Step 1: Start with the simple spice rub

Don’t be intimidated. This simple chicken spice rub is really easy to throw together. Here’s what you’ll need:

  • Chili powder
  • Onion powder
  • Garlic salt
  • Pepper
  • Cumin

Simply mix the spices together in a small bowl, and sprinkle over your chicken pieces before grilling.

Step 2: Preheat your Grill and Add the Chicken

I have a gas grill, which takes about 10 minutes to preheat. (Individual grills vary.) 

Once I’m ready to add the chicken, I’ll reduce the heat to medium low. Then, add the chicken pieces that you’ve sprinkled with the spice rub.

Now is the time to brush with the first coat of Homemade Honey Barbecue Sauce (see below for easy recipe). I recommend placing about 1/2 cup of sauce into an individual dish. This sauce will come into contact with raw meat, so reserve it for brushing only.

Step 3: Turn the chicken, and brush again with the sauce

Once the chicken has cooked on the first side (see recipe below for cook times), turn the chicken to it’s opposite side, and brush again with the sauce. Close the grill lid, and let the chicken cook for the remainder of time.

Barbecue Chicken FAQ’s:

  • How do you grill chicken without burning it? Answer: Keep your grill temperature set to medium to medium-low heat. Any temperature higher than this may result in burnt chicken or worse yet, dry chicken! Additionally, fat has a tendency to flame up and burn. This is okay and should not affect the meat portion of the chicken.
  • How do I grill the perfect chicken breast? Answer: In my opinion it has everything to do with the temperature to which the breast is cooked. Start with a medium-low heat on your grill. Cook approximately 5-6 minutes a side (internal temp should be 165 degrees). Do you best to not over cook. Because breasts are very lean and have a low fat content, they are very susceptible to drying out if cooked just a minute or two longer than needed.
