The Trader Joe's Seasoning You Should Be Using On Chicken
By TALIN VARTANIAN
Trader Joe’s is known for its popular signature products, and the grocery chain offers a wide range of seasoning blends for spicing up any meal. There’s one TJ's seasoning in particular that adds an excellent hit of salty flavor and crunchy textural contrast to not only snacks and baked goods, but chicken dishes as well.
The super popular Everything But The Bagel Sesame Seasoning Blend isn’t just for garnishing avocado toast. The combination of poppy seeds, sea salt flakes, sesame seeds, dried onion, and dried garlic blend together to make the perfect unconventional rub for chicken, or add it to breading for a flavorful crunch.
To try using the seasoning blend on chicken thighs, bread the meat with beaten eggs and toasted bread crumbs mixed with the bagel seasoning before baking for 30 minutes at 400 degrees F. You can also simply cover the chicken in the bagel blend before cooking it in a skillet, or use it with other roasted meats.
