American Style Sweet 'n Spicy Chicken Rub

It's sunny and nearly 70 degrees Fahrenheit, so it's Grilling Season!

My DD created the following recipe we enjoyed this evening and my DH grilled.

American Style Sweet 'n Spicy Chicken Rub

2 tsp Red Wine Vinegar
1/4 cup lemon juice
1/2 cup brown sugar
dash of sea salt and cracked pepper
1/4 Tablespoon Famous Dave's Country Roast Chicken Seasoning (or paprika)
1/2 tsp parsley flakes
1 tsp paprika
1 1/2 Tablespoon lemon & pepper salt
1 tsp celery salt

Mix the dry ingredients together. Set aside. Mix the liquids together and coat on chicken.  Rub chicken with the dry mixture on both sides.  Allow to sit for one hour, then grill.  Serve with fresh salad.

Enough for six to eight chicken breasts.

PS  This is what we had for dessert this evening - strawberries and whipped cream!


  1. Thanks for posting all the great "old" recipes.
    I plan on making the American Style Sweet 'n Spicy Chicken Rub, but can't figure out what lemon and pepper salt is. Is it possibly lemon pepper and salt? If so, is it 1 1/2 Tablespoons of each, lemon pepper and salt or 1 1/2 Tablespoons of equal amounts of lemon pepper and salt mixed. Is there really 3 salts (sea salt, celery salt and lemon pepper and salt)in the rub? I just need to be sure before putting this together. Thank you.

  2. Correction 'toole': It is 1 1/2 tablespoons of lemon pepper. Our apologies!
