I used garlic powder/onion powder instead of garlic salt/onion and I increased the amount of those AND the basil to a full teaspoon. Great on chicken. Read More

Great rub! I used this on 5 large boneless chicken breasts and marinated overnight in the rub. I then placed chicken the crockpot the next day and cooked on low for about 6-8 hours. Shredded the chicken and added Sweet Baby Rays BBQ sauce and had pulled chicken sandwiches served with slaw. Delicious! Read More

Very nice rub with good flavor. I used this on a whole chicken and it helped keep the chicken moist and gave it a nice taste to the skin. Read More

I put this on chicken tenders and baked in the oven. My house smelled fantastic! I basted the tenders with barbeque sauce right before serving. I made the recipe as written minus the meat tenderizer because I didn't have any. Very, very good! Read More
