This sweet and savory rub for grilled chicken relies on ingredients you most likely have on hand already like brown sugar, dry mustard, and onion powder. It's a quick recipe for nights when you’re not sure what to make for dinner.

Prep: 5 | Total Time: 25
  • 2 teaspoons
    light brown sugar
  • 2 teaspoons
    dry mustard
  • 1 teaspoon
    onion powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon
    kosher salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon
    white pepper, or freshly ground black pepper
  • 1-1 1/4 pounds
    chicken breast, boneless, skinless
  1. Combine brown sugar, dry mustard, onion powder, salt and pepper in a small bowl.
  2. Coat both sides of chicken with the rub up to 30 minutes before grilling or broiling.
  3. Preheat grill to medium-high or position a rack in upper third of oven and preheat broiler.
  4. To grill: Oil the grill rack. Grill the chicken, turning once, until an instant-read thermometer inserted into the thickest part registers 165°F, 4 to 8 minutes per side.
  5. To broil: Line a broiler pan (or baking sheet) with foil and coat with cooking spray. Place the chicken on the foil. Broil, watching carefully and turning at least once, until an instant-read thermometer inserted into the thickest part registers 165°F, 10 to 15 minutes total.
