Sweet Cajun Chicken

My husband was supposed to grill tonight, but I could make him do it in the rain.  A little bit of rain yes....rain with thunder that shakes the house and lightning that  lights up the whole neighborhood-no.  So I decided to "grill" the chicken inside. No I am not talking a George Foreman Grill, I used something WAY better.  I used my square cast iron grill pan that I got a few weeks ago.  Scott said that it was just as good if not better.  It was AWESOME! But I can't let him out of his grilling duties that easy!  This marinade definitely makes the top of my list for marinades.  The combination of spices is perfect!  I will be making again SOON!
Ingredients:
  • 4 Tablespoons of Brown Sugar
  • 1 teaspoon Minced Garlic
  • 2 Tablespoons of Soy Sauce
  • 1/2 Cup Canola Oil
  • 2 Tablespoons of Cajun Seasoning
  • 2 Tablespoons of Dried Parsley
  • 2 Tablespoons of Lemon Juice
  • 1/4 teaspoon onion powder
Combine all of the ingredients except chicken in a small bowl and mix well.  Marinate chicken in the fridge for about an hour.  
Heat cast iron grill pan (or outside grill) and cook thoroughly.  I didn't add any oil to the pan the marinade provides enough.
I served with Skinny Spinach Mac & Cheese and Herb Butter Corn on the Cob (which I cut off the cob this time)
ALL three of these recipes should be on your must make list!!!!!!!!
