Mediterranean Rubbed Chicken

This week I have the privilege of co-hosting Fiesta Friday with Loretta of The Safari of the Mind. Loretta and I are thrilled to join Angie’s wonderful Party! Fiesta Friday is a great way for fellow bloggers and visitors to check out new and interesting posts and add their own posts into the mix. I welcome all of you to join in the fun by clicking on the link at the bottom of today’s post or linking directly to Fiesta Friday #120. Loretta and I will be visiting all participating posts as this week’s Fiesta Friday representatives and features selectors. Let’s have some fun!

Today’s Mediterranean Rubbed Chicken is a flavorful addition to the Fiesta Friday party! Crushed fennel and cloves are combined with sweet brown sugar and savory onion, garlic & cumin and rubbed all over chicken breasts, thighs, drums and wings…then grilled to perfection. So much flavor…you’re going to love these!

    1. Thanks Julie! We eat a lot of chicken in our house too – so I’m always trying different spices and combinations – everyone loved this one! So I think you will too! 💗
