Yesterday I shared the Espresso Candied Pecans, and today is the Best Ever Grilled Chicken rub from my cookbook! It is a staple. In fact, it’s the only grilled chicken I make! It’s flavorful and delicious. You can easily make a big batch and send it along with some grilling gear to the grill master in the family. I know I’d like that gift!
