Chicken with cinnamon and paprika


Author: Aušra

Cinnamon always associates with Christmas. So when autumn comes, we all tend to bake apple pies which almost every time are seasoned with cinnamon. But this spice is used not only for sweets. With it you can really prepare very tasty and also healthy dishes. One of them – chicken with cinnamon and paprika. And even if you are not used to cinnamon in non sweet meals, I can say that in here it gives only a very mild aroma and a good pinch of bitterness and cosiness. And paprika has a lot of vitamin C, so it’s really good if you don’t want to get cold.

Chicken, marinated in a sweet chilli sauce

We love chicken, but it’s very hard to find good chicken marinade to bake it on the grill. And know I know that it’s not the fault of the recipes, it’s because we a lot of time overbake it. The last time we baked chicken on the grill I was walking around the grill and watched that no one overbaked it 🙂 I looked strange, but… what can we do if we want to taste food good 🙂

These mini pies are very delicious and warm, and cold. I thought I will miss meat, but I didn’t. I thought to bring them to work for lunch, but I couldn’t because we ate them all for breakfast…

Sesame chicken with garlic sauce

Easily prepared chicken with a mild taste of sesame. My family liked it. Just don’t make mistake like me – don’t fry chicken on a very high heat – it burns very quickly 🙂 But chicken was good – baked but not overbaked, tender and juicy. And the garlic sauce is very easy, but my hubby liked it a lot 🙂 As always in my family – the easier the dish, the better my family evaluates it.
