Holy Moly Chicken Rub and Grilled Sweet Potatoes

Another one from the "I'm not sure when" pile. It's my last--thanks for bearing with my while I tie up these loose ends!!

Holy Moly Chicken Rub

1 T cocoa powder
2 tsp. cayenne pepper
1 t. paprika
1 tsp. cumin
1/2 tsp. salt
1 tsp. pepper
2 tsp. chili powder

Mix all ingredients in bowl. Rub generous handful on both sides of chicken. Cover coated chicken and let sit at least 30 minutes before cooking.

We grilled them and it was great--I thought this blend of spices would compliment these grilled sweet potatoes nicely--and I was right!

Grilled Sweet Potatoes

1 1/2 pounds sweet potatoes, peeled and sliced crosswise into 1/4"-thick slices
2 tsp. olive oil
1 tsp. garlic powder
1 tsp. paprika
1/4 tsp. salt, plus more to taste
ground black pepper to taste

Preheat grill to high heat. Place potato slices in a large glass or plastic mixing bowl. Drizzle with olive oil then sprinkle with garlic powder, paprika, salt, and pepper. Toss well to combine.

Transfer potato slices to grill and reduce heat to low (or place them away from direct heat). Cook potatoes until browned in spots and tender, 6-8 minutes per side. Serve immediately.
