Black and Bleu Chicken Recipe - Low Carb & Healthy

Low carb recipe for Black and Bleu Chicken which belongs to the Poultry recipe category.

Ingredients Needed

  1. 3 boneless, skinless chicken breasts
  2. Cajun Seasoning, purchased or homemade
  3. 3 tablespoons (42 g) butter
  4. pound (115 g) blue cheese, crumbled

Cooking Instructions

Start a large, heavy-bottomed skillet heating over medium-high heat.

In the meanwhile, one at a time, place each chicken breast in a heavy resealable plastic bag.

Use a meat tenderizing hammer, a regular hammer, or whatever blunt object comes to hand (I use a 3-pound dumbbell!) to pound each breast until it's about inch (6 mm) thick all over?this should take about 30 seconds per breast.

Sprinkle both sides of each pounded breast with the Cajun seasoning.

Melt the butter in the skillet and add the chicken breasts.

Saute for 4 to 5 minutes per side or until cooked through.

When they're just about done, sprinkle the crumbled blue cheese over the chicken breasts, dividing it evenly between all three.

Cover the skillet for a minute more to let the cheese melt and serve.
