Roasted Chicken Rub Spice Mix
My chicken rub spice mix combines all my favorite, bold spices into one delicious rub for chicken! If you’ve got these ingredients in your spice cabinet, you’ll want to mix some up right away! 🙂
This rub spice mix can also be rubbed onto zucchini slices, potatoes, or whatever other vegetables you like to roast. Those bold spices really enhance roasted vegetables!
In our home, we eat chicken pretty frequently. (If you’ve seen some of our other chicken posts, 10 Reasons Why I Have Cooked Chicken in My Freezer, Copycat Chick Fil A Grilled Chicken Smokehouse BBQ Bacon Sandwich, Creamy Chicken Salad Croissants, Skillet Chicken Fajita Rice, ….ok you get it, we like chicken. :-))
I like to try lots of different chicken recipes, but this spice rub on a flat-roasted whole chicken is our favorite! (We also flat-roast whole chickens on the grill – that is an amazing experience, let me tell you!) 😉
The thing is, when you “rub” a chicken with a spice mix, it’s like it’s sealing the juices in, and in turn you get a moist, delicious, flavorful piece of chicken!
This roasted chicken spice rub mix is a cinch to mix up, and you probably already have the spices on hand.
What you’ll need is sweet paprika (THIS is what makes it, I do believe), garlic powder, pepper, dry mustard, oregano, and salt.
Look at all those beautiful, warm, fragrant spices — so delicious!
Oh, and of course you can use this on pork as well. We don’t eat a lot of pork steaks, but I want to get some to put this spice rub on when we’re grilling this summer! Mm, I’m sure it will be so tasty!
Just mix it up until it looks like there aren’t any clumps in it, then rub it on your meat. I drizzle a little olive oil on after the spice rub is rubbed in….and then lightly massage it in.
