This recipe takes the flavors of my Indian Butter Chicken and makes them into a grill rub.
I invited my toddler to make the marinade with me and she had a ton of fun smelling all the spices. It was nice to spend time making something healthy as opposed to the more traditional carb-laden baking our culture tends to do with kids.
This chicken is a nice change of pace from BBQ and all the usual summer grill flavors. This is deliciously different and low carb!
