For traditional “blackened” recipes, you can purchase blackened seasoning and then fry it in a cast iron skillet. I decided to make my own blackened seasoning and then grill it for a healthier version. Even if it’s in the winter, you can use a grill pan to get perfectly grilled meat!
In a small bowl, mix together all ingredients for blackened seasoning. Store in an air-tight container in a cool, dry place.
Preheat grill to medium-high heat.
Rub both sides of chicken breast with blackened seasoning and salt. Cook chicken on pre-heated grill sprayed with non-stick cooking spray. Cook each side for 6-8 minutes or until internal temperature reaches 165 degrees.
Mix together ingredients for pineapple salsa. Remove chicken from grill and serve topped with pineapple salsa.
