Spice up the flavor of your chicken recipes with this amazing Chicken Seasoning Blend and say bye-bye to bland chicken for forever and ever! Featuring a mix of smoky and sweet spices, with a dash of dried herbs, this chicken seasoning adds loads of flavor with very little work.

This particular blend is my absolute go-to, and it’s good on everything, not just chicken. From pork to fish, and even potatoes, it will kick up the flavors by several notches no matter what you use it on.

  1. Question: how much sodium? which salt do you use? It came to my attention that they all have different sodium levels per 1/4 teaspoon. One can come out too salty tasting while the other not enough.

    Sodium level per 1/4 teaspoon:
    420 mg Himalayan pink salt
    458 mg Celtic Sea salt
    550 mg La Baleine sea salt
    590 mg iodized salt Diamond Crystal

    1. Hi!
      The salt in the listed ingredients is always simple table salt. If I used say, Himalayan, I would make sure to write that out as Himalayan.
