Ingredients

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 325ºF.
  2. Combine paprika, onion and garlic powder, salt, oregano, basil, thyme, black pepper and cayenne pepper in a small bowl.
  3. Combine 3 tablespoons of rub mixture with the brown sugar; set aside. Place remaining rub mixture (about 1/2 cup) in an airtight container to store for future use.
  4. Rinse the chicken and pat dry; place in a shallow pan. Rub oil over all sides of the chicken. Distribute the rub over the chicken, generously coating all surfaces.
  5. Roast for 1-1/2 to 2 hours, until done (juices should run clear and a meat thermometer inserted in thigh should register 180ºF).

Tips

Use rub on ribs, pork chops, turkey breast or even grilled chicken! Serve on a bed of seasoned rice. To make, add 1 teaspoon rub seasoning to the cooking water of 2 cups rice. This will yield 6 cups cooked rice.
