Chicken Seasoning - Add Fabulous Taste
and Aromas to Your Chicken

With its use of flavourful spices and dried herbs, this easy to make herby homemade chicken seasoning is just the blend for adding fab flavours and mouthwatering aromas to your poultry. It's also versatile enough for use as an all-purpose flavouring for more of your home cooked meals. (See the bottom of the page for links to more of my recipes)

Note: I use whole a couple of whole ingredients in this recipe, but if you don't have these just use their pre-ground versions and reduce the amounts the recipe requires by half. For example, 4 teaspoons of peppercorns equals 2 teaspoons pre-ground pepper. Reduce any others you don't have whole by half as well and stir in with any other powders when making.

Homemade Chicken Seasoning

What You'll Need: (makes about 10 tablespoons)

4 tbsp paprika
3 tbsp dried thyme
2 tbsp dried sage
2 tbsp dried oregano
2 tbsp dried lemon peel
1 tbsp garlic powder
4 tsp black peppercorns
4 tsp cumin seeds
2 tsp onion powder
2 tsp sea salt
2 tsp chili powder
8 dried bay leaves

tbsp = tablespoon
tsp = teaspoon


  • Grind the bay, peppercorns, lemon peel, salt and cumin
  • Add to a bowl
  • Stir in the chili, paprika, garlic and onion powders
  • Finally, crumble in the dried sage, thyme and oregano. Stir again

Store your seasoning for chicken in an airtight jar out of direct sunlight. Use within 3 months.

Note: you could dry toast the cumin and peppercorns prior to grinding. This toasting releases the most fabulous aromas and flavours and is recommended. Click here to read about this easy cooking technique. (Link opens in new window)
