My Chicken Spice Blend

August 30, 2011 – 5:12 pm

We picked up a big pack of skinless boneless chicken thighs at Costco and have been working our way through them. Saturday night, I made some stir fry with shiitake mushrooms, zucchini, and yellow bell pepper, very similar to this one. Monday night I made some chicken noodle soup. Tonight, I mixed up a spice blend and baked some of the thighs over a bed of thinly sliced summer squash for about 30 minutes at 375 degrees F. The mix is one I often use with chicken, and it works well on pork and vegetables as well.

My Chicken Spice Blend
Makes about 2 tbsp, enough to season 1 lb chicken

1 tbsp kosher salt
1/2 tsp black pepper
1 tsp dried thyme leaves
1/8 tsp garlic powder
1/8 tsp onion powder
a hearty dash of cayenne pepper

Mix all spices in a bowl to combine. Use to season chicken, pork, or veggies as desired.
