grill the chicken breasts for about 6-8 minutes per side. The color of the chicken will change slightly due to the sugar and wonderful spices. When you are about finished grilling the chicken, throw on the buns to lightly toast.

Remove the buns from the grill and lay a breast on each bun. Top with the crumbled blue cheese, and dig in.

Thank you for visiting my website. Truly, I do appreciate it. My free time and stress reliever is cooking for my family, friends, and everyone in between. The recipes you find on this site are those that I have either created, been part of, or those that I simply enjoy and have made my own in some shape, form, or other. My focus has always been on comfort food, because at the end of a long work day, you want something comforting. I currently am the father of three children, and married to a wonderful wife of thirteen years. There is nothing fancy with these recipes, just simple, and I will admit, not so simple ingredients, and a simple kitchen corner I can call my own. I learned early on that cooking and bringing family together was very important. After all, this notion of being together at dinner time was instilled early on by my parents. There are many memories of being in the kitchen with my parents, watching them cook, or preparing meals, or those home cooked smells while waiting for dinner. My parents who worked full-time, always had home cooked meals during the week, with the exception of Friday nights where we would enjoy a Wisconsin fish fry, and often on late afternoons on Sunday, where we would order Ann's pizza. I tend to cook by making things up. As a home cook, I think you have to take chances, and add or subtract ingredients that make up a dish, and make them your own. Remember to taste, and taste often. If a dish has potential, try it again, and make it your own. You should also note that I do not count calories, or break down recipes into grams of anything. To me, that's a bit boring. My philosophy is that if the food is good, eat it, and eat it in moderation. Life is just too short not to enjoy good food.
