Directions

  1. In a medium bowl, mix together the paprika, garlic powder, salt, onion powder, thyme, cayenne pepper, and ground black pepper. Set aside about 3 tablespoons of this seasoning mixture for the chicken; store the remainder in an airtight container for later use (for seasoning fish, meats, or vegetables).
  2. Preheat grill for medium-high heat. Rub some of the reserved 3 tablespoons of seasoning onto both sides of the chicken breasts.
  3. Lightly oil the grill grate. Place chicken on the grill, and cook for 6 to 8 minutes on each side, until juices run clear.

This was amazing. Instead of using it as a rub, I put the spices and chicken into a gallon sized zip-lock bag with olive oil as a marinade. If you like it spicy, this is the recipe to use.

Used this recipe as the base for a chicken taco salad at a neighborhood Cinco de Mayo party. Quite good. Followed the recipe exactly but used smoked hungarian paprika as that's all I had on hand. Noted the thyme was overpowering - hence only 4 stars.... Using 1 tsbp of cayenne pepper would have been too much for "just chicken", but by utilizing it in a salad, the greens cut the spiciness. Perfect recipe to replace beef in a taco salad for those of us who are watching cholesterol!!! Thanks Barbara for a great recipe!

Wowza! I was sneezing throughout the entire mixing process. Take heed: this recipe makes a lot. Rub was good, but I feel the thyme overpowered the blend. (I’m not a big fan of the herb.) Next time I will decrease to ½ Tbs. and keep the rest of the ingredients the same. I love the fiery/hot taste mix gave my poultry. It was even good in my salad the next day.
