Blackened Chicken (similar to Bourbon Street Grill?)

I love the blackened chicken at Bourbon Street Grill, but the only Bourbon Street Grills around me are at the malls and I don't always want to go to the mall (which are both on the other side of the city). Does anyone know of any chain fast food/takeout type restaurants that would have something similar to the bourbon street grill blackened chicken?? I'm in North Brampton if that helps.

Thanks in advance!

Not black (silkie) chicken, blackened: you cover chicken with a cajun bbq rub and grill it on high heat so it smokes and blackens. You can blacken fish and stuff too.

Go to Earl’s restaurant and they have a blackened chicken dish. It’s so good.

You can do it at home but you need a real, good extractor fan hood. Cost me over $2k so I can make blackened food at home.

You need not just the meat and spices but cast-iron pan, really hot burner, and lots of butter too. According to the late Paul Prudhomme anyway.

looked into this, but not interested in spending $2k on a fan hood :-(

thanks, will check it out next time I'm there (but it is even further from my house!)...starting to see that it may not be as easy to find/close to home as I thought!

I have not been to Bramalea city centre in a while. Would that not be your closest Bourbon street grill location?...that is, if they're in the food court there...?
If it ain't broke, don't fix it!

Do it outside.
Now it's the yard's problem.
Do you not have anything else to do rather than argue with strangers on the internet
Nope. That's why I'm on the internet arguing with strangers. If I had anything better to do I'd probably be doing it.

If you do go to Southern Accent, trust me (and the blogto.com reviewer) on this one - try the blackened chicken livers! Even if you don't usually like liver (I definitely don't) the blackening spices make you forget you're eating liver.

I saw the school kids in the kitchen at bourbon street grill through the little window, cooking it up in a cast iron pan.

Cumin is integral in the Cajun spice.
Roast that cumin and you gots geera/jeera.

You mean that blackened General Tso "bourbon chicken" garbage they serve with" authentic" Cajun soy sauce packets?

Remember, they go by several names, on both sides of the border. Bourbon St. Grill, Kelly's Cajun Grill, Cajun Cafe, Caribbean Queen... all serving the same shit.
