This middle eastern grilled chicken rub turns that boring, grilled chicken breast into something pretty special!
I eat a lot of chicken. And sometimes, I wonder how many different ways I can possibly prepare it.
I mean, I know the possibilities are pretty endless, but chicken is just one of those things that can draw a blank for me sometimes. I mean really, how many different ways are there to prepare chicken????
Well, thankfully, I found one more. This was the absolute best chicken I’ve made so far. Mini Chef didn’t say much, he just ate. So I guess that’s a compliment coming from a picky 4 year old.
I loved it too and was grateful to have something different again. I’ve been making a lot of baked Tarragon Chicken lately, and it was starting to get boring. Thank goodness for spice rubs! The possibilities truly are endless!
