I don’t know about you, but sometimes I feel stuck when it comes to knowing what spices to use for chicken or vegetables.
But sometimes I want more oomph. I want to say “WOW!” when I eat dinner, and I want something that I could make at a BBQ where guests would say, “That seasoning is DELICIOUS!”
Friends, look no further. This 9-spice mix for chicken is EXACTLY what I’ve been looking for!
9 Spice Mix for Chicken and Vegetables
Aside from the fact that this 9 spice mix is AMAZING, here’s why you should consider making a batch for yourself:
- It’s easy. Measure the ingredients and shake in a jar. That’s it!
- Frugal. Making your own spice blends is WAY more affordable than buying them pre-made.
- Pantry-friendly. You probably have all the spices already in your pantry!
- It’s Different. It tastes nothing like the other spices you’re used to, which makes me love this blend that much more!
- All-purpose. You can use this blend on chicken, pork vegetables, or potatoes… basically whatever you want.
I actually used this mix to pan-fry some chicken for my sister-in-law and her family a few weeks ago and BOTH her and her husband sang praises on the flavor. Her two biggest kids (my nephews) also came in the house – SEPARATELY – and said the chicken was delicious. Even the baby asked for more!
Ingredients for 9 Spice Mix Recipe
As I mentioned, you likely already have all the ingredients for this 9 spice mix recipe. Here’s exactly what you need:
- Garlic powder
- Dried minced onion
- Black pepper
- Dried oregano
- Ground turmeric
- Ground thyme
- Smoked paprika
The only spice you might not have is the smoked paprika, and you have two choices: leave it out, or get the spice.
I HIGHLY recommend getting the spice. It has an amazing smoky flavor that is unmistakable once you taste it, and it always kicks the flavor up a notch.
How to Make this Simple Chicken Seasoning
The steps to make this spice mix recipe is pretty straightforward:
- Measure the spices into a 4-ounce glass jar.
- Seal the jar.
- Shake and use as desired!
I’m a huge fan of batch cooking and cooking once in order to eat twice, so I’ve written this recipe to fill a 4 oz jar, which is enough for 2-3 nights of seasoning. If you want more, double the recipe. If you want less, feel free to halve the recipe.
Can you use these spices for roasted vegetables?
I know I refer to make chicken often, but I use this spice mix for vegetables too! I’ve tried them roasted, grilled and sautéed and they’re ALL so good!!
