Sold in one ounce increments, our 18 Spice Chicken Rub has a bit of sweetness to it from the demerara sugar and cinnamon. When grilling chicken the demerara sugar helps form a nice crust to keep the juices in. Now while there are a variety of chiles we used (ancho, pasilla, de arbol and cayenne) in this blend it only has a very, very mild kick. Finally you'll note some very gentle hints of licorice from the fennel with some subtle fruitiness from the ancho and cloves.
For best results season your chicken for at least 2-4 hours prior to cooking to allow the seasoning to work its magic (place in the refrigerator and remove 30 minutes prior to cooking). For optimum flavor, season for about 5-10 hours. Use about 1 tablespoon of seasoning per pound of chicken. You can always add more if you feel that it needs a bit more.
Hand blended from ancho, pasilla, cinnamon, ginger, onion, garlic, cumin, sea salt, demerara sugar, mustard, black pepper, coriander, California paprika, cloves, allspice, fennel, cayenne and de arbol.
