Healthy Seasonings for Chicken
Here are some of the best global seasonings from across the US, Africa, Asia, the Caribbean, India, the Middle East and the Mediterranean.
18 Spice Chicken Rub:
This blend has a bit of sweetness to it from the demerara sugar and cinnamon. When grilling chicken, the demerara sugar helps form a nice crust to keep the juices in. While a variety of chillies are used in this blend, it only has a mild kick.
Maharajah Curry Powder:
The flavor is earthy, sweet and spicy with citrusy undertones. This is not considered a hot curry powder and is ideal for adding magnificent color and flavor to chicken curries.
This African seasoning is exceptional on roasted or grilled chicken breasts. This is spicy and the aroma is mesmerizing. The secret ingredient which pushes this blend over the top is fenugreek which provides a subtle spiciness.
A Middle Eastern seasoning that is warm with a savory sweetness and a mild subdued heat. Perfect when served on flat bread with an easy to make yogurt sauce.

With a taste of the Caribbean, this blend is savory while packing a bit of heat and sweetness with a noticeable earthiness that includes some citrusy undertones. This blend is loaded with heat.
