Laura’s Spice-rubbed Chicken Breasts
2 boneless, skinless chicken breasts
1 tbsp olive oil
1 tbsp brown sugar
1 tsp cumin
1 tsp garlic powder
1/2 tsp onion powder
1/2 tsp paprika
1/2 tsp dried thyme
1/4 tsp salt
1/2 tsp ground black or red pepper (depending on how spicy you want it!)
1/4 tsp ground allspice
Slice chicken breasts horizontally across the middle to create 2 thinner halves. One at a time, cover each half with plastic wrap and pound to an even thickness with a meat mallet.
Rub each piece with olive oil.
In a small bowl, combine the sugar and spices. Rub the mixture over both sides of each piece of chicken. A thin plastic gloves makes this a tidy operation.
Grill each side for 2 minutes over medium heat.* Let rest for five minutes.
*Alternative cooking method: On the stove-top, heat 1 tbsp. canola oil in a large skillet over medium-high. Brown a few minutes on both sides until the juices run clear. Allow to set covered with foil for five minutes.
