Frozen Chicken?

I have some chicken sitting in the fridge that is defrosting and probably needs to be cooked as soon as its defrosted in order to not go bad. So I have two questions:

1) What is your favorite seasoning pair for chicken breasts? I usually do salt, pepper, oregano, olive oil, and sometimes a bit of ground cumin.

2) What is the best seasoning/use for chicken that needs to be cooked the same day and didn't have time to be marinated for extended periods of time? I was thinking of using one of those taco mix sauces but am open to suggestions.

I like honey & garlic as a marinate, another good one is orange marmalade & horseradsish.

a middle eastern rub goes well with grilled chicken and doesn't require any marinating time.

grind up 6 or 7 allspice berries, 2 cloves (the medieval weapon looking spice), a pinch of cumin seed, a pinch of fennel seed, a pinch of celery seed.

add 1/2 tsp each of smoked paprika, turmeric, black pepper, powdered or granulated garlic, onion powder, dried herbs de provence, and sea salt.

My favorite is the lemon, rosemary, garlic combo. S&P of course. I like to roast chicken over some sliced potato's. Topped it with a kind of paste / rub of the above spice combo lemon zest and moistened it with some olive oil and the lemon juice. Slather it on the chicken and as the chicken bakes all that yummy flavor seeps down into the potato's.

Sounds delicious. I am missing a few of the spices (allspice berries and cummin seed, fennel seed) so I will have to pick them up. Any recommendations on good/not too expensive online vendors?

Welcome to DC! I like to use whatever barbeque sauce I have on hand. Salsa is nice too. Your taco seasoning would work as well.

Try slathering the chicken pieces with some spicy brown mustard before coating them with a combination of Panko breadcrumbs, grated Parmesan cheese and a few shakes of whatever herbs and spices you enjoy, bake in a hot oven for 25 to 35 minutes.

An easy one is oil based salad dressing like Italian, greek, golden ceasar, etc...I like to make a home made poultry seasoning. Equal parts sage, rosemary, thyme, marjoram, onion powder, savory. Combining any, or all, of those combinations would do fine.

Put the chicken in a ziplock bag, add a generous amount of Walkerswood Jerk seasoning.
Put it in the coldest spot in the fridge for a couple hours. Fire up the grill and crack open your favorite adult beverage. When the grill is hot, plunk the chicken on the well oiled grate and sit back, enjoy the aroma for a spell. Turn the chicken. Get the kids and the old folks to the table, then set down, say Grace and dive in.
