Chicken Breasts with a Spicy Rub ~ Ummmm, mmm!
This is good, I mean really good!
This rub did not let me down. It’s a fragrant, spicy rub, which was a winner for us, and is now my favorite rub for chicken.
For even cooking on the grill, I pounded the chicken until it all had the same thickness. Then I pressed the rub into the chicken and let it set for about 10 minutes before Bill started grilling it.
I know next to nothing about cooking on the grill ~ you’re on your own with that. But, I have to tell you; while the chicken was cooking, Bill called me out on the deck to get a whiff of the aroma drifting in the air outside. Ummm, mmm!!! It smelled divine!
This rub is so tasty and spicy, with just a little heat; it rendered the chicken darn near perfect. It was a hit for us!
Chicken Breasts with a Spicy Rub
2 teaspoons onion powder
1 teaspoon ground oregano
2 teaspoons garlic powder
½ teaspoon dry mustard
2 teaspoons ancho chile powder
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon seasoned pepper
Parsley, for garnish
4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts
Extra-virgin olive oil
Pound chicken breasts to even thickness and pat dry.
Lightly brush the chicken on both sides with olive oil.
Mix together the first 7 ingredients and apply to chicken.
Let stand 10 minutes or so before grilling.
But then ~ thinking about it ~ maybe it was Bill’s grilling expertise that made the chicken so good…
