dietary profile: Gluten Free

Our Paprika Garlic Fusion is inspired by Texas-style BBQ. That means it’s used like a traditional dry rub – oil the chicken and rub in the Fusion and let it infuse at room temperature for an hour before throwing it on the grill or in the smoker. If you don’t have a grill or smoker, we’ll tell you how to modify the cooking to make smoky BBQ chicken with a kick right in your oven.

Ingredients

Makes 4 servings

4 bone-in chicken breasts (We prefer them with skin for the fullest flavor, but other cuts are fine too)
4 Tbsp Everett’s Paprika Garlic Fusion
4 Tbsp olive oil

Optional:
1 tsp liquid smoke
BBQ sauce to taste

Method

For grilling or smoking:

  1. Rinse the chicken with clean running water and pat dry.
  2. In a large bowl, mix the Fusion and olive oil into a paste.
  3. Roll the chicken pieces in the paste to thoroughly coat them. Let them sit a room temperature for about an hour before cooking to allow the chicken to marinate and absorb the flavors.
  4. Grill or smoke the chicken using your manufacturer’s instructions for about for about 20 minutes or until the meat thermometer reads 165 F. (We prefer meat thermometers that can stay in the oven so you don’t have to keep opening the smoker.)
  5. Optionally, brush on BBQ sauce and grill over the direct heat for another 5 minutes.
  6. Serve with BBQ sauce on the side if you’d like

For cooking in your oven:

  1. Rinse the chicken with clean running water and pat dry.
  2. In a large bowl, mix the Fusion and olive oil into a paste. Mix the paste with the optional liquid smoke if you’d like hot off the grill flavor. 
  3. Roll the chicken pieces in the paste to thoroughly coat them. Let them sit a room temperature for about an hour before cooking to allow the chicken to marinate and absorb the flavors.
  4. Preheat the oven to 375.
  5. Bake for about 25-35 minutes or until the meat thermometer reads 165 F. (We prefer meat thermometers that can stay in the oven so you don’t have to keep opening the oven door.)
  6. Optionally, brush on BBQ sauce and bake for another 5 minutes.
  7. Serve with BBQ sauce on the side if you’d like.
