Indian Spiced BBQ Chicken

This BBQ Chicken uses a spice rub mixed of various spices typically used in Indian cooking. Serve with a side of vegetables or on top of a fresh salad for a quick and easy meal.

Servings: 2

Prep Time: 10 minutes

Grill Time: 15-20 minutes


2 medium sized chicken breasts

1 teaspoon salt

1/2 teaspoon ground cumin

1/2 teaspoon ground coriander

1/2 teaspoon curry powder

1/2 teaspoon black pepper

1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon

1/2 cup BBQ Sauce (We used Sweet Baby Ray’s BBQ Sauce)


In a small bowl, combine the salt, black pepper, cumin, coriander, curry powder, and cinnamon. Pat down the chicken breasts with a paper towel to remove any excess moisture. Rub both chicken breasts with the spice rub and set aside.

Heat your grill to a temperature of 450 degrees. Generously brush olive oil on the grates to keep the chicken from sticking. Place the chicken breasts on the grill. Cook one side for 8-12 minutes depending on thickness. Turn the chicken over onto the other side. Brush the cooked side with BBQ sauce. Wait another 7-10 minutes and then flip the chicken breast and brush with BBQ sauce.

Chicken is cooked when it reaches an internal temperature of 165 degrees. Remove the chicken and let rest for at least 5 minutes before serving.

Pictured above, we’ve served the chicken with sliced jalapeno peppers and our fajita seasoned potatoes.


Oven Time (in lieu of grill): 450 degrees for 18-20 minutes
