Chicken with a Rub (4)

FullSizeRender(45)

Have you ever wondered what the spices are in a rub? You can buy various pre-prepared spice mixes in the supermarket and just sprinkle them over the meat of your choice but I wanted to come up with a combination of spices of my own and I did and the blend uses fairly basic spice cupboard ingredients – cayenne pepper, cumin, garlic salt, paprika and salt and pepper.

Good hot or cold – I sliced the chicken breasts and had with a salad. Would be good with black beans and rice too.

4 x chicken breasts

1-2 tbsp. olive oil

For the spice rub

1/2 tsp. cumin

1/2 tsp. garlic salt

1/4 tsp. cayenne pepper

1/4 tsp. paprika

Salt and freshly ground black pepper

Place chicken breasts in a roasting tin and coat with oil on both sides.

Put all the spice rub ingredients in a bowl with a lid on and give it a good shake.

Sprinkle over the chicken breasts and cook for 1/2 hour at 350 degrees
