Very good. Highly recommmended. No changes needed. I baked the chicken after using this rub and letting it sit for a bit, but grilling it would be wonderful as well. I did this recipe as a part of the Western Region's Faceless Frenzy July 2012.
I wish I could do 3.5 stars for this, because I feel it was better than "ok" but I can't say I will make it often. At least not without some changes. Perhaps it was my preparation method. I followed the recipe as written, although I had to omit mustard powder because I didn't have any. I lightly coated boneless chicken breasts in olive oil and then rubbed generously with this spice mixture. It sat in the fridge for a few hours before I baked it. The chicken was fairly moist and the spices were pretty good, but it really felt like it needed something to help it along. I really think this could be greatly improved by doing a yogurt marinade with these spices, or making some kind of tomato-based sauce to go over it. I still have some of this spice mixture left over, I may try one or both of these ideas to see how it turns out. I would also reduce the turmeric by about half as it is not my favorite flavor.
