There are dry rubs and paste rubs. Rubs are a blend of seasoning. The blend can vary but generally the blends are coarse pepper (white/black), paprika, garlic powder and variety of herbs. Rubs add flavor, retains moisture (seals juices) and sometimes forms a crust. Paste rubs are held together by moisture (water, oil, soy sauce, Worchester sauce or horseradish) and generally will add a crust to the chicken. Check that rub ingredients are allowed in Paleo Diet Recipes some rubs suggested (soy sauce, Worchester and etc not allow in Paleo Diet).
Marinade Chicken: Marinades help prevent chicken from drying out during cooking and adds flavor. Marinade chicken in the refrigerator. Boneless and skinless chicken pieces marinade quickly from 15 to 120 minutes. Marinating is an ancient art of tenderizing meat and improving flavor. Acids like vinegar or lemon juice are used in marinade tenderizers. Marinades for flavor vary from spicy, sour, sweet & sour, smoky and sour. Ingredients vary with herbs, spices, vegetables, wine, and a wide range of other ingredients. When a marinade is designed as a tenderizer, it includes an acid like vinegar or lemon juice. The acid attacks and softens the fibrous connective tissue between the muscles, making the muscle less stringy. Acid penetration also flavors the meat. The longer meat is marinated the more tender and flavored it becomes.
