Pounding the chicken breasts trims the time on the grill and ensures even cooking. Boneless chicken thighs and pork chops cook as quickly as chicken breasts and make great substitutes.

How to Make It

Step 1

Preheat grill to 350° to 400° (medium-high) heat. Place chicken between 2 sheets of heavy-duty plastic wrap; flatten to 1/2-inch thickness using a rolling pin or flat side of a meat mallet.

Step 2

Stir together brown sugar and Cajun seasoning; rub mixture over chicken. Grill chicken, covered with grill lid, 4 minutes on each side or until done. Season with salt to taste.

Step 3

Caramelized Cajun Pork Chops: Substitute 4 (1/2-inch-thick) boneless pork loin chops for chicken breasts. Proceed with recipe as directed.

This recipe is so good and so easy! My husband loves it, I love that it is quick and easy to fix. Use some Ranch dressing to dip it in, cools down the heat a little.

We really liked this recipe. It cooked quickly and was very tender. However, it is quite spicy, and next time I will use half the amount of cajun seasoning. I served it with grilled okra and corn on the cob. Again, my hint would be to use half the amount of cajun seasoning!

The chicken turned out juicy and tasty, but a little spicy for us. I will try it again with less cajun seasoning. We used Tony Cachere's which may have been too spicy. I made it with mashed potatoes and corn and it made a nice weekday meal.
