I've been working hard to come up with THE BEST chicken rub. We are selling pasture raised whole chickens this year, and I wanted a really great rub to go with them. This isn't EXACTLY the rub we sell with our chickens, I couldn't quite bottle it up, but it's similar, and allllllllmost as good!
SO tasty! And supporting local with the chicken (The Hobbs Farm), and some of our favourite cinnamon honey (Good Morning Honey). The recipe will work on whole chickens, breasts or thighs. Just slather it on thick, and enjoy the sweet chipotle flavour.
Chicken (your choice of whole, breast, thighs, etc.)
4 tbsp Good Morning Honey cinnamon honey
2 tsp garlic powder
2 tsp sea salt
2 tsp ground pepper
1 tsp dried chives
1 tsp smoked paprika
1 tsp chipotle spice
Take your chicken out of the freezer with plenty of time to thaw.
Preheat oven or smoker. We like to smoke chicken low and slow.
Wash hands, and rub the cinnamon honey on the chicken.
In a bowl add garlic powder, sea salt, ground pepper, dried chives, smoked paprika and chipotle spice. Mix. Sprinkle on chicken. Pat and rub on chicken.
Cook or smoke the chicken in desired way.
Enjoy! Make this amazing chicken rub for all your chicken dishes or support small and purchase your own jar of chicken spice rub.
