Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F (191 degrees C).
Stir together the spices. (You can also make a larger batch of blackened seasoning here, and just use 2 tablespoons for this recipe.)
Pat the chicken breasts dry with a paper towel. Season both sides with the blackened seasoning.
Heat a cast iron skillet over high heat. Reduce heat to medium, add the olive oil, and heat until shimmering (this will happen quickly). Add the chicken breasts. Cook for about 2 minutes per side, until browned.
Transfer the skillet to the oven and cook for 7-10 minutes, until the chicken internal temperature reaches 165 degrees F (74 degrees C). (You can also take it out a few degrees before if you like, as the internal temperature will rise a few degrees while resting.)
Remove chicken from the skillet immediately to prevent overcooking. Tent with foil and rest for 5 minutes before serving.
Serving size: 1 chicken breast.
