This morning, I made 3 Chicken Pot Pies. As I surfed the web searching for which spices to use I was surprised not to find any.
So, I decided to search further, I can across several spice mixes on this site, www.allrecipes.ca . I've often cunsulted this cooking site in the past and find they have great recipes.
Naturally I found what I was looking for, "Mélange d'épices pour poulet" or if you prefer, Spice Mix for Chicken. There are also several other spice mixes. I prefer by far to make my own mix than to buy ready and often too salty made spice mixes.
I slightly modified it to make it a bit less salty to my taste.
1.5 tsp of sea salt
1 tsp of dry basil
1 tsp of dry rosemarry
1/2 tsp of garlic powder
1/2 tsp of mustard powder
1/2 tsp of paprika (I used smoked)
1/2 tsp of black pepper
1/2 tsp of thyme
1/4 tsp of celery seeds (I didn't have any)
1/4 tsp of dried parsley (I used 2 tbsp fresh)
1/8 tsp of cumin
1/8 tsp of Cayenne
1/8 tsp of powdered chicken base (didn't use too salty)
Mix well and keep in a tight spice jar. Gives about 5-6 tbsp in all.
The Rosemarry is the one we taste the most, reduce to half quantity if you don't like Rosemarry.
I would rub a chicken breast (no skin) with this. I would stuff it under the skin of a chicken. I used it in my Pot Pie mix this morning.
