You can use any meat for blackened chicken, but chicken is the most popular. The process is simple and depends on your taste. Before starting, heat vegetable oil to deep-frying temperature. Next, add a half-teaspoon of blackened seasoning mix to the chicken. Allow the chicken to sit for a few minutes before removing it from a plate. Afterward, cover the chicken with foil or a plate lined with a paper towel to prevent drying out.
If you’re using the seasoning, mix the seasoning with two tablespoons of vegetable oil in a microwave-safe bowl.
