We loved this chicken recipe! Here's what I did (before I forget!). First I bought local free range boneless chicken thighs and pounded to 1/2" thickness. To the marinade I added a pinch of Spanish saffron and decreased the amont of standar paprika and adding 1/2 teaspoon of Spanish smoked paprika. The chicken thighs marinated in the fridge for 24 hours. Pan grilled on each side about five minutes. Garnished with flat leaf parsley, orange slice, more Spanish smoked paprika and variety of imported olives: Spanish, Peruvian, Greek, etc. Really wonderful recipe! Thanks for posting! Our Menu: Spicy Orange Paprika Grilled Chicken, Portuguese Rice, French Bread Baguette served with Maitre D' Hotel Butter, local steamed corn on the cob and green beans, imported olives and manchego cheese.

Great flavorful chicken!!! I made this as one of the three meats for our Labor Day weekend BBQ. I used it on chicken legs, and since we are wimps, cut back just slightly on the cayenne pepper, but it really wasn't necessary as it just provided a nice bit of heat, but not too much. Served this with party bread, Simple Side Dish With Red Skinned Potatoes, cucumber salad and corn on the cob for one fantastic meal. Thanks for sharing the recipe. Made for ZWT8.
Loved this. I grilled one chicken breast for one serving. Simple and good. Thanks bigbadbrenda for a nice meal. Made for ZWT8 - Family Picks.
