While cleaning out my kitchen cabinets, I found a bottle labeled "Chicken Rub."
I was SO excited! I had forgotten all about this fantastic recipe ~ one my husband said was a keeper and one that I had to make again. We loved it so much that we tripled the rub recipe, labeled the container, and...
forgot about it.
Not anymore. I love that this recipe has spices that you may already have in your kitchen. It uses Ancho Chili Powder , a popular chili powder with mild heat and a sweet, fruity flavor.
This recipe does NOT require any marinating, yet the chicken comes out full of flavor and juicy every time.
Simply sprinkle the rub onto both sides of plain, boneless chicken breasts...
Give it a spritz of oil to keep it sticking onto the grill...I love my MISTO sprayer !

and plop them onto a hot, preheated grill.
I like to cook my boneless chicken for 4-5 minutes each side, turning them 45º each time to give the chicken those ever sought after # grill marks. Total cooking time is only about 16-20 minutes.
Take the chicken off the grill, cover, and let it rest for 5-10 minutes before cutting. You want those juices to get redistributed all throughout the chicken to make it moist and juicy...
Score! I couldn't resist a nibble. Oh, sooooo good.
Not only did we put these in our tacos, we tossed them into some Roasted Garlic Fettucine Alfredo. They would also be fantastic in a tossed green salad.
