Smoked Paprika Roasted Chicken with Spinach

This chicken is easy and simple to make.

  • 4 chicken thighs (organic) (bone in)
  • 2 tbsp olive oil (extra virgin)
  • 1 tsp smoke paprika
  • 1 tsp granulate garlic
  • 1 tsp tumeric (organic)
  • 1 tsp kosher salt
  • 1/2 tsp fresh black pepper
  • 10 oz fresh baby spinach (organic) (or more if you can fit it into the pan)
  • Pre-heat oven to 350 degrees.
  • In a small dish add the six dry ingredients in a small bowl and mix all ingredient to create a rub make sure to pat dry your chicken and season both sides of the chicken, In the meantime in a large skillet on med/high heat add the olive oil and once hot place the chicken thighs in the pan skin side down and pan sear the meat for about two minutes,  you are not cooking the chicken thighs but lightly browning the skin side only.  Once lightly browned turn the skin side up and place in the hot oven for 15 minutes.
  • After 15 minutes add the spinach around the meat and in between the chicken and place back in the oven for 15 minutes.  Once cooked this is optional I placed my dish in the broiler for 2 minutes just to give it that nice deep golden charred.  Serve and enjoy.

*Wash chicken and pat dry, when I use chicken thighs  I always remove any extra fat from the thigh and discard, I always soak my chicken in vinegar and salt with lemon for at least 30 minutes.

Use as many organic ingredients as possible

I live in New York I am Married to Clifford aka Jack and have one daughter name Kaneen aka Nene and a beautiful Yorkie name Buttercup aka Butter, Stinkbutt and Grandma. I was raised and born in Brooklyn New York. I have a love for cooking and it is my passion as I have discovered and I would like to share it with you. I like just relaxing at home with my Buttercup while thinking of what dish I can try an tackle or in my backyard gardening. I love watching cooking shows Giada, Barefoot Contessa, The Neely's , The Pioneer Women, Rachel Ray, Paula Deen and Bobby Flay are my favorites. I love to talk to people face to face or on social media, twitter i just started and it is cool because you must say what you have to say short, sweet and fast you only get a few wpm. ( words per minute). I love house music also yes I do especially when I am driving in my car... This is a new journey that I am on and I known sometimes It may seem like a roller coaster from time to time but I am willing to try and explore new things and new recipes as well. Cooking is truly my passion I have known for a very, very long time and because I am a chatter box I guess blogging about my food and talking in general should be easy, well maybe.... I look forward to sharing the foods that I love to make and also some new ones along the way...
