Good Frickin’ Paprika Chicken Recipe

While this is a pretty straightforward grilled chicken recipe, the vinaigrette at the end was a last minute touch that worked out nicely. I really like oil and vinegar-based sauces on grilled meats. They work beautifully with the smoky, caramelized exterior.

Good Frickin' Paprika Chicken


  • 6 tablespoons plain yogurt
  • 3 cloves garlic, crushed
  • 3 tablespoons ground paprika
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon hot chile paste (such as sambal oelek)
  • 1 pinch cayenne pepper
  • 1 (5 pound) whole chicken, cut into 8 pieces
  • salt
  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • 2 tablespoons sherry vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon ketchup
  • 1/8 teaspoon hot chile paste (such as sambal oelek)
  • 1 pinch paprika
  • salt and pepper to taste


  • Whisk together yogurt, garlic, 3 tablespoons paprika, 2 tablespoons olive oil, 1 tablespoon hot chile paste, and cayenne pepper in a large bowl.
  • Mix in chicken pieces and toss to evenly coat. Cover the bowl with plastic wrap and marinate in the refrigerator for 3 hours.
  • Preheat an outdoor grill for medium-high heat, and lightly oil the grate.
  • Remove chicken from the bag and transfer to a plate or baking sheet lined with paper towels. Pat chicken pieces dry with more paper towels. Season with salt.
  • Combine 1/4 cup olive oil, sherry vinegar, ketchup, 1/8 teaspoon hot chile paste, pinch paprika, salt, and pepper in a small bowl. Set aside.
  • Grill chicken, skin-side down, on the preheated grill for 4 minutes with grill lid closed.
  • Turn chicken and grill with lid closed until well-browned and meat is no longer pink in the center, about 6 minutes. An instant-read thermometer inserted into the thickest part of the thigh should read 180 degrees F (82 degrees C).
  • Spoon sherry vinegar mixture over cooked chicken and serve.

Triple Dipped Fried Chicken Recipes

This is the crispiest, spiciest, homemade fried chicken I have ever tasted! It is equally good served hot or cold and has been a picnic favorite in my family for years.

Triple Dipped Fried Chicken


  • 3 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons garlic salt
  • 1 tablespoon ground black pepper
  • 1 tablespoon paprika
  • 1/2 teaspoon poultry seasoning
  • 1 1/3 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 2 egg yolks, beaten
  • 1 1/2 cups beer or water
  • 1 quart vegetable oil for frying
  • 1 (3 pound) whole chicken, cut into pieces


In one medium bowl, mix together 3 cups of flour, garlic salt, 1 tablespoon black pepper, paprika and poultry seasoning. In a separate bowl, stir together 1 1/3 cups flour, salt, 1/4 teaspoon pepper, egg yolks and beer. You may need to thin with additional beer if the batter is too thick.

Heat the oil in a deep-fryer to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Moisten each piece of chicken with a little water, then dip in the dry mix. Shake off excess and dip in the wet mix, then dip in the dry mix once more.

Carefully place the chicken pieces in the hot oil. Fry for 15 to 18 minutes, or until well browned. Smaller pieces will not take as long. Large pieces may take longer. Remove and drain on paper towels before serving.
