tea rub chickenThis tea rubbed roast chicken the best roast chicken I’ve ever made, and that is not a claim made lightly…

The meat is moist and delicious, the pan sauce otherworldly, and all of the components come together to create a beautiful new flavor. The star is our new Middle Eastern Tea Rub, delightfully balanced with an exotic depth. The blend unites all of the flavors of the dish, while the subtle smokiness of the tea brings the pan sauce to storied heights. Finally, if you have extra room in your pan, go ahead and throw in a few vegetables. We had a sweet potato and a few baby reds on hand.

Much credit is due to my colleague and co-author of World Spice at Home, Julie Kramis Hearne. Her recipe for honey-glazed chicken was the inspiration for this recipe. If you’ve never roasted a chicken in a cast iron skillet, as she suggests, now is the time. It’s the pan that never disappoints.
