dry rubbed grilled chicken.
made some kansas city dry rub and mocha java dry rub. this was my first time using dry rubs and they are pretty sweet. marinating takes at least 12 hours in meats to really soak in. i feel they kinda taint the meat and make it a little tougher though.
dry rubs season the meat before, during and after grilling. i dry rubbed my chicken breasts, refrigerated for an hour, and pulled out 20 minutes before grilling. this is to get the meat to room temperature. when you throw it on the grill, it’s less of a temperature shock than cold meats. the recipes also made for a lot of the dry rub so i put them in tupperware containers and will experiment more in the future.
grilled medium-low for about 10-12 minutes per side. came out looking great! i was getting the beginning of my sinus infection so couldn’t really taste much, but everyone said they were incredible. i tried 2 days later and was blown away. can’t wait to have them fresh. the kansas city rub went great with the bourbon whiskey bbq sauce i made. the coffee dry rub was kinda weird on chicken, but look forward to trying it on beef and pork!
