A nice simple recipe using smoked paprika. Feel free to use the ordianary sweet Hungarian if you have as much trouble getting smoked paprika as I do.

DW and I found this very tasty. The smoked paprika definitely gave the dish a smokey flavor. I did bake this in the oven to allow me to tend to other things rather than the stove top method. I put it in a 350F oven for 25 minutes.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Mix together the paprika, oil, garlic, basil, salt and cayenne.
  2. Massage this mix into the chicken breasts and allow to stand for about 20 minutes.
  3. Heat a pan over medium heat, and saute on both sides until chicken is golden brown and cooked through-about 8 minutes each side depending on the thickness of your fillets.
  4. Add a little more oil if you need to, though there should be enough from the marinade.
  5. Slice on the diagonal and serve.
