Best Olive Oil Rub Chicken Recipe

Tuesday, May 2, 2017

This is a delicious blend of spices that totally compliment this chicken. Easy to do and everyone always raves about it. Very moist and usually done on the grill in 10 to 15 minutes. You can also pan fry this but I like the healthier version

Best Olive Oil Rub Grilled Chicken

One of my favorite ways to prepare meats.

I love this chicken the best thing about this recipe is you can add it on top of a salad if you happen to have any leftovers, very tasty and accents your salad perfectly.

With summer coming, lighter meals are always a best bet and this one is bursting with great flavor!

Of course you can bake it if you don't have a grill. I have a photo of baked olive oil chicken at the end of the post. Enjoy!

Here's the recipe:

3 boneless chicken breasts

1 1/2 teaspoons granulated garlic

1 teaspoon cumin

1/2 teaspoon chili powder

1/2 teaspoon coriander

1/2 teaspoon smoked paprika

1/2 teaspoon sea salt

1/4 teaspoon black pepper

pinch of cayenne pepper

3 tablespoons olive oil


fresh chopped parsley, basil

freshly squeezed lemon juice

Mix everything in a bowl until well combined.

Rub the chicken on both sides.

Preheat grill until nice and hot. Place chicken on the grill, I usually lightly spray with cooking oil.

Grill on both sides 4 to 5 minutes. Make sure the juices run clear.

When serving top with fresh herbs and a squeeze of lemon juice on top.
