Grilled Chili-Rubbed Turkey Breast

2 t. chili powder
2 t. salt
2 t. packed brown sugar
1 t. cumin
1/2 t. paprika
1/2 t. garlic powder
1 half turkey breast (2 1/2-to-3-lbs.)
Combine all rub ingredients in a small bowl. Spread rub over the breast, loosening the skin with your fingers and getting rub onto the flesh as well.

Heat grill and, if using a gas grill, turn off the heat over the center burner. Place turkey breast on center cool spot of grill, cover and adjust heat to about 325 to 350 degrees. Cook until an instant-read thermometer reads 160 to 170 degrees, about an hour to 1 1/4 hours. Or do what Mom did and roast this in a 325 degree oven in a baking pan.

Servings: 5
5 Poodles for 2 thick slices

If you opt for a whole breast, which is a good option for a family or for a week of quick meals, use the following measurements:

1 T. chili powder
1 T. salt
1 T. packed brown sugar
2 t. cumin
1 t. paprika
1 t. garlic powder
1 whole turkey breast (5 1/2 to 6 lbs.)

A whole breast serves 10.
