Cajun Chicken with Watermelon Mint Salsa

10 Min

Mmm! Spicy blackened Cajun-style chicken is topped off with a refreshing palate-cleansing Watermelon Mint Salsa. Sounds fancy, but this easy chicken skillet dish and watermelon topper is truly a match of tastes made in heaven.

What You'll Need

  • 2 cups chopped seedless watermelon
  • 2 tablespoons lime juice
  • 1 cup diced seeded tomato
  • Seeded jalapeno to taste
  • 1 tablespoon minced fresh cilantro
  • 1 tablespoon minced fresh mint
  • 1/2 cup chopped fresh scallion (green onion)
  • 2 tablespoons vegetable oil
  • 2 tablespoons granulated garlic
  • 2 tablespoons mild chili powder
  • 2 tablespoons ground cumin
  • 2 tablespoons paprika
  • 6 boneless skinless chicken cutlets

What to Do

  1. Make salsa by tossing watermelon, lime juice, tomato and jalapeno together, cover, and refrigerate until ready to serve.
  2. In a large bowl, mix together the cilantro, mint, scallions, oil, garlic, chili powder, cumin, and paprika. Add chicken and coat with the spice mixture. 
  3. Heat a nonstick skillet over medium-high heat and place chicken breasts in pan. Blacken on both sides and saute just until cooked through.
  4. Top with Watermelon Mint Salsa and serve immediately.
