"I like Fried Boneless Skinless Chicken breasts,and I'm always looking for different ways to season them. And Bergy's #recipe5279 is an " AWESOME " seasoning. So I thought, " Why not combine the two ? ". This recipe is the end result. According to your own tastes, feel free to add more Cajun Spice Mix. If you want the recipe to turn out just as it's written,please use the seasoning that I mentioned.I'm not going to list the ingredients for making gravy,if you want to make gravy from some of the "drippings " that's your choice. If you decide to make this, PLEASE plan ahead,you need at least 4 hours for the chicken to soak in the buttermilk.You will need an extra 10 minutes prep time to flour the chicken.

Cut back on the Cajun seasoning a bit so it wouldn't be too spicy for us and upped some of the other ingredients to suit our tastes. Chicken burned a little in the pan but still tasted pretty good.
