Spice Up Your Chicken Dinner

Chicken Again?

A simple rub or glaze is an easy way to turn a plain chicken breast into a delicious dinner. "They boost the flavor without adding fat or too many extra calories," says chef Bobby Flay, host of Grill It! With Bobby Flay on the Food Network. Try one of these recipes.

Red Chili Rub

Mix together 3 tablespoons ancho chili powder, 1 teaspoon cinnamon, 1 teaspoon ground cumin, 1 teaspoon light brown sugar, 1 1/2 teaspoons salt, and 1/2 teaspoon pepper; rub over 4 to 6 chicken breasts that have been brushed with 2 tablespoons canola oil. Season bottoms with salt. Bake or grill.

Mustard-Molasses Glaze

Whisk together 1/2 cup molasses, 2 tablespoons Dijon mustard, 2 teaspoons ancho chili powder, and 1/4 teaspoon each salt and pepper. Grill or bake 4 to 6 breasts, drizzling glaze over chicken in the last minute of cooking. Once chicken is done, brush with remaining glaze.

This was good - not great though. It was a little bland - could've maybe used some sun-dried tomatoes or mushrooms or something else to add another layer of flavor. As it was, it wasn't that filling. Also, the prep time is definitely longer than 5 minutes, as you have to slice garlic, peppers, artichokes, and chicken. Still, it's worth a try.
