½ teaspoon dried thyme
½ teaspoon salt

1. Set the chicken breasts on a cutting board and slice horizontally across the piece to create two thinner halves. One at a time, cover each half with plastic wrap, then use a meat mallet to pound to an even thickness. Drizzle the pounded halves with the olive oil and rub all over.
2. In a small bowl, combine the brown sugar, cumin, garlic powder, onion powder, paprika, thyme, salt, pepper and allspice. Rub the mixture over both sides of each of the four pieces of meat.
3. If cooking on the grill, heat to medium heat. Cook for two minutes per side. If cooking on the stovetop, in a large skillet heat 1 tablespoon of canola oil over medium-high. Cook for two to three minutes per side, or until the chicken reaches an internal temperature of 160 F. Let rest for five minutes.
