Baked Chicken Seasoning

It’s hard to think of a food more versatile than chicken. Not only can it be cooked in all sorts of ways, it lends itself well to all sorts of flavors too! 

One of the easiest ways to prepare chicken is to bake it. It’s a hands-free cooking method that – if done right – produces tender, juicy results.

Other ways of seasoning baked chicken

There are lots of ways of adding flavor to baked chicken, besides using a rub.

You can marinate it – for a healthy option, try using a marinade of chicken broth or seasoned fruit juice and allow the chicken to marinade overnight. 

Keep it simple – add a pop of flavor with simple ingredients like lemon zest, chopped fresh herbs or very finely chopped hot peppers.

Brine it before cooking – dissolve half a cup of salt and half a cup of brown sugar in a gallon of water, then leave the chicken immersed in the mixture overnight. It adds flavor and makes the chicken juicier after cooking.
