8 chicken pieces, skin removed
1 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
1 teaspoon salt
3/4 teaspoon each: dried basil, dried thyme and cayenne pepper
1/2 teaspoon onion powder
1/4 teaspoon black pepper
Preheat oven to 425 degrees F.
Line a 13x9x2-inch pan with aluminum foil. Place chicken in foil-lined pan.
Combine all Seasoning Rub ingredients. Sprinkle and rub seasoning over chicken, turning to coat evenly. Arrange chicken in an even layer in pan.
Bake 35 to 40 minutes or until chicken is cooked through. Spoon juices from bottom of pan over chicken.
The rub on the chicken was simple but wonderfully flavorful. I followed the cooking directions exactly and the chicken was perfectly done. I think this rub would also be good on the chicken with the skin left on if you prefer.
