If you want impressive depth of flavor and just a touch of heat, Sweet Tweetie is the seasoning blend for you. The aroma is driven by aromatics—bold garlic and sweet onion form the base of the fragrance, with a bit of earthy paprika and the Mediterranean essence of rosemary coming through. The flavor, while sweet, owes its primary appeal to the warmth of brown and yellow mustard, enhanced by bittersweet nutmeg. Rosemary’s herbaceous lilt comes in toward the end, delivering notes of pine and a touch of anise, right before red pepper flakes join in to tie the flavors together with a whimsical hint of heat. We blend our Sweet Tweetie in small batches on site, so we can ensure freshness and flavor in our products.

Chicken breast, with its lean, mild meat, is often compared to a blank canvas. Many of our health-conscious customers like to use our seasonings on low-fat chicken breasts, often stripped of skin and bones. But both skin and bone can add considerable flavor to meat and help it retain moisture. There have been pages and pages written on how to avoid bland, dry chicken, but we recommend keeping the skin on at least during cooking, and buying bone-in meat for extra-juicy flavor. Also, try to avoid buying enormous chicken breasts, since they can be inherently tough and, because they take longer to cook, have a greater tendency to dry out.

 

Tips From Our Kitchen

Sweet Tweetie was designed with grilled chicken in mind, so rub it over chicken and let it sit for about an hour before putting it on the grill. We recommend one tablespoon of rub per pound of meat. This blend would also be delicious on grilled pork chops. Blend this into the meat for turkey burgers, or season turkey legs, brown the sides, and braise for pulled turkey. Sprinkle over chicken breasts and sear under a brick. This would also be delicious tossed over carrots or green beans and roasted, or whisked into a dressing with finely chopped shallots and cider vinegar. That dressing would be lovely on a salads with grilled chicken or shrimp with pecans, or on a hearty, German-style potato salad.

Our Sweet Tweetie seasoning is blended from sugar, garlic, onion, salt, paprika, ginger, mustard, rosemary, pepper flakes, and nutmeg.
