Thighs and drumsticks are often cheaper than breasts, making this a budget-friendly barbecue choice. The spice rub is a mixture of spices you probably already have in your pantry.

 

 

 

How to Make It

Step 1

Place chicken on a rimmed baking sheet. Make spice rub: Combine all ingredients in a small bowl. Sprinkle spice mix over chicken and rub in. Cover with plastic wrap and chill for at least 6 hours.

Step 2

Make sauce: Combine all ingredients in a large pan. Bring to a boil, stirring continuously. Simmer, uncovered, for 15 minutes, stirring occasionally, until thickened. Remove from heat.

Step 3

Preheat grill to medium low; oil when hot. Cook chicken for 10 minutes, turn over and cook for 8 minutes longer. Brush sauce on one side of chicken, turn over and cook for 3 minutes. Brush remaining side with sauce, turn over and cook for 3 minutes, or until cooked through.

Same here. I used the base rub and let it sit overnight. The flavors add a little kick to the chicken and our guests raved.

I'll use different BBQ sauses, but the base rub is what REALLY makes this chicken great!
