With the mild, molasses-y flavor of brown sugar and the warm, welcoming earthiness of paprika, our Kickin’ Chicken dry rub combines old-fashioned, feel-good flavors with a bit of heat. Bold with aromatic garlic and the sweet pungency of onion, this dry rub goes from sugar’s rich sweetness and paprika’s mellow warmth, to the peppery bite of red pepper flakes. Garlic, onion and onion take over the middle ground, bolstered by the pop of salt. This rub finishes with the pleasantly bitter herbaceousness of celery seed. Our Kickin’ Chicken dry rub is blended in small batches in our facility, so we can provide our customers with the freshest and most flavorful product possible.
Paprika is a spice that is nearly universal in spice rubs. Its mild flavor and terrific, eye-catching color make it a desirable ingredient. Domestic paprika that hasn’t been smoked or bred for heat has a gentle flavor and imparts warmth and groundedness, and because it’s so easy on the palate it’s proven itself to be incredibly versatile, and can be used on any kind of meat you can imagine, vegetables, eggs, pasta, and as a final garnish for dips and spreads. Paprika is a staple ingredient in a modern pantry, so it’s no surprise to us that it’s present in so many seasoning blends, particularly if you want to create wide appeal.
