About Smoked Paprika Chicken

I love smoked paprika, and lately I have became obsessed with it. I'm always looking for a new recipe to try with smoked paprika. Well a while ago a local grocery store came out with a recipe for smoked paprika roasted chicken that I feel in love with. It became a go to recipe for me when I was to busy or just could not think of something to cook, but like all of my favorite recipes I have to change it up or as my husband calls it Brenda it up. It has since become a family favorite in my home, as well as my youngest sons birthday dinner pick. Like with all my recipes there is a ton of ways to make this recipe your own, I want you to play around with it, and let me know what you did below in the comments, and how you liked it. Any other comments or questions are also always welcomed.

What Is Smoked Paprika

Paprika is used in rubs, marinades, stews, chili, and as a garnish ( a lot of people like to top the deviled eggs with it). Depending on the variety of pepper and how it is dried, will determine the color from bright red to brown and the flavor from mild to spicy. All Paprika is made from sweet, or hot peppers that have been dried and ground to a fine powder, but unlike other paprika smoked paprika is dried over wood fires giving it the smoky taste.

For this recipe I like a sweet Smoked Spanish Paprika that has a nice earthy taste made from sweet Spanish peppers. When go to buy your paprika for this recipe you should smell it, as not all paprika are the same you should smell a nice earthy smell along with a dip smoky smell. If you can not smell the smoke then try a deferent brand.
