  1. Stir together all ingredients. Use about 1 tablespoon of rub per pound of chicken, or 1 teaspoon for each 4- to 6-ounce thigh or skinless boneless breast. Sprinkle the mixture over the meat and gently massage it in with your fingers. Let it sit for a few minutes, or cover and refrigerate chicken breasts or thighs for up to 4 hours and bone-in chicken pieces up to overnight. Store leftover rub in an airtight jar for up to 2 months.
