spices in jars

There's a big shaker of Magic Dust next to the salt and pepper in my own kitchen and at all my restaurants. I wish I could figure out a way to attach the bottle to the restaurant tables because, at my restaurants, it's the most frequently stolen item!

To make it a little more hot and spicy, increase the mustard powder and black pepper to 1/4 cup each.

Prep Time: 15 minutes

Cook Time: 15 minutes

Total Time: 30 minutes

Yield: Makes about 2 cups

Ingredients:

  • 1/2 cup paprika
  • 1/4 cup kosher salt, finely ground
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 2 tablespoons mustard powder
  • 1/4 cup chili powder
  • 1/4 cup ground cumin
  • 2 tablespoons ground black pepper
  • 1/4 cup granulated garlic
  • 2 tablespoons cayenne

Preparation:

Mix all ingredients and store in a tightly covered container. You'll want to keep some in a shaker next to the grill or stove. Keeps indefinitely but won't last long.

The PERFECT Chicken Rub, Member kranzmonkey

I love this recipe! Chicken always comes out so moist on the inside and its absolutely delicious. Every single person who tries it forces me to make a batch for them to take home as well. What can I say? It's magic!
