Have you ever taken chicken out of the freezer to thaw and wondered what the heck to do with it? I mean, there are SO many things you can do with chicken, but sometimes, you just aren’t feeling the creativity. You just want to bake the chicken and eat the chicken. Right? Or is that just me?
Sometimes I just need. . .easy. Don’t you, too? That’s when I bring out this Chicken Dry Rub. It’s a mixture of several different seasonings that when combined, just sing. And all I need to do, is. . .well, rub it on. I actually found this recipe on Food.com awhile ago and just had to try it out. Let me tell you what. It’s a winner.
I use this chicken rub for chicken breasts, chicken parts and whole chickens. You can use it when roasting chicken or baking chicken. If you have a turkey fryer or air fryer, this rub is a perfect complement. You end up with a super moist chicken that has a crispy, flavorful crust.
In fact, we use this rub most often when we’re using our turkey or air fryer. Even with the cayenne pepper, it’s not spicy. It’s perfect for even the little ones in the family.
It just makes preparing chicken so easy. . .and delicious. The recipe makes quite a bit, so I always put mine in a shaker bottle. The shaker bottle also makes it super easy to sprinkle on the chicken. Be generous with the rub. It’s so flavorful; so good.
Our entire family loves this recipe and I hope you do, too! Let me know in the comments if you try it!
