Chicken Flavor Mastery:
Like many good chicken rubs our18 Spice Chicken Rubhas a bit of sweetness to it from the demerara sugar and cinnamon. When grilling chicken the demerara sugar helps form a nice crust to keep the juices in. While there are a variety of chilies we have used (ancho, pasilla, de arbol and cayenne) in this blend with only a very, very mild kick. Finally you'll note some very gentle hints of licorice from the fennel with some subtle fruitiness from the ancho and cloves.
We're also big believers in salt free seasonings, but sometimes in order to make a good rub become a great rub, you need a dash of salt and this was one of those times. For some of our customers they feel that this chicken rub needs a bit more salt - so if you feel the same way after trying it the first time by all means add a bit more salt to it the second time around.
For best results we like to season our chicken for at least 2-4 hours prior to cooking to allow the seasoning to work its magic (place in the refrigerator and remove 30 minutes prior to cooking). We like to let it season for about 5-10 hours for optimum flavor (perfect when cooking on the weekend). We recommend using about 1 tablespoon of seasoning per pound of chicken. You can always add more if you feel that it needs a bit more.
