These homemade gluten free chicken rubs make dinner time extra easy.



For the Chicken Rub:

  • 1/2 tsp. ground black pepper
  • 1 tsp. sea salt
  • 1 tsp. paprika
  • 2 tsp. dried oregano
  • 2 tsp. dried thyme
  • 1 tsp. garlic powder

For the Mediterranean Rub:

  • 1/2 tsp. coarse sea salt
  • 1/2 tsp. dried oregano
  • 1/4 tsp. dried basil
  • 1/4 tsp. dried parsley
  • 1/4 tsp. onion powder
  • 1/4 tsp. garlic powder
  • 1/4 tsp. ground black pepper
  • 1/4 tsp. dried thyme
  • 1/8 tsp. dried rosemary
  • 1/8 tsp. cinnamon
  • 1/8 tsp. nutmeg

For the Savory Rub:

  • 1 Tbsp. garlic powder
  • 1 Tbsp. onion powder
  • 1 Tbsp. rosemary
  • 1 1/2 tsp. ground sage
  • 1 1/2 tsp. paprika
  • 1  1/2 tsp. sea salt
  • 1 tsp. ground black pepper


  1. Mix all of the ingredients together in a small bowl.
  2. Store any leftovers in an airtight container for future use.


  • I usually grind my dried rosemary in a mortar and pestle to reduce the size of it in these herb mixes.
  • Use the Mediterranean rub on salmon or on roasted or grilled vegetables with some oil. I usually add a little extra sea salt to the vegetables too.
  • The Savory rub is also great on pork.
  • Use the Chicken rub on breasts, thighs or a whole chicken. You can cook the whole chicken on the grill or in a slow cooker with a cup of broth for 3-4 hours on high.
