Seasoning- My go-to chicken seasoning blend is smoked paprika, oregano, garlic powder, salt, and pepper.
You can also use pre-made seasoning mixes like cajun seasoning, Italian seasoning, BBQ rub, or poultry seasoning.
Olive Oil- You will need to coat the chicken in oil to help it stay juicy, develop some color, and help the spices stick to the chicken.
