Tay’s Chick Rub – Tay’s Sweet Honey BBQ Recipe, as well. KILLER COMBO!

tayschickrubseason

Season over makes, for few uses! Try over Fries. Potato Skins. Chicken. Etc. Great for indoor cooking or Grilling!

Rub/Season:
1T Chili Powder
1tsp Brown Sugar (Optional. Depending on use.)
1/4tsp Sea Salt
1/2tsp Black Pepper
1/2tsp Mustard Powder
1/2tsp Cumin
1tsp Garlic Powder
1tsp Onion Powder
1tsp Paprika
1/8tsp Cayenne
1/2tsp Fresh Lemon Peel
1 Chicken Broth Cube, crushed to powder*
1/8tsp Celery Seed

White Vinegar (Depending on how cooking)

Flour (Depending on how cooking)
Extra Virgin Olive Oil (Depending on how cooking)

Use Rub any way you’d like. For this particular recipe, I BAKED Chicken Legs. So, I:
REMOVED SKIN FROM LEGS (Easier to do when Partial Frozen!).
I Marinaded in Ziploc Bag: 6 Legs + 1/2T White Vinegar + 1-2T Chicken Rub (I skipped Brown Sugar for this particular recipe). Marinade 20min.
Add 1/2T Olive Oil to bag, toss around. Sprinkle in half of 1/2T Flour in the bag, toss. Add other half, toss. Set in fridge for about 20 minutes.
Butter Flavor Cooking Spray baking pan. Bake, uncovered, at about 425-450 for 18minutes, flip, bake another 12-18minutes, or til juices run clear.
I tossed cooked Chicken with Tay’s Sweet Honey BBQ Sauce (Recipe below)!

If Grilling: Marinade 1hr. in Ziploc Bag: 6 Legs + 1/2T White Vinegar + 1-2T Chicken Rub. Grill. Eat alone, or, Optional, to toss with Sauce (BBQ, Buffalo, etc.)
Also, try the Rub Recipe for Tay’s Loaded Taters!

NOTES: Brown Sugar: If I’m doing a BBQ Chicken, or Sauce Toss, I skip Brown Sugar. Usually only use if just doing Season with Oil/Butter. Also, USE the crushed Chicken Broth Cube. Lots of famous seasons contain Meat Flavoring/etc. It’s GREAT!

Tay’s RedHead FlatBread

flatbreadbuns
swissmushroomburger
pestochickpeazza
tttflatbreadpizza
1c + 3/4c All Purpose Flour
1 pkg. ACTIVE Yeast
1/2tsp Sugar
a smidge shy of 1tsp Salt
1tsp Dried Thyme, crushed some
1/2tsp Cumin
3/4c Warm Water
1tsp Extra Virgin Olive Oil

In a bowl, add Flour, Yeast, Sugar, Salt, Thyme, and Cumin. With a hand blender, I blended some.
I microwaved Water to a nice warmth. Slowly pour in Water. Knead with PALM (Fold dough, press, fold, press, etc.) to a nice smoothness.
risingdough

RISING TECHNIQUE! My house is not warm enough (Warmth aides in rising), so:
IN A SEPARATE bowl, I add an inch or 2 of Microwaved Hot (Not too HOT!) Water, I take ANOTHER BOWL and LIGHTLY brush with Olive Oil. Set the Dough into the bowl brushed with Olive Oil. SET THAT BOWL on top of the microwaved water bowl (This keeps the dough warm, rises PERFECTLY!). Cover with a Dampened Paper Towel or Rag (I dampen with warm water).
Allow to rise 1 hour. Some people press it smaller after rising, I don’t I just:
Cut off what’s needed, stretch or quick roll to size.
I Butter Flavor Cooking Spray a pan, Bake at 425 for about 10-13 minutes (Pizzas, Flat Tacos, Buns).
You can also cook in a skillet. Once it bubbles nicely, flip (Be sure it doesn’t burn)(Flatbreads, Pita types).
Great for Pizza Crust (We bake in Oven). Flatbreads (We cook on skillet). Burger Buns (We bake). Also, great for dipping in Hummus… Etc.

NOTES: We were going to add in Oregano. But, with having toppings that already contained Oregano, we skipped. Up to you. We would have done 1/2 – 1tsp.
