Chicken with New Mexican-Style Rub

Just five minutes of prep and you can pop this tasty dish into the oven.

Start to finish: 27 minutes
Makes: 4 servings


  • 1 tablespoon dried oregano
  • 1 tablespoon dried thyme
  • 1 teaspoon coriander seed
  • 1 teaspoon aniseed
  • 1/4 cup chili powder
  • 1 teaspoon paprika
  • 1/2 teaspoon cracked black pepper
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 4 medium skinless, boneless chicken breast halves (about 1 pound)


  1. For rub, using a mortar and pestle, grind together oregano, thyme, coriander seed, and aniseed. Stir in chili powder, paprika, cracked black pepper, and salt. Set seasoning mixture aside.
  2. Rinse chicken; pat dry. With your fingers, rub some of the seasoning mixture onto both sides of chicken breast halves.
  3. Place chicken on the unheated rack of a broiler pan. Broil 4 to 5 inches from heat for 12 to 15 minutes, or until tender and no longer pink, turning once.

(Store leftover seasoning in a cool, dry place and use within 6 months.)
