Make the Seasoning


In a small bowl, combine all of the spices and stir to distribute evenly.

Season the Chicken


Rub the seasoning all over the chicken and lay each piece back in the baking dish.



Bake the chicken at 425 degrees for about 22 minutes.  Use a meat thermometer to check for doneness.
