BBQ Chicken Rub Mix

We're still on a roast chicken kick. I figure we might as well enjoy it while there is still time to cook things in the oven without burning them to a crisp.

I prefer home roasted chicken, but whatever they rub on those birds at the grocery store before they cook them tastes better than what I use... until now!

BBQ Chicken Rub Mix

1 teaspoon paprika
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
1/4 teaspoon pepper
1/4 teaspoon onion powder
1/4 teaspoon oregano
1/8 teaspoon cayenne

What else you'll need

2 tablespoons butter
1 whole chicken or equivalent number of pieces

Combine mix with softened butter and stir until it becomes an even paste. I melt mine and then chill it in the fridge until it's a spreadable consistency. This works for people who keep their butter in the fridge instead of on the table.

Spread rub evenly over the chicken using a knife. This rub works for whole roasting chickens but also any other type of chicken piece, skinned or skinless, baked or cooked on the BBQ.

Cook chicken in whichever way the type requires.

I served my chicken with steamed carrots and baked potato.

The chicken had that delicious rotisserie take out flavor, but without whatever crap they inject into it at the store or restaurant. As with any roasted chicken dinner, it was a happy night in our house.
