    It sounds like you have made a "rub." Rubs can be dry spices or a thick, damp paste.

    So you can apply the rub, or rub the mixture into the skin.

    If it is more of a sauce, you can brush it on the meat.

    You can also baste the meat with the sauce.

    You can also spoon the mixture over the chicken.

    You can also "coat" the chicken.

    May I suggest that you ensure that the chicken is dead before you begin?
