Turn Seasoning into a Powder

Sometimes we want a finer seasoning to coat the chicken. When we do, we use a spice grinder to pulse the seasoning for a few seconds and it turns it into a fine almost dust-like seasoning that is perfect for coating a whole chicken, but also for using on chicken breasts or thighs.

Using Rotisserie Chicken Seasoning

A sprinkle of this seasoning is perfect on a whole chicken. To get the seasoning to stick to the chicken, a little olive oil can be rubbed on the chicken, which will also help make the skin crispy.

But there are other ways to use this seasoning. It can be used on chicken breasts and thighs as well. We have even sprinkled a little on wings before grilling them.

Add a couple of tablespoons of this seasoning to bread crumbs to make a coating for fried chicken. Doing this is similar to making a homemade Shake n Bake.

Can This Recipe Be Made In A Large Batch?

Definitely and we recommend it! We usually make this in large batches, enough to fill a mason jar or two.

It is a great seasoning to have on hand. And it will last in a mason jar for up to 6 months in a cool dry space.
