This Chicken Rub is perfect for yielding the crispy skin that you crave from your roast chicken. You could also mix it into your batter for frying chicken, or sprinkle it over thighs for succulent results after braising in white wine or broth. It will enhance even the most ordinary baked or grilled chicken.
Chickens hold a place of importance in many religions and cultures around the world, but the Israelites were the first to raise chickens for food, as far back as 200 to 400 BC. That tradition of eating chicken didn't reach Europe until at least 100 years later, but today it's one of the most popular meats in the world, ubiquitous on tables everywhere due to its light flavour and uniform texture. Fresh and ground herbs pair well with its meat, as well as garlic, lemon, and even wine.
