I took the reins and did some chicken breasts tonight... I'm not a huge fan of chicken... usually I either marinate the crap out of them in Italian dressing, or I build up a candy coating of teriyaki on them while barbequing... decided to go in a different direction this time, and mix up a rub... I went with:
4 tsps chili powder
4 tsps paprika
2 tsps cumin
2/3 tsp cayenne pepper
2 tsp garlic powder
2 tsp mustard seeds (ground)
1 tsp lemon pepper
should do about... oh... 4 breasts. Was pretty good, different than my normal "spices up front" way of cooking... nice and subdued.
For the paprika, I had some really nice Hungarian stuff from Folklorama's
For the mustard, since I don't have a mortar and pestle, I just crack mustard seeds between a folded sheet of parchment with a marble rolling pin.
And why is it all in teaspoons? Easy, one measuring spoon to wash.
