Delicious and easy to make. Thanks!
This is now my husband’s favorite chicken. He even tells other people about it. The chicken is moist (not usually how my chicken turns out), the sauce flavorful, and you can never have enough sauce. I double up on the sauce.
Amazingly tasty and moist (unheard of in my house – I am a professional at drying out chicken). It was perfect.
I’m so glad you liked it Susan!
Sounds so yummy!!! How would you change this recipe to grill the cichicken instead of roast in the oven?…
Hi, Nancy! Emma here, managing editor. If you want to grill it, I’d recommend spatchcocking it and then following the basic grilling instructions in this post. Enjoy!
We aren’t exclusively vegetarian, but we often cook that way for ourselves or family/friends who are. Smoked paprika is great in chili, beans, or other recipes where you might use bacon or other smoked pork.
For seasoned hamburgers I use this recipe, but swap in smoked paprika for the regular paprika every time.
The taste of grilling, year-round, even when I don’t feel like going outside to grill.
I make a paste with vegetable/sunflower oil & smoked paprika prep a good sized baking potatoe hasselback style, then drizzle/coat the potato with the paste mix. Wrap in foil and bake at 200F for an hour, after part unwrap & baste the potato and bake a further half hour or until done. Divine with soured cream or butter.
What a great idea Lieane!
I used smoked paprika on chicken thighs that I wrap with bacon and roast in the oven. Yum!
I used smoke paprika mixed with Tastefully Simple Garlic-Garlic, salt n pepper. Rinsed and pat dried a whole chicken. Sprinkled paprika mixture inside the chicken and placed a medium onion quartered, fingerling potatoes, & carrots in the cavity. I liberally sprinkled the whole chicken and placed it in the crockpot on high for 6 hrs. What I thought was going to be enough chicken for a couple of meals and lunches for the hubby and I, turns out he so loved it and we had 1 dinner, and “his” lunch! It had wonderful flavor and very moist. (saved the drippings for another dish) . The hubby is now on the hunt for a “larger” crockpot so I can cook “2” chickens instead of one.!
I made this last night and it was sooooo good! It was really juicy and tender. Will definitely be making this again and would like to try it on the grill. I used a whole chicken that was not a roaster chicken, because that’s what I had.
Haven’t read all the comments, so forgive me if this is redundant, but smoked paprika is a go-to spice for barbecue sauce. I’ve also used it in hummus.
I use smoked paprika in my chickpea and chorizo chilli recipe! Love this spice! Will definitely try this chicken recipe it looks delicious thank you:)
I know this is an old post, but if you cook the entire chicken on 450 for about 45 minutes, will the skin crisp up?
If you cook the bird at 450 the whole time I would skip the honey lemon basting (the honey will burn), and yes, then the skin should get more crispy.
Can I use lime instead of lemon?
I use it instead of chili powder when hot stuff is called for, as in chile. Sometimes I add it to homemade popcorn.
Just found smoked paprika at Trader Joes for a $1.99! Used it on some grilled ckicken, but was unsure how else to us it. Glad I happened upon these comments! Thanks!
Hello, I am trying the smoked paprika roast chicken recipe. However, the recipe didn’t state if I am to cover the chicken or if I keep the chicken uncovered, do I put a little water at the bottom of the baking plate?
It’s a roasted chicken, using dry heat, so you do not cover it, nor do you put water in the baking pan. ~Elise
The two Whole Foods stores in DC carry smoked paprika regularly, so I bet this delicious ingredient is going to slowly make its way around the fancier grocery stores.
THIS was SO easy and GOOD! I have made it three times since seeing it in February!
I made this for dinner last night for a group of friends. Everyone loved it. I used a previous commenter’s suggestion and mixed the melted butter with a little olive oil and rubbed that all over the chicken before adding the spicing rub. The 1 hour and 15 minute cook time was perfect. This is a great, easy roast chicken!
