What a great combination of herbs and spices all perfectly suited for one another! I haven't used this yet but if the aroma is any indication of how it's going to taste on the chicken breasts that are waiting for it we're in for a fine dinner! (I sheepishly confess that I wimped out on the cayenne pepper to be on the safe side and only used half the amount called for) Update: Used this on "Baked Lemon Chicken with Mushroom Sauce " which took this recipe from "blah" to sublime. I know I'm gonna love this stuff. Read More

This spice rub has a lovely flavour but even with 1/3 the salt is way too salty on baked chicken breast! Cut the salt to 1/4 tsp and it would be perfect! Read More

This was AMAZING! The blend of herbs and spices was Right On! I made 60 servings right off to bat and put the mix in an air tight container. I used this on 2 whole chickens and baked in the oven. I figured if some one did not like the taste then I was safe by just pulling off the skin. Everyone liked it. I can't wait to try it on skinless chicken breasts next. Read More

Wonderful! I love finding homemade seasoning blends on this site. They're so easy to scale up and keep in an air tight container for future use. Plus it's stuff I already have but would have never thought to combine and so much cheaper than buying stuff with preservatives in it. Thanks! Read More

Delicious without being overpowering; I placed six chicken breasts in a pyrex baking dish and drizzled them with olive oil. I put the seasoning blend into a shaker and sprinkled the breasts on both sides. Popped them into a 350 degree oven for about 45 minutes and they turned out juicy and very tasty. Great recipe!

I found this searching for "poultry seasoning" and figured chicken=poultry so I could make this work:) I used this as poultry seasoning in "Cornell Chicken Marinade" and like the bit of flavor I was able to detect through the overpowering vinegar taste. I have some left over I'm looking forward to using as a dry rub to let it shine on it's own! Read More

Excellent! You will never have bland chicken again using this recipe! I used it in the "Baked Lemon Chicken with Mushroom Sauce" recipe from this site as well (thanks for the suggestion Naples34102!). It went fantastic in that recipe. I think it would also be great just to rub some chicken breasts with the seasoning and sautee them in some olive oil - add some sides and you've got a great meal! Read More

other than the boullion granules it is an excellent rub to use on chicken to have put on and sealed in a sealer bag for a few hours or overnight before smoking. To eat that evening. Not cured but mmmm mmmmm tasty. thank you. like this rub. and adding the rosemary is a real bonus goes well with pork loin also. minus the granules. the granules are good for the backing or frying. mmmmm chili? mmmm have to try that one. sounds good.
