As a food blogger, I try 2-3 new recipe adaptions a week, sometimes more. I am constantly looking for new recipes to adapt so how the heck did I miss Everything But The Bagel chicken? I knew Trader Joe’s had an Everything But The Bagel seasoning blend and I had even made a homemade Everything Bagel seasoning for some biscuits I made. I never even thought about using it as a rub for meat. Boy, I was missing out.
I found the recipe in a packet that someone posted in my Whole 30 group. I had all the spices I needed to make the seasoning and two chicken thighs that needed to be used up so it was meant to be. I don’t use words like amazing or the best when talking about food very often because I realize that everyone has different tastes. But guys, this Everything But The Bagel chicken was amazing. It was, seriously, some of the best chicken I have had in a long time. Added bonus, it’s super easy. You can have it prepped and in the oven in 5 minutes, that includes mixing the spice blend. Seriously good eats with almost zero effort.
