Spice rub for chicken

Spice rub for chicken

This is an approximation of the spice rub used for the "chicken and waffles" dish at the eG Heartland Gathering 2008.

At the gathering I used a pre-made batch of Barbara Tropp's China Moon Ten-Spice that NancyH brought, plus a lot of additional Szechuan pepper, clove, and coriander. I've adjusted the recipe to account for the most important flavors from the ten-spice.


  • 4 T Szechuan peppercorns
  • 4 T coriander seeds
  • 1 tsp whole cloves
  • 2 T black peppercorns
  • 1 tsp fennel seeds
  • 1/2 tsp cumin seeds
  • 1/2 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp ground ginger
  • 1 T salt

Toast the first six ingredients in a dry skillet over medium heat until fragrant. Dump into a dish to cool, then place in a blender or spice mill and process to a fine powder.

Add the remaining ingredients and mix.
