When it comes to adding flavor to a dish, you can’t go wrong with a homemade seasoning mix. This dry spice and herb mix is a wonderful way to season chicken and it’s super quick to make a batch.

This recipe yields enough to season one whole chicken, but it’s super easy to multiply the recipe to make a big batch to have on hand whenever you need.

How to make chicken seasoning

Simply add the ingredients to a small bowl and mix together until well combined.

How to use it

You can rub this spice straight onto a whole chicken or chicken breasts or thighs before cooking. You can also mix with a little oil or melted butter to help to get the chicken skin nice and crispy.

This seasoning rub can be used on beef or pork as well and it’s delicious sprinkled over vegetables before roasting.

How long does it keep?

This spice mix has a pretty good shelf life if you want to make a big batch. Store it in an air tight container in a cool and dark cupboard and it will keep well for up to 6 months depending on the freshness of your ingredients.

Make it to your taste

I use a little cayenne in this seasoning to give it some spice. If you are particularly sensitive to heat you can reduce the amount or omit it completely. Likewise, if you like your chicken on the spicy side, feel free to add in a little extra.
