    When ready to grill, lightly sprinkle 1 side of each chicken breast half with 1/8 teaspoon of the pepper blend. Place chicken, peppered side down, on gas grill over medium heat or on charcoal grill 4 to 6 inches from medium coals. Cook 5 minutes. Lightly sprinkle chicken with remaining pepper blend; turn chicken. Cook an additional 3 to 5 minutes or until chicken is fork-tender and juices run clear.
