*Bronzed Chicken Breasts

Chef Paul Prudhomme invented the technique of blackened fishB a method not suitable for indoor home cooking since it produces so much smoke. His bronzing methods are just as delicious


  • 1 stick butter melted
  • 8 boneless skinless, chicken breast halves, well chilled
  • about 1 tablespoon plus 2 teaspoons Cajun Magic Poultry Magic in all


  • Heat heavy griddle or large, heavy aluminum illet to 350 F, about 7 minutes over medium heat (2 inch flame) on gas stove, about 23 minutes over medium to medium-low heat on an electric stove. Or use an electric skillet.
  • Dip chicken in melted butter and sprinkle generously with about 2 teaspoon Poultry Magic. Lay chicken on hot griddle or skillet surface. Cook chicken until underside is bronze in color, 4 to 5 minutes. (Watch and you=ll see white line coming up sides as chicken cooks; when line is about one-half the thickness, chicken is ready to be turned.) Turn chicken and cook until done, about 4 to 5 minutes more. Serve immediately


Variation: Bronzed Trout- use fresh trout fillets or other firm-fleshed fish, about 2 inch thick at thickest part. Use Cajun Magic Seafood Magic
for seasoning.
