We eat chicken quite often at our house so we’re always experimenting with different ways to prepare this versatile and delicious meat. Sometimes we eat chicken that has been marinated and grilled, or coated with a breading and baked. Other times we might do a quick sautéed chicken. Or – if time allows – we even have this slow-cooker chicken recipe in our collection! But one of our favorite recipes is baked chicken made with this Spice Rub for Chicken!
Our spice rub for chicken is a delicious option for when you’re preparing skin-on roasted chicken. You can use this spice rub on a whole roasted chicken, as well as on individual chicken pieces. We’ve also used this spice rub on our Bourbon Spice Barbecue Chicken Wings!
It’s a blend of seasonings that you likely already have in your kitchen spice cabinet – including brown sugar, paprika, salt and pepper, coriander, garlic and onion powders plus other seasonings. The combination of flavors is a little bit zesty, a little bit salty and a little bit sweet! (Just perfect with chicken!)
Simply mix up a batch of this spice rub for chicken and store it in an air tight container. We predict you’ll be reaching for this delicious spice rub for chicken again and again!
