Are you ready to give your grilled chicken breasts a facelift?  If you are, you totally need to try this simple dry rub the next time you grill!  A dry rub is simply that: a spice mixture that is rubbed onto chicken without any liquids involved.  It really couldn't be any easier to pull together and it will bring tons of flavor to your basic grilled chicken!

So, here's the deal,  You can use any combination of seasonings that you love, but this particular combination or seasoning and spices is the best I have had yet.  It is a little sweet, a little smoky, and packed with flavor.  The best part is that you probably already have most of the ingredients in your spice cabinet!

The one spice that is the key to bringing the smoky flavor to this rub is the smoked paprika.  If you don't have any yet, I highly suggest you pick some up on your next trip to the store.  The smoky flavor is bold and delicious and will transform your grilled dishes with just a little sprinkle.

I absolutely love it.  I daresay it may be one of my top three favorite spices!

This method of prepping chicken is best when using skinless chicken, but it is great for white meat or dark meat.  Just mix the spices, rub them on, and after a short cook over the flames, you'll be in for the best dry-rubbed chicken you've ever had!
