Seasoning For Chicken - Awesome Flavours
For Your Grilled or Fried Chicken

Whether you're oven cooking, grilling or frying your bird, a homemade seasoning for chicken is just the thing for adding awesome flavours and mouthwatering aromas however you prefer to cook it. And this flavour-packed blend of herbs and spices can be made in literally minutes. (See the bottom of the page for links to more of my recipes)

Note: I use whole peppercorns in this recipe, but if you don't have them just use ground pepper and cut the amount in the recipe by half. So instead of 1 tablespoon of whole peppercorns you would use about 2 teaspoons of ground pepper and stir in with the other powders when making.

Recipe For Chicken Seasoning

What You'll Need: (makes about 6-7 tablespoons)

2 tbsp smoked paprika (or regular paprika)
2 tbsp dried sage
2 tbsp dried rosemary
1 tbsp dried basil
4 tsp black peppercorns

2 tsp garlic powder
2 tsp sea salt
2 tsp cayenne pepper

tbsp = tablespoon

  • Grind the salt, peppercorns and rosemary
  • Add to a bowl
  • Stir in the paprika, onion, cayenne and garlic powders
  • Finally, crumble in the sage and basil and stir again

Store this chicken seasoning in an airtight jar out of direct sunlight. Use within 3 months before making more.
