I discovered this recipe one Sunday afternoon in the WW magazine when I was looking to find a different way to prepare chicken. This recipe is very easy and very tasty. I served it with rice and green beans. The chicken can be cooked immediately after using the rub, but for a more intense flavor, marinate for a couple of hours in the fridge or overnight.This chicken has a sweet and spicy flavor and can be served with a squeeze of fresh lime.
