Chicken Rub

I recenlty posted a very popular recipe for Double D “Fried” Chicken. In it, I call for barbecue rub as one of the ingredients. I have had several requests for which rub I used when I made it. It is my homemade Chicken Rub.

It is really easy to make. Just mix the following together:

  • 10 ml (2 teaspoons) paprika
  • 8 ml (1 1/2 teaspoons) black pepper
  • 8 ml (1 1/2 teaspoons) garlic powder
  • 8 ml (1 1/2 teaspoons) onion powder
  • 5 ml (1 teaspoon) dried rosemary
  • 5 ml (1 teaspoon) dried thyme
  • 3 ml (1/2 teaspoon) kosher salt
  • 2 ml (1/3 teaspoon) dried sage
  • 1 ml (1/4 teaspoon) cayenne

I put them in a spice bottle and shook until mixed.

Of course, you must put it in a fancy bottle with hand caligraphy on the label.

The Verdict

This is a perfect rub for any poultry. It has the salt and paprika to give it a garlic rub taste but leaves out the sweet you want for pork. It gives a nice herb touch which goes great with poultry. Give it a try!
