I don’t normally man the grill but this weekend I decided to handle it myself. I had bookmarked this recipe from Real Mom Kitchen. I was hoping this would appeal to my picky husband but alas after one bite he heated up some leftovers from the fridge. I thought it was pretty good but I would adjust some of the spices next time. The paprika and chili powder was a little too much. I did really like how the rub worked out on the chicken. It does give you a beautiful, quick and flavorful result.
Sweet and Spicy Chicken (from Real Mom Kitchen)
- 2 Tbsp brown sugar
- 1 Tbsp paprika
- 2 tsp onion powder
- 1 1/2 tsp salt
- 1 tsp chili powder
- 5 boneless skinless chicken breast halves (6 ounces each)
Trim all the fat from the chicken and pat dry with some paper towels. Combine the first five ingredients; rub over chicken. Coat grill rack with cooking spray for grills or brush with olive oil before starting the grill. Grill chicken, covered, for 4-5 minutes on each side or until a meat is white throughout.
