How to cook seasoned chicken
Seasoned chicken can be cooked in many different ways like grilling, baking, roasting or air frying.
When cooking with this seasoning, I use about 1 tablespoon per pound of meat. Sprinkle the rub straight on the meat or brush with a little olive oil then season before cooking.
For all cooking methods, be sure that the internal temperature of the chicken reaches at least 165 degrees F.
How to store chicken seasoning
This homemade seasoning mix is best kept in an airtight container or spice jar. Keep in a cool, dry place. Depending on how old your spices were to start, this mix can last about 6 months.
