With the end of barbeque season approaching, I thought I'd post this recipe before it's too late. This spice rub really adds nice flavor to grilled chicken. We especially love the spiced chicken breasts on a Jalapeno Swiss Chicken Burger (pictured above).
Chicken Spice Rub Recipe
3 tsp paprika
1-1/2 tsp crushed basil
1-1/2 tsp sugar
Salt and pepper to taste (when grilling)
Combine all of the spices together in a small mixing bowl. Pour the spice rub over the chicken and rub it evenly all over the chicken. Salt and pepper the chicken after you put it on the grill. This recipe is enough rub for 3 chicken breasts. Leftovers can be stored in an airtight container or plastic bag in your pantry for future use.
To make a Jalapeno Swiss Chicken Burger, you just need a spiced grilled chicken breast, a slice of swiss cheese, sliced pickled jalapeno, and a bun. Enjoy!
