Blackened chicken is the result of quick cooking over very high heat. Blackened chicken is typically seasoned with Cajun spices to make the outer surface of the chicken a spicy char. It then pairs well with a cooling or refreshing topping, such as citrus or fruit salsa. Chicken is a healthy dish since it is a lean piece of meat with low calories and fat. Blackened chicken can be served with rice and vegetables for an overall low calorie meal. It can also be sliced and placed atop salad greens.
