Leslie's BBQ Chicken Rub

This week is Grill Week at Menu Plan Monday.  Be sure to check out the other great grillin' recipes and tips I am featuring this week here

Any piece of chicken will yield great results with this rub.  Flavorful and juicy every time. I promise.

The pieces above are split chicken breasts that have been filleted from their bone and cut in half diagonally to make fairly even pieces.  I create a stock with the bones and left over meat to use for soups.  You'd be surprised how much meat will come off of 4 split breasts even after I cut off the meatiest part for boneless breasts. An extremely economical way to make your own boneless chicken breast!

Leslie's BBQ Chicken Rub

3 tsp. salt, kosher salt is best
2 tsp. smoked paprika 
2 good dashes cayenne pepper 
1 tsp. onion powder 
1 tsp. thyme 
1 tsp. chili powder
3 pinches lemon peel
1/2 tsp. garlic powder 
1/2 tsp. black pepper 
1 large roasting chicken , cut up 

Cut up chicken and place in dish lined with saran wrap or in a zip lock bag.  Cover with rub and marinate as long as you have, but at least 3 hours is best.

Remove chicken from fridge 30 minutes before ready to grill to allow it to come to room temperature.

Preheat gas grill on high for 10 to 15 minutes.  Turn down to medium high and sear pieces of chicken on both sides, about 5 minutes a side is usually good for boneless breasts.

If cooking chicken with bones, then after searing on both sides, turn grill down to low (just a little higher on the side with the thighs), and cook for 15 minutes and turn.  Cook for another 10 minutes and turn.  Cook for another 5 minutes or until a thermometer reading says it's done at 165 degrees.
