Spiced chicken breast :P

So i whipped this up one night for my mum and dads anniversary meal i cooked them just from thinking up what could work.

Ingredients: (for 2 people)
2 x chicken breasts,
2 tsp garlic powder,
2 tsp onion powder,
1 tsp paprika & 1 tsp smoked paprika, (or 2 tsp paprika)
A good 1/2 tsp of salt,
1/2 tsp white pepper,
1/3 tsp black pepper,
1/2 tsp curry powder.

In a bowl mix together all the spices&seasonings. If need be brush your chicken with 1/2 tsp milk (just a very small amount to give the chicken moisture for the spice mixture to stick to.) rub in the spice mix evenly onto the chicken making sure to use it all.
Heat up a grill frying pan (i usually brush about 1/2-1 small tsp of rapeseed oil onto the pan.) you can use any flavourless oil you want -i use rapeseed because its healthier.
Then when its hot enough to sizzle a little add the breasts on the grill and DO NOT MOVE THEM! If you move them you won't have them little grill lines!
I usually fry on medium-high heat (so you can ear the frying a lot) for 5-7 minutes. Then flip over for another 5 minutes. Then another 5 minutes again and flip and repeat until the colour is a dark golden red colour, the lines are dark and the meat is cooked in the middle.

I usually cook a couple of minutes longer just to make sure it is cooked (depending on the thickness of the chicken)

I usually serve with garlic potatoes and any vegetables I have in that I feel like.

Enjoy :)
