    1. Preheat oven to 180 C / Gas mark 4. Mix together all of the spices. Rub one side of chicken breasts with spice mixture.
    2. Heat oil in a cast iron pan over high heat.
    3. Place chicken in hot pan, seasoned side down, and cook for 1 minute. Turn, and cook 1 minute on other side.
    4. Place breasts on a lightly greased baking tray. Bake in preheated oven for 5 to 10 minutes, or until no longer pink and juices run clear.

    Tip:

    This chicken is great as is with a side of your choice, but also try it in a bun as a chicken burger with lettuce and mayonnaise, or in a pitta with fresh salad.
