Tuscan-Style Chicken and Rub

I found this rub recipe in my Steve Raichlen Grilling cook book. I really liked it but it has a LOT of salt (hence the grilling cookbook). I changed the original recipe a bit, like I always do…ha! This rub can be used on chicken, turkey, pork, and veal. It has great flavor and it can be kept in an air-tight container in the refrigerator for several weeks. Enjoy!

Makes: 6 servings

Here’s what you’ll need:

tuscan chicken and rub 001

2 garlic cloves, minced

2 Tbsp fresh rosemary

2 Tbsp fresh sage

2 tsp black pepper

3 Tbsp kosher salt (or sea salt) adjust salt to your liking

Directions for rub:

In a food processor, add minced garlic, rosemary, sage, and black pepper…

Pulse a few times to finely chop (to break up the stems of the rosemary and sage). Add salt and process to mix…

To make the following chicken recipe, save 1/4 cup of the rub, set aside, and place the remaining rub in a jar with a tight-fitting lid and refrigerate for up to several weeks.
