Expert Tips

  • Refrigerating the "rubbed" chicken 20 to 30 minutes before grilling really enhances the flavor.
  • You can bake the chicken. Place the rubbed chicken in a foil-lined shallow baking pan and bake in a 375°F oven for 25 to 30 minutes.
  • Always read labels to make sure each recipe ingredient is gluten free. Products and ingredient sources can change.
