A great easy recipe. I used two medium sized skinless boneless chicken breasts and baked in the oven for 30 minutes and they came out lovely and moist. I also added some Moroccan spices to the mix.

This tasted great! My kids absolutely loved this chicken and they hardly ever rave about meat dishes. I did use the skinless chicken breasts with bone but next time, I'm going to try drumsticks with the skin off and I'd also like to try boneless breasts as well. This is a keeper for sure. I served these with Roasted Honey Dijon Potatoes. Great meal! Thanks.

This was great and versatile. I used chicken leg quarters and left the skin on. Added some garlic powder to the salt, pepper and paprika mix. Placed a garlic clove under the skin on the chicken for extra flavor. This recipe was very easy and the chicken was moist!
