Grilling season is fast approaching. This is one of my OAMC recipes that we love to cook on the grill. Adapted from Southern Living.

Great grilled chicken rub! We especially liked the addition of the cocoa; it gave the seasoning a nice "mole"-type flavor. Used on boneless skinless breasts, on the grill, and really enjoyed - thanks for sharing the recipe! Made for Spring Pick-A-Chef 2012
