Paprika Roasted Chicken Thighs

By Fitnspicy @fitnspicy

Scott is very much a “meat and potatoes” kind of guy, well more the meat. He actually hates baked potatoes. Anyway… I think if he could have a roast or some sort of venison for every meal he would be happy.


Now he does a fantastic job of indulging my love of vegetables and readily goes along with the fact that I only cook meat a few times a week. So when I make a hearty dish like roasted chicken thighs he is pretty happy.


Skin on chicken thighs are key in this dish, they add so much flavor while cooking. But I do take the skin off before eating them. Using smoked paprika adds a nice level of complexity and flavor and these are excellent with sweet potatoes and a veggie rice pilaf. A very typical Midwestern meal
