Garlic Pepper Spice Rub

I was talking about dinner with one of my students on Wednesday. She said she wanted chicken noodle soup. I said I was having leftover carrot soup with chicken legs. Then her face lit up and she asked if I was going to put it on my blog. It makes me smile every time I hear that someone reads my blog. But someone as sweet as miss Kaleigh? awesome. So Kaleigh, HI! This one is for you.

I made this rub up by just throwing things together until it smelled good. I have a good nose for that. It has taken years and lots of failures to get here. Thankfully this time I wrote down my success.

Garlic Pepper Spice Rub

1 tbsp garlic powder

1tsp black pepper

1 tsp oregano

1 tsp onion powder

1tsp chopped onions (dried)

1/2 tsp ginger

1/4 tsp cumin

1/4 tsp caynne

1/4 tsp cardamon

1/4 tsp chili powder

1/8 tsp mace (nutmeg is the same thing but less spicy)

I rubbed this on some chicken legs and then grilled them. We ate this with leftover carrot soup and some grilled zucchini.
