Broiled Chicken with a Cajun twist
2 tbsp blackened Cajun seasoning***
1 tsp salt
1 cup sour cream (fat free is okay)
1 cup cottage cheese (chive flavored is the best)
1 egg white
Mix cottage cheese and sour cream in a bowl. Set aside.
Trim fat off chicken and score lightly with knife in lines about 1" apart.
Dip chicken in egg white (or brush egg white on with pastry brush).
Rub chicken with blackened Cajun seasoning and salt.
Cover a cookie sheet or broiler pan with tin foil. Make sure sides of foil are turned up to prevent spills. Place chicken, scored side down, on foil and broil at level closest to flame. Cook five minutes on each side or until the second side is cooked and slightly browned. Divide the cottage cheese mix and put on chicken breasts. (It will look like too much- but it's not!) Broil for an additional five minutes or until cottage cheese is melted and slightly browned. Serve with drippings poured on top.
***Blackened Cajun seasoning can be made by combining to taste about a teaspoon of each - garlic powder - onion powder –cayenne pepper - chili powder – cumin and
1/2 teaspoon black pepper
