Chicken: It's what's for dinner!

By Mike Thayer

It's Memorial Day Weekend, the official kickoff of grilling season in Iowa! 

Let's kick things off with a recipe with a kick!  It's a great recipe rub for chicken.

Mike's Spicy Chicken Rub

1 cup chili powder
1 tablespoon ground cumin
1 tablespoon dried coriander
1 teaspoon cayenne pepper
2 teaspoons dry mustard
2 teaspoons dried oregano
2 teaspoons dried parsley
1 tablespoon salt
1 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper

Turkishusaflags This is a great dry rub with a little influence from Turkey.  Apply it to your favorite cut of chicken for grilling.  I usually put it on about four hours prior to firing things up.   

Grilling tip:  Take your meat out of the refrigerator about 30 minutes prior to grilling, it will cook more evenly and have better flavor.
