Chicken Paprika

Chicken Paprika Recipe

I am going to perpetuate the black stereotype and tell you all that I LOVE CHICKEN, yes I do. What’s not to love though: they are protein rich, tasty and there are a million and one ways to make them. I often come up with fun ways to cook chicken since it’s a consistent part of my diet. Here is a recipe I am calling CHICKEN Paprika, it is also chicken suya recipe, substitute paprika with Suya Spice.

•    10  chicken pieces
•    1 tspn salt
•    1 tspn black pepper
•    1/2 tspn each (Ginger powder , garlic powder and dried parsley)
•    2 cubes maggi (Bouillon cube)
•    Large oven tray and 2 sheets aluminum foil
•    2 Table spoons Olive oil
•    1 heaped table spoon smoked paprika (Substitute Suya spice for Chicken Suya)
•    In a large bowl, combine all the spices listed in A.
•    Add the chicken into the spices a couple of pieces at a time, combine until well coated. Marinate the chicken overnight in the refrigerator.
•    Set the oven to 325f .
•    In the mean time remove the chicken from the fridge. In a large bowl, combine the paprika and the oil.

•   With a kitchen brush,  lightly brush each chicken piece with the Paprika/oil mixture and place the pieces on the aluminum foil lined oven tray.

•    Bake the chicken for 35mins .

Note: Paprika has a high smoking point, be careful when cooking with it.

    Does the oven have to be in bake or broil?

      Go to the suya spice sellers, ask for the red spice in suya mix.

    Is there a way you can make a print icon so that people can print the recipe out without having to deal with the pictures or running the risk of pouring soup on your laptop. lol
    Looks great! I am definitely trying this!
