Opting to use 4 boneless, skinless chicken breast halves, I had dinner on the table faster than Rachael Ray. ;-) Even though I used less meat than called for, I kept the other ingredients roughly the same to give me more sauce since I was serving it over whole wheat pasta. I used sweet Hungarian paprika and the full 1/2 tsp of ground red pepper (cayenne). I am certainly no stranger to Mr. Red Pepper but this heat level was out of my league. On the other hand DH, the man who thinks perspiring while eating dinner is required, thought it was perfect. Since I rule the kitchen, when I make this again, the red pepper amount will be decreased considerably. Thanks for the great, quick recipe!
Made for March, 2008 Aussie/New Zealand Swap. YUMMO!!! This chicken is loaded with flavor. I added a little bit of Mrs. Dash's Hot and Spicy and also added a little bit more water to thin down the sauce some more. This dish is very quick and easy to make and the chicken was very moist and tender. Thanks for another great recipe, Mary.

I have two boys who will usually eat most things I put in front of them. As a single mom I use them as my guinea pigs....sometimes it works, sometimes it doesn't. I have a huge garden, blueberry and blackberry bushes. I am always looking for a new recipe. I have three cats (Xiao Mao, which means little cat in Chinese, Pumpkin and Max) and two border collies, Lucy and Grace. All my animals come from Rescue Agencies. <a href="http://s89.photobucket.com/albums/k217/winecoff8902/?action=view¤t=rsc002.jpg" target="_blank"><img src="http://i89.photobucket.com/albums/k217/winecoff8902/rsc002.jpg" border="0" alt="Photobucket"></a> <a href="http://photobucket.com" target="_blank"><img src="http://i89.photobucket.com/albums/k217/winecoff8902/lucyatpoppys005.jpg" border="0" alt="Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket"><a href="http://s89.photobucket.com/albums/k217/winecoff8902/?action=view¤t=006.jpg" target="_blank"><img src="http://i89.photobucket.com/albums/k217/winecoff8902/006.jpg" border="0" alt="Photobucket"></a><a href="http://s89.photobucket.com/albums/k217/winecoff8902/?action=view¤t=hilfiger001.jpg" target="_blank"><img src="http://i89.photobucket.com/albums/k217/winecoff8902/hilfiger001.jpg" border="0" alt="Photobucket">
