    Kozmic Blues's Note:

    This spice paste rubbed under the skin of your chicken pieces really gives this an intense flavor. Feel free to use your favorite bottled or home made BBQ sauce to baste.

    6. 6
      Season chicken pieces with salt and pepper and place them skin side down on foil lined baking sheet or broiler pan.

      My broiler is quite small, so I do these right in the oven (on broil) with the rack placed 7 or 8 inches below the element.
    8. 8
      Broil for 10 minutes.
    9. 9
      I turn the pan once to ensure even cooking.
    10. 10
      Remove pan from oven, and baste pieces with BBQ sauce.
    11. 11
      Place chicken back in oven, skin side up and broil until cooked through and crispy (about 10 minutes more) basting pieces occasionally.
    12. 12
      Sauce will brown slightly.
    13. 13
      Remove from oven and enjoy.

      Hi Kozmic Blues...made chicken last night, and I used your chicken rub, with my momemade BBQ sauce, and marinated it overnight in the fridge...well it turned out wonderful, very tasty and moist. I usually bake my chicken in the oven, but decided to give broiling a try, and was not dissapointed. this is a great chicken rub, one that I will use again. Thank you for posting :-)

      I smoked a cut up fryer using this rub. Everyone loved it, even cold! Thanks, Kosmic Blues!

      This rub was wonderful! I placed all ingredients for the rub in a large ziploc and tossed to coat 13 boneless, skinless chicken breasts. I then roasted them in my NuWave Oven and basted with Sweet Baby Ray's BBQ sauce. Thanks!
