Each a delicious combination of flavors and textures that come together to invoke a big Muchas Gracias! 🙂
Method:
Thinly slice boneless chicken breast by sliding a sharp knife horizontally through it. Spread a generous amount of Cajun rub on a shallow plate.

Press the sliced chicken on the rub, to cover completely on both sides.

Preheat grill to the highest setting and brush with oil.
Sear chicken on the grill 4 minutes on one side

and then another 3-4 minutes after you flip.

Now transfer chicken to a cutting board and let it rest for 4-5 minutes to let the juices redistribute. Then slice thinly.
