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.
