Cajun Chicken

Ok, so it may not be authentically cajun. But it should have at least some kick.

1 t. cayenne pepper
1 t. Black pepper
1 t. White pepper
2 t. thyme
1 T garlic powder
1 t. salt
2 T vegetable oil
1 1/2 cups apricot preserves
6 T dijon mustard
5 chicken breast halves
2 T butter

Mix seasonings together. Sprinkle chicken pieces with spice mix and let stand about 30 minutes. Heat butter and oil in pan over medium high heat, add chicken pieces, and saute until just done, about 5 minutes. Remove, drain on paper towels. Serve with apricot sauce. [In small saucepan combine preserves and mustard over low heat. Stir to mix and heat gently until melted and blended.]

Sounds good. With all that pepper, I'm afraid I might not be able to swallow it. I do like Cajun though.
