Recipe by Chef JEWELZLADY in

I found this recipe in Cooking Club magazine, (Feb/Mar 2010).This recipe showcases what a significant impact simple ingredients can have. Three spices-cumin, smoky paprika and sea salt- meet up in a rub that not only adds loads of flavor but gives the chicken a beautiful brick-red color. I tried this recipe and fell in love with it. You can adjust the amounts to your liking. I'm single so I only made 1 large breast, boy was I sorry I didn't make more.
