This chicken works great for tacos, fajitas, taco salad, burritos, or eaten plain with your bare hands. Here's how to cook it to perfection:
Southwest Rubbed Chicken1 T. taco seasoning*
1/2 tsp. chili powder
1/4 tsp. cayenne pepper
1/2 tsp. dried parsley
1 T. brown sugar
1/2 tsp. black pepper
4 boneless, skinless chicken breast halves
nonfat cooking spray
*For spicier rub, use 1 T. chili powder and 1/4 tsp. cumin in place of taco seasoning.
Preheat broiler on high. Spray broiling pan with cooking spray. Combine spices. Rinse chicken. Pat dry with a paper towel. Rub spices all over chicken breasts. Broil for 6 minutes on each side. (Large chicken breasts may take 8 minutes on each side.)
One and a half chicken breasts are usually enough for our family, so I freeze the rest of the cooked chicken for the following Tuesday.
