Ingredients

1 teaspoon onion powder
1 teaspoon garlic powder
1 teaspoon dried oregano
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon cayenne pepper
1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
4 (6-ounce) chicken breast halves
Cooking spray

Preparation

1. Preheat grill to medium-high heat.

2. Combine first 6 ingredients in a small bowl. Sprinkle spice mixture evenly over both sides of chicken, pressing lightly to adhere. Place chicken on grill rack coated with cooking spray; grill 6 minutes on each side or until done.

Note:

Commercial rubs may contain gluten, so keep this simple but versatile six-ingredient rub in your pantry. It quickly turns ordinary steak, chicken, or fish fillets into a tasty entrée. Vary the main herb, oregano, to suit your taste—the same amount of dried basil or thyme is just as delicious. Store it in an airtight container to maintain freshness.
