Spanish Paprika Chicken

Serves 4-6
by Tenina Holder

I could call this a one bowl wonder...almost. But it does use a searing hot grill pan...if you wanted to. It is do-able without, but I did like the little grill marks. Somehow grill marks lend an air of authenticity to a dish that would otherwise look, well, frumpy. Serve with steamed rice, crusty bread and heaps and heaps of freshly chopped parsley. (OH, and go and buy the real deal paprika, you won’t regret it, and you won’t go back to Master Foods paprika, ever, ever, ever again.) Enjoy.
