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.

Homemade Guava Jam Pop Tarts

I think most of us have grown up eating pop tarts and this is a recipe using Hawaiian guava jam which my kids absolutely love!  Its also a fun recipe that the kids enjoy making in the kitchen.

Homemade Guava Jam Pop Tarts

Prep Time: 30 | Cook Time: 20-25 | Ready In: 60+



  • 2 cups (8 1/2 ounces) all-purpose flour
  • 1 tablespoon sugar
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup (2 sticks or 8 ounces) unsalted butter, cut into pats
  • 1 large egg
  • 2 tablespoons (1 ounce) milk
  • 1 additional large egg (to brush on pastry)

Guava Jam Filling:

  • 3/4 cup guava jam
  • 1 tablespoon cornstarch mixed with 1 tablespoon cold water


  • 2 cups confectioner’s sugar
  • 2 tablespoons light corn syrup
  • 2 tablespoons whole milk
  • candy sprinkles (optional)

Cooking Process:

Guava jam filling:

Mix the guava jam with the cornstarch/water in a small saucepan. Bring the mixture to a boil, and simmer, stirring, for 2 minutes. Remove from the heat, and set aside to cool. Use to fill the pastry tarts.


Whisk together the flour, sugar, and salt. Work in the butter with your fingers, pastry blender or food processor until pea-sized lumps of butter are still visible, and the mixture holds together when you squeeze it. If you’ve used a food processor, transfer the mixture to a large bowl. Whisk the first egg and milk together and stir them into the dough, mixing just until everything is cohesive, kneading briefly on a well-floured counter if necessary.

Divide the dough in half (approximately 8 1/4 ounces each), shape each half into a smooth rectangle, about 3×5 inches. You can roll this out immediately  or wrap each half in plastic and refrigerate for up to 2 days.


If the dough has been chilled, remove it from the refrigerator and allow it to soften and become workable, about 15 to 30 minutes. Place one piece on a lightly floured work surface, and roll it into a rectangle about 1/8″ thick, large enough that you can trim it to an even 9″ x 12″. [You can use a 9″ x 13″ pan, laid on top, as guidance.] Repeat with the second piece of dough. Set trimmings aside. Cut each piece of dough into thirds – you’ll form nine 3″ x 4″ rectangles.

Beat the additional egg and brush it over the entire surface of the first dough. This will be the “inside” of the tart; the egg is to help glue the lid on. Place a heaping tablespoon of filling into the center of each rectangle, keeping a bare 1/2-inch perimeter around it. Place a second rectangle of dough atop the first, using your fingertips to press firmly around the pocket of filling, sealing the dough well on all sides. Press the tines of a fork all around the edge of the rectangle. Repeat with remaining tarts.

Gently place the tarts on a lightly greased or parchment-lined baking sheet. Prick the top of each tart multiple times with a fork; you want to make sure steam can escape, or the tarts will become billowy pillows rather than flat toaster pastries. Refrigerate the tarts (they don’t need to be covered) for 30 minutes, while you preheat your oven to 350°F.

Remove the tarts from the fridge, and bake them for 20 to 25 minutes, until they’re a light golden brown. Cool in pan on rack.


In a small bowl, whisk together the confectioner’s sugar, corn syrup and milk. On a piece of parchment paper test the glaze by spreading it with a rubber spatula. If it is not smooth, add a touch more milk. Spread the pop tarts with the glaze and top with sprinkles.
