In a red hot, dry skillet, place the breasts spice side down. Cook on that side until breasts are almost cooked through, and have achieved a nice even black color. Flip and cook on the other side for 1 minute. Top each breast on the blackened side with 2 oz. of bleu cheese. Remove from heat and serve inside a roll.
