BBQ Rubbed Chicken

Hello all!
I spent part of my day in the kitchen attempting to come up with a few new recipes and they were both a success. The chicken rub that I mixed up made for a tasty new version of chicken but just wait until I share the new dessert that I made.

This dry rub can be mixed and rubbed on chicken or even pork and then baked or grilled.

BBQ Rubbed Chicken

3 tbsp. brown sugar
2 tsp. chili powder
2 tsp. paprika
1 1/2 tsp. black pepper
1 tsp. dry mustard
1 tsp. onion powder
1 tsp. salt
1/8 tsp. red pepper (optional)
3 lbs. chicken

Mix all together and rub onto chicken.
I baked mine at 350° until done but you could also grill this or even pound the chicken flat, add the rub and then quick fry on top of the stove. 
I added the red pepper for a little zip however you could leave it out if you don't like the heat.

I'll be back in the kitchen tomorrow making Pumpkin Rolls for the Thanksgiving holiday. They are so much better when you make them ahead of time and then freeze them. The flavors all mingle together and get even yummier!
If you've never tried to make pumpkin rolls before then I'll tell you that they are not that hard. It just takes a little time!
You can go HERE to get the recipe that I use!

Berry-licious sounds yummy and that chicken looks wonderful too, I'm gonna copy and try it;) My mom makes pumpkin rolls every year but I would imagine with the freezing they would be better!

Hi Jessica!
Thanks for the rub recipe. I have all those ingredients in my kitchen and it sounds so good.
Now, come on, try making some stars. It really is not too hard. I plan on trying some colored ones.
Have a wonderful Thanksgiving.

Mmmm! This looks delish! I can hardly wait for your pumpkin roll recipe. I've made them many times, but not ever ahead of time to freeze. Do you find it makes them more moist? Thanks for sharing!

I don't know that it really adds moisture to the rolls but I think it adds flavor. Kind of like wine, I guess, the more it sets the better the flavor.
