Need a delicious dry rub for your meal tonight? Here is an easy and delicious chicken rub that is perfect for cooking on the grill or in a pan. In this recipe I grilled skinless chicken breasts in a cast iron skillet. This is a perfect way to reuse Crio Brü grounds.
Crio Brü Rub
- 1tbs grounds (if using slightly moist grounds use heaping tablespoon, if dry, use level tablespoon)
- 1 tlbs sugar in the raw
- 2 cloves garlic finely minced
- 1 tsp onion powder
- 1 tsp cumin
- 1 tsp chili powder
- 1 tsp black pepper
Rub mixture on chicken, allowing to sit for about 15 minutes before cooking or up to 24 hours ahead of time for a more intense flavor.
Brown chicken on both sides in cast iron skillet using a small amount of oil (I used sunflower oil, but olive oil or canola oil would be fine). Once meat is browned, place entire cast iron skillet in pre-heated oven (350 degrees) for an additional 15 minutes.
Notice that I did not add any salt to the rub. Salt has a tendency to draw out moisture from the meat while it cooks, so I chose to sprinkle my dish with salt before serving.
Try this dry rub recipe as is, adjust it to your own taste, or make it personal by adding your own favorite herb or spice! Enjoy!
