    Sweet & Savory Grilled Chicken

    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.

    Ingredients

    • 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

    Instructions

    Step 1
    Combine brown sugar, dry mustard, onion powder, salt and pepper in a small bowl.
    Step 2
    Coat both sides of chicken with the rub up to 30 minutes before grilling or broiling.
    Step 3
    Preheat grill to medium-high or position a rack in upper third of oven and preheat broiler.
    Step 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.
    Step 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.
