Quick Barbecue Chicken

Can you ever have too many barbecue recipes? Not a chance. Here’s another great way to cook chicken on the grill.

Quick Barbecue Chicken

1 teaspoon sugar
1 teaspoon chili powder
2 teaspoons olive oil
½ teaspoon salt
¼ teaspoon garlic powder
¼ teaspoon ground cumin
1/8 teaspoon ground ginger
1/8 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/8 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
1 (8-ounce) bone-in chicken breast halves (I use any type of chicken pieces)
Cooking spray

1. Prepare Grill

2. Combine first 9 ingredients in a bowl, stirring well. Loosen skin from chicken by inserting fingers, gently pushing between skin and meat; rub spice mixture evenly under skin over meat. Lightly coat skin with cooking spray. Place chicken, breast-down, on a grill rack coated with cooking spray; grill for 30 minutes or until thermometer inserted in the thickest part registers 165 degrees, turning twice. Let chicken stand 10 minutes. Remove skin, discard.

(Note: I rub the spice mixture on top of the skin. It’s delicious!)
