Air Fryer Chicken Dry Rub

This dry rub seasoning has been such a game-changer. It’s been my go-to seasoning for chicken.

It takes plain chicken and gives it a burst of flavor! This dry rub makes prep time so much easier, instead of grabbing all the seasonings one by one. You’ll have it already made.

Can’t agree on seasoning or don’t know what to do? You will always have your handy chicken dry rub seasoning in the pantry to fall back on.

I enjoy making my own seasonings and dressings. I’ve also made Homemade Ranch Seasoning and Homemade Teriyaki Sauce.
