I started to use this rub on a london broil till I realized that it had spoiled in the refrigerator. Decided that since I had already mixed up the spices I would use them on 4 large boneless chicken breasts that I had in the freezer. I drizzled olive oil over each of the chicken breasts and then sprinkled the rub on one side of the chicken breast. I placed the chicken breasts on the grill (rub side down) and sprinkled the remaining rub on the chicken breasts. I sprinkled olive oil on the top of the chicken breasts each time I turned them. The chicken breasts came out great! My husband couldn't believe that I had just put the rub on (no sitting) the chicken breasts and threw them on the grill as he felt the flavor permeated the chicken breast. The only thing I might do differently next time is reduce the amount of salt by half as you don't have as large a piece of meat with chicken vs. london broil. I will definitely use this rub on my chicken breasts in the future - and I might even try it on a london broil.

I thought the recipe was fantastic and wouldnt reduce the herbs one bit. I marinaded overnight and it turned out great. It is a wonderful easy and quick marinade recipe, too.

This was good, but I think the herbs were too overpowering. I will make it again, and reduce the herbs by half.
