Smoked Paprika 

So what actually is Paprika?

Paprika is made by drying a particular type of sweet pepper, it is then ground to a fine, rich red powder.

So what about the smoked variety? 

Well it’s made from dried pimiento peppers and then smoked over an oak fire Then it’s  ground and milled into fine powder.  

I love this complex flavour and vivid colour and use it quite often in my recipes. 

I love that it’s not ‘hot & spice’ but complex and warm and the smoked note just adds so much to so many recipes 

 

Step by Step too the perfect Paprika Chicken Tray Bake 

Full details on the recipe card below 

Step 1 

Pop your veggies in on a baking sheet or ovenproof  dish like this – add your spices and garlic

Bake in the oven for 15 minutes 

 

Step 2 

Whilst your veggies are roasting prepare your chicken mini fillets 

 

Step 3

What to serve with your paprika chicken 

To be honest I have it just as it is as a light midweek supper,  as it has so many veggies in it! However if you want too stretch it a little further and made a full meal out of it, it’s simple

You can serve with: 

  • Steamed broccoli and peas 
  • A jacket potato maybe 
  • New potatoes 
  • Lovely with brown rice 

It really is so versatile 

I hope you have a try and love it as much as we do
