This is my homemade chicken seasoning herb blend. It is an aromatic blend of herbs and spices that turns a plain roast chicken pieces into a delicious rotisserie style chicken piece. Simple to make and you control the salt!
We all know I like homemade stuff, I wrote a very ‘homemade’ heavy post when I shared my Old Bay Seasoning with you. You should go and check it out…it is filled with my daily disasters 😉
Seriously it is one of those posts that when I read it back I think. Ha the world must just think I am crazy!!! And it is worth a read as the recipe is used in the most amazing steamed shrimp/prawn recipe. Just thinking about it is making me dribble!!! (Shhhhush! We all do it 😉 )
Anyway, compared to the Old Bay Seasoning this herb blend isn’t packed with disasters. It is a case of measuring out the herbs, putting them in a container and shaking it. Not really a recipe at all 😉
Have you seen the packets of spice blends in the supermarket, often they are a few bucks, contain rice flour, various preservatives, sugar and salt. When I make my own I don’t add salt. I like to salt my chicken separately. Sometimes with a bit of sea salt before it cooks, or perhaps some smoked salt flakes at the end. Once you are in control the possibilities are endless! 🙂
Last week after I mixed up a new batch of this seasoning, I roasted up a double batch of chicken pieces with a couple of extra twists. Roast chicken for dinner and a tray ready to gift to a friend. A few more pics and a recipe coming tomorrow for you.
But this blend is so versatile, it is great mixed into chicken mince for delicious meatballs or burgers. Add some to breadcrumbs to make your own homemade nuggets. Or ignore the chicken completely and sprinkle this over some chopped potatoes and onions before you roast for a super simple and knock out side dish!
What would you add this chicken seasoning too? Let me know, I love to hear from you x
