Spice Rubbed Chicken

Using basic spices from your pantry, this spice rub totally transforms the humble chicken thigh adding a smokey, zesty, lightly charred taste . So much flavor packed into the leanest of meat and on the table in just minutes, this recipe is one of my favorites.

Recipe Notes

You can make extra spice rub to have on hand in the pantry as it will keep indefinitely.

I recommend cooking the chicken outdoors as there will be smoke (hopefully not fire ๐Ÿ˜Šย  ) ย
