  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 ha...

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 ti...

I just made Spicy Chicken Breasts for dinner, and my husband and I loved them!! They were absolutely delicious! However, I took the advice from a few others, and used half the amount of cayenn...

WOWEE!! This is some SPICY chicken! The flavor was excellent (almost like blackened chicken), but since I'm sort of a wimp when it comes to hot foods I think I'll cut the cayenne pepper in half ...

I used all the ingredients, except the salt – there is enough sodium in the recipe already. I did not use a grill, as it was about 12 degrees outside and I didn’t feel like bundling up! I put ...

Using 1 TBSP "GROUND" cayenne was too spicy for my family. Tried only 1 tsp. and it was just a little "hot", but more to our taste. Good... but we liked the "Jenny's Grilled Chicken Breasts" fr...

Sorry... I did not like this recipe at all. My husband, (who would rave about toast) said it was "ok". The seasoning was just not good, and brought no yummy flavor to the chicken. I even went...

We're new to the dry rub scene... and boy, have we been missing out. This was fabulous! Just the right amount of heat (I only used 1/2T of the cayenne pepper, though). If you're looking for a...
