Cumin Grilled Chicken Breast

If you are looking for a quick and easy chicken meal on a Friday night I have that recipe!!! A flavorful tasty and juicy cumin grilled chicken breast. I have to say that this rub that Ellie Krieger suggested is outstanding for grilled chicken. The cumin gave it a nice smoky flavor. The chicken was very tender and juicy. I also grilled some salmon with this rub and OMGoodness it was delicious. So if you like the taste of cumin this is a great recipe you should try!!!!

I used a meat mallet to pound the chicken before I cook or season it because it makes it so much tender. I place the chicken between two pieces of plastic wrap and pound until 1/2 inch thick. The plastic wrap keeps little chicken particles from flying all over the place...Thanks plastic wrap!!!!

The pounding is done. Time to season the chicken with the cumin rub.

RUB Ingredients:
Skinless boneless chicken breast halves
2 teaspoon of olive oil
1 teaspoon ground cumin
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon pepper
I double all the ingredients for 5 chicken beast halves.

Grill chicken breast on medium high heat for 4-6 mins on each side depending on the thickness of your chicken breast and it will turn out juicy and tender. Remember let it rest for 5 minutes before cutting....yummie!!!!

Make Fridays A Little More Special Than Normal!!
