There's the rub

I'm always looking for great ways to make chicken. It makes such an easy and healthy dinner protein, but it can get a little boring if you don't do something to spice it up.

A couple of months ago, I found this great Sweet and Spicy Grilled Chicken Rub on the Joyful Abode and have been meaning to try it. I don't like things super spicy so I used half the chili powder called for in the recipe and it worked out great. Sweet with a little bit of heat.

It went great with sweet potatoes (also from the Joyful Abode!) and grilled green beans. You'll get the sweet potato recipe tomorrow!
