It seems like I cook chicken all the time but tend to stick to my favorites so I wanted to try something new. This one was a great addition and extremely easy to make. I marinated my chicken for a few hours but I am sure you could just throw it all together and cook right away and it would be just as good. It was a bit spicy, so if you dont like too much spice then cut back on the cayenne pepper a bit. Otherwise, great chicken dish!!
- 2 lbs organic chicken thighs (I used skinless boneless)
- 2 tbsp paprika
- 1 tbsp garlic powder
- 2 tbsp cayenne pepper
- 1 tsp salt
- zest of one entire lemon
- juice of one lemon
- 1/4 cup olive oil
In a large bowl mix all the dry incredients together well. Add the lemon zest, juice of lemon, and olive oil to create marinade. If its not spicy enough for you, then add more cayenne. It was plenty spicy!
Add your chicken thighs to the mixture and marinate in the fridge for a few hours.
Put into a baking dish and cook at 375 for about 30 minutes or until done! DELISH!
