I got this idea from a long-ago TV show (Little House on the Prairie) and used what I had in my kitchen to make the rub. My husband likes it a lot.

  • Stir olive oil, cinnamon, salt, lemon pepper, garlic powder, and thyme together in a small bowl; rub onto chicken to coat. Arrange coated chicken pieces into a baking dish with the skin side down.

  • Bake in preheated oven for 35 minutes, turn, and continue cooking until the chicken is no longer pink at the bone and the juices run clear, 20 to 25 minutes more. An instant-read thermometer inserted near the bone should read 165 degrees F (74 degrees C). Remove from oven, cover loosely with aluminum foil, and rest chicken for about 15 minutes before serving.

Thought I'd try it since my husband's has diabetes and the cinnamon is good for that. It came out really good. Read More

I planned to make the Buttery Quinoa dish that called for grilled chicken but no instructions for flavoring. Since the quinoa dish required fresh lemon juice I looked for a rub that used it as well. I used fresh lemon juice instead of lemon pepper fresh chopped thyme instead of dry and grilled instead of baked. Delicious! The cinnamon made the chicken stand out from the tastes in the quinoa.

Instead of making it in the oven I grilled the chicken. 4 1/2 minutes a side. This allowed for a nice bbq sauce like flavor that popped. I served it with steamed veggies coated with ranch dressing mix. Read More
