Cajun Chicken

We love to use our grill. Since we live where we live, we can use it year-round. Here's one of our favorite recipes for grilled chicken...

6 chicken breast fillets, skinned
6 TBL butter
1 tsp garlic powder
2 tsp onion powder
2 tsp cayenne pepper
1 tsp dried thyme
2 tsp paprika
1 ½ tsp salt
½ tsp white pepper
1 tsp black pepper
¼ tsp cumin

Slice each chicken breast in half horizontally, making two pieces of about the same thickness. Flatten them slightly with the heel of your hand. Lay them on a large plate or place in shallow dish. Melt the butter in a small saucepan over a low heat without letting it color (I don't always use the butter and it still works out). Combine all the remaining ingredients in a bowl and stir to blend well. (I pour the mixed spices into a shaker jar.) Brush the chicken pieces on both sides with a little of the melted butter or margarine, then sprinkle evenly with the seasoning mixture. Heat grill for about 5-8 minutes. Grill chicken until juices run clear.
