This herb-based barbecue chicken rub is the perfect mix for grilling, frying and oven cooking your chicken, turkey and game! It uses a fair amount of paprika and dried herbs which work well with poultry.
Note: I usually recommend using whole spices for my mixes if you have them available. If not, use pre-ground powders but reduce the amount by half. So 1 tablespoon of peppercorns would equal 1½ teaspoons of ground pepper. Reduce any other ingredients you don't have whole by half as well.
What You'll Need: (makes about 12 tablespoons)
4 tbsp paprika powder
3 tbsp dried rosemary
2 tbsp dried marjoram
2 tbsp dried thyme
1 tbsp dried onion flakes
1 tbsp dried garlic flakes
4 tsp black peppercorns
4 tsp mustard seeds
2 tsp brown sugar
2 tsp sea salt
tbsp = tablespoon
tsp = teaspoon
Store your BBQ chicken rub in an airtight jar out of direct sunlight. Use within 3 months before making a fresh mix.
This is the way I do it; if you have your own technique just keep doing that...
Sprinkle fairly thickly on to your bird so it's evenly covered.
Cover and place in the refrigerator for at least a few hours or, better, overnight. The longer it's left, the more the seasoning will soak into the meat.
About an hour before cooking, take it out of the fridge so it can return to room temperature.
