Recipe

Every time I mention we are eating chicken (which is often), the boy asks if I am making paprika chicken. First let’s talk about his rendition of paprika chicken shredded chicken marinated in boatloads of lime and paprika and then fried to an inch of life in about 2 inches of oil. It’s hard, crunchy, and comes with the lovely bonus of covering your entire stove in oily red spatter. Not exactly my idea of dinner. However recently I decided to compromise and try a new version of Lime Paprika Chicken. In this version, the chicken hangs out and marinates with paprika, lime juice, and some other spices before being quickly cooked on the grill or stove-top. It makes a delicious main dish and also tastes great rolled up in tortillas. Let’s be real almost everything tastes better as a taco.
