10 Reviews for Smoky Paprika Chicken
Made this for tonight's dinner. I made some minor changes. I used 1/2 a tablespoon of paprika for the non spicy lovers, and i used sea salt to make it sodium free, and heart healthy. My husband has high blood pressure so i do most of my cooking with sea salt. It was tasty and full of flavor, even with the minor changes I made.

I made this last night on a whim hoping it would good...it was outstanding and the flavor was great! Maybe I just have a well balanced palette for flavors...but I could taste each of the ingredients with every bite!

Seasoning was just okay, nothing to get excited about.
Just okay,

Tried this dish yesterday with my husband. The chicken was not bad, had a hickory flavor from the grill. My husband, a picky eater, liked it okay. Next time, I think I will cook it in a pan.

We made this dish with Drumsticks instead. It was really good, all the flavors blend very well. We also used a pan (no grill) with a little drizzle of Olive Oil. Last, we let the chicken soak in Red Cooking Wine (Pompeian/Marsala) and it added a extra kick to the flavor, it helped to stick the rubbing on the chicken.
