Spicy Chicken Rub

Sharing is caring!

This Spicy Chicken Rub is a favorite for all the heat loving members in my family.  My youngest daughter created this rub recipe and since then we’ve replicated it so many times.  It’s not a super spicy flavor, more of a warm heat.  So if you like a little bit a spice you can handle it.

This is the dry rub I use for baked chicken.  I use it on chicken and thighs all the time.

It’s such an easy dry rub for chicken.  I will usually triple this recipe and place it in a larger shaker bottle so it’s ready when I need it.

You definitely could use it to make spicy chicken breasts though too.  I’ve never used it on a smoker or the grill yet, but I bet it would be amazing!

To make these chicken thighs, I preheated the oven to 375 – sprinkled the chicken thighs liberally with the spicy rub and then baked for 1 hour.  Such a great weeknight dinner for the family.
