Spicy Pork Roast

I work in a kitchen preparing lunch for the students at a small private school. I enjoy cooking and entertaining friends and family. My husband and I often cook the meals together for these gatherings.

    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.
