This is one of those moments when flicking through a recipe book (my Sauces, Rubs and Marinades BBQ Bible) and my eyes landed on a recipe that really sounded awful. So I tried it! The general idea was great, so I tweaked and am now happy to pop it on the family site. It’s been about a year since the last addition… I need to do something about that!
This makes enough for quite a few meals – I like to make things in bulk. It yields about a litre…ish. I’d have to measure more carefully to get an exact yield, and that goes against my cooking mantra.
Just the time it takes to measure, mix and sneeze a lot.
2 packets of Crystal Light lemonade mix (I bought mine from Amazon)
6 TB Herbie’s Chilli Lovers blend (or your favourite chilli powder or blend)
3 TB dried parsley
3 TB garlic powder
3 TB onion powder
2 TB vinegar powder
1½ TB black pepper
1 TB yellow mustard powder
1 TB sweet paprika
1 TB MSG (optional)
3 ts celery seed
3 ts dried marjoram
3 ts dried sage
3 ts driend dill tips
3 ts cumin
1 – Combine all rub ingredients well.
2 – Store until needed.
-Soak chicken pieces in buttermilk for a few hours, then dip in flour, then a light lemonade/cornflour batter and finally a 1:1 mix of rub and breadcrumbs. Deep fry until golden and serve with hot sauce.
-Use as a rub for pork, chicken or beef.
