Homemade Greek Seasoning

A while back I got this wild idea to make "Mediterranean Nachos."  (Look for them in a future post!)  I knew I wanted to top them with lots of yummy, seasoned chicken.  The obvious choice was greek seasoning.  Everyone I know in this part of the country has a bottle of Cavender's Greek Seasoning in their cupboard.  I don't know if it's because it's made in Northwest Arkansas, and maybe that makes it  kind of a regional thing, but around here it's an all-purpose seasoning.  The two quintessential Oklahoma all-purpose seasonings would have to be Cavender's and Tony Chachere's Creole Seasoning.  You folks up North may have your Old Bay, but these two are like salt and pepper in Oklahoma.  I went to season my chicken and horror!  No Cavender's.  Oh the humanity.  Then I remembered the Mr. Devilish Dish took the entire bottle to tailgate to season the hamburgers he was grilling.  I could have made a trip to the store, but that would require putting on a bra and not wearing my pajamas so I decided to whip up my own seasoning instead. I was very pleased with the result.  Great flavor and so fragrant.  Try a sprinkle of this the next time you are cooking chicken breasts.  I still love me some Cavender's, but there's a certain satisfaction involved in creating your own spice blend.  It's easy and your kitchen will smell great!

Whether you're out of your favorite Greek

give this a try.  Oompah!
