4 FANtastic Chicken Rubs

Rub Your Chicken for Summer Grilling

For Some Feisty FANtastic Yum! 

As it gets hotter, it is time to take the heat out of the kitchen – either head out to Feisty Chicken & Grill for fire-grilled 100% chicken – dine-in or take out, or have some fun with your backyard grill!

Among hot dogs and hamburgers, chicken is one of the tastiest foods to make on the grill.

It’s high in protein and low in calories.  And when you marinate, smoke or barbeque, it comes out tasting delicious! (In case you haven’t tried us yet, at Feisty, we fire-grill our fresh chicken with our secret marinade…)

A dry chicken rub builds flavor into every part of the chicken – from wings, to thighs to the entire bird.  Here are some popular rubs you might want to try:

1.  Fresh Herbed Rub – This blends thyme, sage, rosemary, coarse salt, coarse pepper, crushed red pepper and minced garlic.

2.  Jerk Chicken – This kicks up the spices with a tinge of sweetness.  Blend sugar, thyme, nutmeg, cloves, crushed red pepper, allspice and salt to create this rub.

3.  Chili Chicken – For those of you who enjoy more of a kick than our Signature Feisty Sauce; blend paprika, hot chili powder, cumin and dark brown sugar to achieve this spicy taste.

4.  “Beer Can” Chicken – This blend originated in Mississippi.  In the case of truly creating this dish, the chicken is literally cooked over a beer can.  But you can achieve the taste using the rub instead.  There are several variations of this, but one of the original blends for “Beer Can” Chicken is paprika, light brown sugar, chili powder, garlic, granulated onion, cumin and rosemary.

If you have any chicken rub recipes that you would like to share, or ideas on what new flavor of sauce Feisty Chicken & Grill should create, we would love to hear from you!

How A New Chicken Brand Got “Hatched”

Feisty Chicken & Grill

When you have a brand named “Feisty,” you know there is some word play going on behind it. Feisty Chicken & Grill is a new “fastaurant” known for serving 100% fresh grilled chicken, but Feisty is more than just a name – it’s a persona!

Like the taste of your Feisty Chicken Sandwich, Feisty Bowl, or Feisty Legs – Feisty is a little “saucy.” It has spunk, a little edginess.

So here we are, ready to get cluckin’ about our new fast food brand!

Recently on Facebook.com/FeistyChickenAndGrill, we “hatched” our story of how Feisty went from a regular chicken with a common red comb – to a vibrant green-combed spunky chicken!  We wanted to show Feisty’s quest for something different, fresh and 100% – to reflect that we only serve fresh grilled chicken, never frozen or processed.

Just down the road, Feisty got the royal treatment at Pretty Foo Foo Salon & Spa in Rancho Cucamonga. Owner and stylist, Jenn Reinecker, “hatched” the new look as curious on-lookers gathered.


Feisty chicken character came alive in our new television commercials, as did local personalities – real Feisty FANaticsstudents, teachers and business managers from the community. These Feisty FANatics, chatted up the flavors they were cravin’ from grilled chicken with sauces, veggie burgers, burgers with caramelized onions and frozen yogurt, quickly discovering what they were all cravin’ was just across the road.

After a video shoot, some editing, voice-over… it all came together and bam… the start of our “Cross the Road to Feisty Chicken” campaign was hatched!

Keep an eye out while you watch your favorite cable shows on such networks as:  AMC, HGTV, Fox News, E!, Headline News, and you might just catch one of our “Cross the Road” commercials. In case you miss it, they’re on 24/7 on our Feisty Chicken & Grill YouTube channel.
