Smoky Paprika Chicken over Rice

READY IN: 35mins
Recipe by Mrs Goodall

Adopted this recipe because I am loving my new smoky paprika...the original description was the following...A sweet friend in the Canary Islands sent me some wonderful smoky paprika -- and this week, our paper published this great recipe from "Desperation Dinners" with a recommendation to try the smoky version of one of the most overlooked spices. One taste and you'll never see paprika as "just a garnish" again.

This was okay but not great. Followed the recipe, using fresh garlic but this just wasn't a hit. Probably will not make again.
