  • 2 cups vegetable oil

  • 2 tablespoons Cajun seasoning

  • 2 tablespoons dried Italian seasoning

  • 2 tablespoons lemon-pepper seasoning

  • ¼ teaspoon garlic powder, or to taste

  • 10 skinless, boneless chicken breast halves - pounded to 1/2 inch thickness


  1. Whisk oil, Cajun seasoning, Italian seasoning, lemon-pepper seasoning, and garlic powder together in a large glass or ceramic bowl. Add chicken and toss to evenly coat. Cover the bowl with plastic wrap and marinate in the refrigerator for 30 minutes.

  2. Preheat an outdoor grill for high heat and lightly oil the grate.

  3. Remove chicken from marinade and shake off excess. Discard remaining marinade.

  4. Grill chicken on the preheated grill until juices run clear, 6 to 8 minutes per side. An instant-read thermometer inserted into the center should read at least 165 degrees F (74 degrees C).
