Chicken Seasoning Ingredients
HERBS: Rosemary, parsley, thyme, and basil are the dried leaves from a plant. Each has a different flavor profile that enhances the complexity of the seasoning. Garlic, although generally classified as an aromatic, adds that unique flavor that only it can!
MILD SPICE: Paprika, with its spicy or sweet flavor, is made from hot or sweet peppers. Its red hue adds a splash of color to the chicken. Mustard also ranges from sweet to spicy, just be sure to use the dry mustard powder (not the condiment).

Chicken Seasoning Ideas
As the title of this recipe suggests, the best use for this seasoning blend is with chicken. Try adding it to fried crispy chicken wings, baked chicken meatballs, or sprinkle it over a butterflied chicken. For a Mexican inspired night use it for chicken taco bites or some chicken fajitas. It also adds delicious flavor to grilled chicken breasts.
Easy Storage Solutions
Keep all spices and herbs in a cool, dark place. Sunlight causes them to fade and lose potency, while damp conditions can cause mold. So if containers are on display, use dark and airtight containers. However, containers kept in the cupboard can be clear or light colored with an airtight lid. In this case, a mason jar will work or a container that has a shaker lid.
