This is a super quick spice rub that really packs a punch.
I have baked this in the oven but the chicken barbecues extremely well too, just turn regularly and baste with the remaining marinade.
1.4kg chicken, cut into 12 pieces
75mls olive oil
1 teaspoon paprika
4 teaspoons smoked paprika
1 teaspoon onion powder
1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
4 teaspoons dried oregano
1 teaspoon dried thyme
1/2 teaspoon cayenne pepper
salt and pepper
Combine all of the ingredients in a bowl and allow to marinade for 2-24 hours.
Preheat the oven to 190 degrees Centigrade. Line a baking tray with baking parchment.
Spread the chicken pieces out on the tray with the skin side upwards.
Bake in the oven for 40-45 minutes, baste a couple of times during the baking time.
Remove from the oven and allow to rest for 5-10 minutes before serving.
