Easy Paprika Chicken

READY IN: 35mins
Recipe by mary winecoff

This makes a great weekday meal. Serve over rice or noodles. I use a whole chicken cut up into pieces when I make this but I am sure that your favorite pieces could be substituted.

This really is a nice recipe and I enjoyed that it was stovetop with a reduced cooking time. (It is HOT here.) After reading the other reviews I did reduce the cayenne by half and thought it was plenty. Made for ZWT4.
