The simple things in life are sometimes the best things. Today I’m sharing another very simple roasted chicken recipe and it’s simply irresistible. If you are trying to stay fit and healthy, white meat like chicken is one of the many options you can choose from for your protein diet. The year is still very young and the trend at the moment is everyone keeping fit and trying to lose the Christmas weight off.
I love to eat chicken but I’ll never eat the skin. However, when I cook chicken I leave the skin on as one man’s hate is another man’s treasure. Some people crave for the skin; they probably have a very good metabolism. Back to my chicken thigh roast; I marinated the chicken pieces with dried herbs , Olive oil and smoked paprika. I love smoked paprika and I put it in 80% of what I cook. I could get high on the smell alone, it is everything.
