I’ve developed a craving for BBQ. I’m searching for the perfect dry rub for slow roasted chicken. When slow roasting chicken, it is done at a lower temperature for a longer period of time. Due to time constraints I cooked this one for two hours at 300F and then turned the oven up to 350F for the last 30 minutes. If I had time for a true slow roasted bird I would have allowed it to cook at 200F until done.
Always check the temperature of poultry, the bird is done when the thigh registers 165F.
- 1/4 cup paprika
- 2 tablespoons garlic powder
- 2 tablespoons minced, dried onion
- 2 teaspoons peppercorns
- 1 teaspoon chili powder
- 2 tablespoons ground cumin
- 3 tablespoons ground coriander
- 1/4 cup kosher salt
- 1/4 cup light brown sugar
Measure all of the ingredients into a food processor. I use the mini one that came with my immersion blender. It’s perfect for small jobs Blend thoroughly until you have a fine powder. Store in an airtight container, yields enough for about 3 chickens.
