Barbecue Chicken Rub

Barbecue Chicken Rub

It will be hard to resist the savoury aroma that hits your nose when you use this spice rub. As it cooks, the brown sugar caramelizes on the chicken to create a crackly skin, and the spices toast to create an irresistible flavour.

Ingredients

  • Serves: 4
  • Prep Time:
  • 1/4 cup (60 mL) brown sugar, packed
  • 2 tbsp (30 mL) chili powder
  • 2 tbsp (30 mL) paprika
  • 1 tbsp (15 mL) cumin, ground
  • 1 tsp (5 mL) cayenne pepper
  • 1 tbsp (15 mL) garlic powder
  • 1 tbsp (15 mL) mustard powder
  • 2 tsp (10 mL) salt
  • 1 tsp (5 mL) pepper
  1. Mix all ingredients.

  2. Store in an airtight container until needed.

  3. Coat chicken generously with rub and roast or grill.

This recipe is for a whole chicken, lower the measurements for chicken pieces. For example, for four chicken legs, use half the recipe. Also, remember to throw away any rub that has come into contact with raw chicken.
