    Grilled Chicken

    Generously season chicken with rub and a little more salt. Place in resealable bag over night or for a minimum of 2 hours.

    Place chicken on foil lined pan and bake in 350-degree oven for 20 to 25 minutes or until thermometer reads 165.

    Use the grill to reheat the chicken and finish with the sauce. Brush the sauce on 10 minutes before pulling the chicken off the grill. Chicken should be hot and slightly charred with the sauce.
