Sweet and Spicy Grilled Chicken

This post may contain affiliate links. Read our disclosure policy.

Today, I’ve got a quick and easy spice rub for chicken.  It is sweet, spicy, and oh so delicious.  However, don’t be scared off by the term “spicy”.  It’s not hot spicy, it’s flavor spicy.  I pulled this sweet and spicy grilled chicken recipe from my recent Simple and Delicious magazine

This is a recipe you can quickly mix up and toss on your grill any night.  Loved it.  So yummy and flavorful.  This sweet and spicy grilled chicken would also be wonderful as part of a salad.  I think a salad made with black beans, cheese, tomato, tortilla strips, this chicken, and a dressing made by mixing salsa with ranch dressing would be fabulous!

  1. Hey, there – just made this tonight, with a 1/2 tsp added of garlic powder and a few grinds of pepper. My whole family really enjoyed it and we definitely plan to make it again. I also used ancho chile powder since that is what I had. I think I may add a tiny bit of cayenne next time to make it a bit spicier. Thanks for a great, simple rub! It was yummy!

  9. I wish I had found this earlier today. I made chicken for dinner but just baked it with honey mustard salad dressing poured on top. I am bookmarking this for next weekend. Thanks.

  11. I use a rub similar to this one (minus the onion pwd) that I use on spareribs. It never would have occurred to me to try it on chicken. Looks delicious!

  13. I’ve tried something similar, but wrapped the chicken in bacon first before dredging it in the brown sugar-chili powder mixture. Not as healthy, but you know everything’s better with bacon! ahahahahaha

  25. Thanks for claifying “spicy”. 🙂 I probably wouldn’t have tried it because my young boys don’t like spicy things, but now I’m for sure trying it. We love grilling!! Thanks.
