Offense? Defense? What we love is a utility player. A versatile player. A jack of all trades. One who can seemingly do it all on the football field. That’s how we feel about this spice rub in the YVF Kitchen. It works on so many cuts of chicken, adding a little spice, a little sweet, and a lot of flavour. Try it with skin-on drums or thighs. Give it a go on a whole oven-roasted chicken. And, of course, it’s a great choice for wings as well. Here we present the YVF Kitchen MVP of spice rubs.
Makes approximately 1/2 cup.
2 tbsp brown sugar
2 tbsp paprika
1 tsp smoked paprika
1 tsp garlic powder
1/4 tsp cayenne (increase to 1/2 tsp if you want more heat)
1/2 tsp cinnamon
1 tsp freshly ground black pepper
1 tsp salt
Combine all ingredients and stir well until blended, breaking up any lumps of sugar.
