Blackened Chicken

Blackened Chicken

"This spicy standout from Stephanie Kenney packs a one-two punch of flavor. The grilled chicken is basted with a peppery white sauce. 'Plus there's plenty of extra sauce left over for dipping,' writes the Falkville, Alabama reader."

This recipe was good, but didn't have the kick that I was looking for with blackened chicken. The sauce cooked on the chicken was goopy and made for a pretty gross looking presentation. The sa...
