Recipe: Chicken Rub

Dips + Sauces Recipes, Poultry Recipes

By: Chris Freytag, CPT

I love simple and easy! I make my rub ahead of time and store it in these cute spice mason jars you can buy pretty much anywhere. Add a little label with twine and you have a really cute homemade gift! I use this rub mainly on chicken, but it is great on grilled pork chops too. The rub isn’t BBQ, but does have a sweet & slightly spicy flavor.
