  • 2 Boneless Chicken Breasts large or 4 small
  • 1 tbsp Olive Oil

Spice Rub

  • 2 tsp Paprika
  • 2 tsp Chili Powder
  • 4 tsp Brown Sugar
  • 1 tsp Onion Powder
  • 1 tsp Garlic Powder
  • 1 tsp Salt
  • 1 tsp Black Pepper


  • Preheat oven to 450 degrees. Line a baking sheet with aluminum and coat with cooking spray.
  • In a wide bowl mix together the rub ingredients. Set aside.
  • Brush the chicken breasts with olive oil on both sides. Coat the chicken with the spice rub and place the coated chicken on the prepared pan.
  • Cook time will depend on the size of your chicken breasts. Mine were large (over 10 oz each) so I cooked for 15 minutes, flipped, and cooked for another 15 minutes. For smaller breasts, cook for 10 minutes, flip, cook for another 7 minutes and check the internal temperature. Once the internal temperature has reached 165 degrees, you're good to go!
  • Let the cooked chicken rest on a cutting board for 5 minutes prior to serving or slicing.
  • Serve as is or slice and serve over a salad.
  • NOTE: If you're making this ahead, wait until you're ready to serve the chicken to slice it to preserve the moisture.
