    • 2-3 chicken breasts pounded thin (1 pound)
    Chipotle Chicken Rub
    • 2tablespoons olive oil
    • 1teaspoon chipotle chili powder
    • 1/2teaspoon chili powder
    • 1/2teaspoon ground cumin
    • 1/2teaspoon smoked paprika

    Instructions
    1. In a small bowl, whisk chicken rub ingredients together and rub evenly all over chicken breasts. Time permitting, allow chicken to sit for 30 minutes at room temperature or refrigerate up to 8 hours then bring to room temperature before cooking.*
    2. STOVETOP DIRECTIONS
    3. If chicken has been refrigerated, let sit at room temperature for 15-30 minutes (time permitting).
    4. Heat a large non-stick skillet over medium high heat. Once very hot, add chicken and cook, undisturbed for 3-5 minutes, or until nicely browned (or blackened if you prefer) on one side. Turn chicken over, cover, and reduce heat to medium. Cook for approximately 5-7 more minutes (depending on thickness of chicken), or until chicken is cooked through. Remove to a cutting board and let rest 5 minutes before slicing.
    5. GRILLING DIRECTIONS
    6. If chicken has been refrigerated, let sit at room temperature for 15-30 minutes (time permitting).
    7. Meanwhile, grease and preheat the grill to medium heat, 375-450°F.
    8. Grill chicken undisturbed for 5-7 minutes per side, or until chicken is cooked through. (An inserted thermometer should read 165 degrees F.)
    9. Remove chicken from grill and let rest 5 minutes before slicing.
    Recipe Notes

    *Chicken is still delicious even if cooked immediately but is more flavorful the longer the rub marinates.
    **Total time does not include marinating chicken as this time will vary per individual.
