Sure did love this rub on my whole chicken, baked in the oven. It was so delicious! Next time it will be wing night.

I used this on chicken wings and we couldn't eat them fast enough! I am going to use it for pork chops next.

My hubby and I love wings so I was looking for a new rub to use on some. This one was a winner with the both of us. Made a delicious wingfest for us!
