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

This was a really good seasoning mix - i did use it on boneless, skinless chicken breasts which I pounded to about 3/8-inch thick. I then baked the chicken in the oven and we had the finished product on top of a "chicken taco salad". The spices were just right and gave the chicken a nice flavor. Made for "I RECOMMEND" tag game.

Yum, this was good and got two thumbs up from all of us. I made these into Southwest chicken burgers. Grilled for about 5 minutes each side and served on buns with lettuce, tomato, red onion and mango chutney. They were delicious. The amount of heat was spot on and the cocoa was something we've never tried before with a savoury dish...we liked it a lot. Thanks for the recipe - it will go into our favourites!

This was a wonderful way to do chicken! It was also so easy to prepare. I discovered that I was out of garlic powder, so I just omitted the salt and used garlic salt in place of the garlic powder and salt. I was nervous about the cocoa, but I have heard that chocolate and spice work great together. It totally worked! Wonderful. It was nice and juicy. It was spicy, but not like really out of control spicy. You could taste the spices and the flavor of the heat...and not just feel the heat! lol. Great recipe I will make often. Thanks for posting.

This was so salty!! We had to peel the top layer of meat off to get rid of the spice. Underneath, the chicken was quite moist.

This was super good! I will be trying it for OAMC as well. Everyone was confused by adding cocoa to the spices, but certainly no one complained once they ate it!. I used minced garlic instead of powder, but just cause I'm a super garlic lover :)
