I saved this recipe mostly for the shape of the chicken in it. Chicken Rings – whaaaaat? I was decidedly lazy and didn’t actually make the rings. I was so surprised by how much I LOVED the seasoning mix, that I had to make a single post for it instead of tacking it on to the one where the side was made.
When I was cooking this, it kind of smelled like Indian food. I could not believe how good it was. I am considering mixing some up so I can have it on hand at all times. I might cut the salt down a bit, though, but I am afraid it will thrown off the balance. If you like tasty spicy, but not burn your mouth spicy, make this. I think you would be able to control it with the type of Chili Powder used. I don’t know the difference of the sweet paprika vs smoky paprika, so that might be something that controls the heat, too. I liked it with the sweet paprika just fine. This is a HIGHLY recommended blend. All I know is that I want to go back and finish all of the chicken, but I want it in a salad tomorrow for lunch more. Can you imagine? A salad topped with spicy chicken and ranch……maybe I will have it now 🙂
