Lemon Paprika Chicken – Marinated in a lemon and paprika mixture with garlic and thyme, these incredible chicken thighs are quick and easy to make, and they are perfect for a weeknight meal.
I’m definitely resisting the urge to add 12 more adjectives to describe this deliciousness!
HI-YA! Happy, Happy Sunday!
♥ MOMS, HAPPY MOTHER’S DAY! ♥
I hope you’re going to be spoiled rotten today! I hope that your dreams about not doing laundry on a Sunday DO come true!
Fingers crossed, I hope you also got a thoughtful gift, or at least something other than a vacuum cleaner or a set of pots and pans.
I myself am hoping for a housekeeper, a nanny, and a trip to the Drake Hotel for brunch.HA!
That’s my RHOBH-influence speaking. But, it would be nice.
And, if you’re ever in my hood, make sure to stop by my Mom’s for her Lemon Pepper Chicken. That’s also ah-may-zing!
Then again, in my opinion, this Lemon PAPRIKA Chicken is a tad bit better! It has that extra oomph. You know?
In honor of Mother’s Day, I shared my Mom’s Sausage and Rice dinner with you guys just a few days back, and now I’m sharing something similar to what she makes, but with my own spin on it.
While my Mom’s Lemon Pepper Chicken is just BE.YOND (it really is, especially if it’s on the grill), I kind of took a different turn and started to reach for the paprika instead. I prepare the chicken all the same, just like she taught me, but adding a bit of my-own to it, ya know?
Even though it seems like this might be kind of boring (I mean it’s chicken. and paprika, and lemon stuff… I know I know….), but what you need to know is that the flavor here is out of this world. Ohhhh the sweet, satisfying bite of that tender, tangy, bit spicy, and garlicky thigh is going to send you over the moon, boo! I’m tellin’ you… it’s incredible. I know, I say that all the time, but chicken just speaks to me. I’ve said it before, if I had to go vegetarian, I’d need chicken to come with me. (Does that even make sense?!? …no…)
So today, if you have no plans for Mom, or if you ARE Mom and no one cooked for you (!!!!!!), grab some chicken thighs, we have a bit of work to do. I promise it’s quick and so easy, you won’t even feel like you spent all your me-time in the kitchen.
But honestly, why are we still talking. I cannot wait until you make this and tell me about it. Please DO tell me!
Enjoy your day, Moms!
Dads, kids, grandpas, etc… make sure Mom enjoys HER day!
