How to Store Dry Seasoning Mixes
You can always whip this up every time you make a chicken recipe with it, but I much prefer having extra on hand so I can just grab a jar and sprinkle when needed. That means making larger batches of this chicken seasoning recipe and storing for later.
I have found one of the best methods of mixing together dry spices is to do so in a large bowl before pouring into a container. A whisk tends to help make them blend well without clumps, in my opinion. All you need is a small funnel to pour into containers after blended. There are tons of great ideas for storage, but my preferences are to use old spice bottles, mason jars, or airtight spice jars you can buy in bulk on Amazon.
Note: Don’t forget to label your bottles of seasoning recipes. I prefer chalkboard labels (these jars actually come with the labels) on my bottles so if I reuse later, I can add a different spice to the jar with no worries about peeling a label off again.
Can I change the heat level in this kickin’ chicken seasoning?
Yes! If you like something even spicier – you can easily add more chili powder, cayenne pepper, or any other dried pepper you prefer!
For those that like the idea of a spice blend with heat, but find this to be a bit too much, feel free to reduce the amount of chili powder or mix into something like flour/cornstarch for a coating to make a crispy coating.
