Grilled chicken seasoning makes the chicken so tasty and it hits all those pleasure centers of the brain. But! It has to be just the right blend of flavors.
Grilled Chicken Seasoning
There is a spice that is little known here in the USA called Chicken Salt. Chicken Salt is an accidental blend of herbs and spices that someone created in Australia as a grilled chicken seasoning. It has taken the country by storm. Rumor has it that it is now almost impossible to buy any French fries or grilled chicken that isn’t loaded with Chicken Salt. Why? Because it is just that good. Except for those Australians who are completely over it. They are a bit annoyed.
So, what’s up with Chicken Salt? Why is it so good?
Chicken salt is a mix of paprika, salt, onion, garlic, pepper and celery salt. However, there is one magic ingredient: Unami. Unami is one of the savory groups of spices that is so satisfying. Unami flavor is glutamate and can be found naturally in the wild in foods like parmesan cheese, tomatoes, mushrooms and cured meats. But how can you capture that flavor and get it onto your grilled chicken?
Well, one way is MSG. Yeah, everyone is still a little ticked off with the whole MSG thing. But, it isn’t a natural Unami flavor anyway, it is merely a recreation.
So, to create your own version of Chicken Salt, complete with natural Unami flavor, you can do a little engineering. Put a ½ cup of tomato sauce in a bowl and add 3 tablespoons of minced mushrooms and 3 tablespoons of Worcestershire Sauce. Add in 3 tablespoons of Seasonest Original Seasoning Blend then blend it with a hand blender to turn it into a nice, thick sauce.
Allow your blended sauce to sit in the refrigerator for at least one day so the flavors meld.
About 15 minutes before your chicken is finished cooking on the grill, smear a thick layer of this grilled chicken seasoning version of Chicken Salt on your chicken. Let the seasoning bake in and caramelize on each side of the chicken then promptly serve. A little squeeze of lime on top is so much the better.
