Thinking of sunny Spain

Smoked Paprika Roasted Chicken

After a long day at work, I opened the cabinet looking for inspiration only to stare blankly at a bag of polenta – boring, bland polenta.  Then, I caught sight of a forgotten container of smoked Spanish paprika, and my mind began to wander back to Spain and the plates of tapas shared alongside glasses of sherry.  This dish borrows those flavors.

Since this comes together in less than half an hour, it is the perfect supper escape after a marathon day at work.  The flavors are so intoxicating and have such depth that I wouldn’t be afraid to entertain friends with it, pairing it with a light salad and maybe even sangria.
