Easy and made from spices and herbs you probably already have on hand, this Grilled Chicken Seasoning turns boring chicken into something special.



  • 1 tablespoon dried thyme
  • 1 tablespoon dried oregano
  • 1 tablespoon ground cumin
  • 1 tablespoon paprika
  • 1 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon pepper
  • 3 lbs boneless, skinless chicken (I like to use thighs)


  1. In a small bowl, combine the thyme, oregano, cumin, paprika, onion powder, salt and pepper.
  2. Lay the chicken on a large plate or baking dish and sprinkle seasoning on both sides, covering completely. Transfer to a ziplock bag.
  3. Refrigerate the chicken for at least 1 hour, but preferably 4 hours.
  4. Preheat the grill to medium-high.
  5. Grill the chicken until it reaches 165ºF, turning a few times, if desired.
