Sweet Paprika Chicken
I love easy but flavorful recipes. With a toddler on my hands who has been trying to help more and more in the kitchen (which is great and I love it...unless I am pressed for time to get a good meal on the table), simple recipes are a must in my kitchen right now.
This chicken recipe comes together so quickly and can be served with a variety of sides (rice, veggies, potatoes, fresh fruit...the possibilities are endless).
This recipe serves 2-4.
2 TBSP brown sugar, packed
2 TBSP paprika
1 1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp pepper
1 tsp garlic powder
2 extra large (cut in half length wise to make them thinner) or four smaller skinless, boneless chicken breasts
2 TBSP olive oil
In a shallow bowl, combine the brown sugar, paprika, salt, pepper, and garlic powder.
Coat each piece of chicken entirely with the seasoning mixture.
In a large skillet, heat up the olive oil on medium heat.
When the oil and pan is warm, place the chicken breasts on the pan and cook each side for 5-7 minutes until the entire piece is cooked through.
The outside will get a little dark. It is just the sugar caramelizing.
Remove the chicken from the heat and let it rest for 5 minutes.
Slice the chicken into long slices for serving.
