Premium Hungarian Paprika

CP   |   August 2018

Hungarians adopted Paprika as their national spice, using it generously in their goulashes, stews and chicken dishes. Add it to chili recipes along with other chili powders, or use it as a garnish sprinkled on deviled eggs or potato salad. Hungarian Paprika lends an appealing flavor to dishes as well as a beautiful deep-red color. Resist the temptation to cook the same this over and over. Instead, surprise your family with Baked Garlic Hungarian Paprika Chicken Legs roasted with vegetables. 

Spice Talk Tip:

An unusual spice fact. Pound for pound, paprika has higher Vitamin C content than an equal amount of Citrus Fruit.

Wash and dry chicken legs. Rub with salt, white pepper and bouillon powder. Set aside. 
In a small pan over low heat, combine canola oil, minced garlic, fresh herbs, Hungarian Paprika and cayenne pepper. Stir for 30 seconds. Let this mixture sit for a little bit about 5 minutes.
When ready to bake, preheat oven to 425°.
Place the chicken in a large bowl. Toss and roll garlic Hungarian Paprika spice mix, then sprinkle all the chicken with the onion powder.
Have ready a baking pan lined with foil. Place vegetables on the bottom. Top with a wire rack. Arrange chicken legs in a single layer on rack.
Bake until legs are cooked through and skin is crispy, about 45-50 minutes.
If desired rotate chicken halfway through cooking roughly 25 minutes.
For a card option serve with rice.
