"I made the rub to put on chicken breasts to take to a party hosted by our male principal. I thought I'd double the batch and give it to him as a host gift. He loved and it was delicious on the chicken! I did cut the pepper in half, however. Thanks for the great recipe!"

"I did not 'cover and refrigerate overnight' and it was very good. Next time I'll think ahead and refrigerate over night."

"I put the rub on and put it in the oven rift away. It was delicious. My family loved it. It has a great flavor and the pork was very moist. I will definitely make this again."
