Chicken is a favourite in our household, mainly because of it’s versatility. You can just do so much with it!

This week’s recipe uses chicken breast – it’s lean, and when cooked correctly can be incredibly tender and juicy.

Here’s my recipe for sweet paprika chicken.


6 x chicken breast

1 tbsp olive oil

1 tsp salt

1 tsp pepper

1 tsp sweet paprika

1 tsp garlic powder


Preheat oven to 220C. Place chicken breast in a large baking dish and brush with olive oil on all sides.

In a separate bowl, combine salt, pepper, paprika and garlic powder, then sprinkle over the chicken breast.

Cook in the oven for 15-20 minutes until the chicken is cooked through.

Remove from the oven and let it rest for 5-10 minutes. Slice, shred or leave it whole – it’s really tasty and tender!
