Grilled Sweet Basil Rub Chicken

From: Jenn@eatcakefordinner


1 tsp. salt

1 tsp. sugar

1/2 tsp. garlic powder

1/2 tsp. onion powder

1/2 tsp. paprika

1/4 tsp. freshly ground black pepper

juice of 1/2 a lemon

1 Tbl. chopped fresh basil

a few dashes Worcestershire sauce

1 - 2 Tbl. extra-virgin olive oil

4 chicken breasts, boneless, skinless


Combine salt, sugar, garlic powder, onion powder, paprika, ground black pepper, lemon juice, chopped basil, Worcestershire and olive oil.  Stir together to form a paste.  Rub mixture over both sides of each chicken breast, using every last drop of the basil rub.  Place chicken in a casserole dish and cover with plastic wrap.  Refrigerate and allow to marinate for at least one hour.  When ready to cook, preheat the grill.  I used my George Foreman Grill, but you could always use an outdoor grill if you prefer.  Grill chicken until internal temperature registers 165 degrees on an instant read thermometer.  Serves: 4.
