Quick and easy comfort food.


Deadlines, carpool, more deadlines,
email, laundry, more deadlines,
voice mail, PTO events, oh, and
yeah, DINNER!
After almost eleven years of marriage,
the Hub can spot an incoming wife
meltdown at forty yards.



Luckily, when he says, "Don't worry about dinner,
I've got it," it does not mean something served from
a styrofoam box or carton or paper wrapper.
Hub brings out the comfort food and one of his
specialties is:

Garlic-Paprika Chicken.

Ingredients:

Chicken quarters (4-6)
Paprika
Garlic salt
Black pepper
Olive oil

Directions:
Wash the chicken quarters and pat dry.
Place the chicken meaty side up in a lightly oiled
13 X 9 X 2 baking dish.
Rub the chicken with more oil, then generously sprinkle
with garlic salt, paprika and black pepper.
Bake at 350 for one hour or until the juices run
clear. Does it get any easier or more delish than
this?

Mom always said, "Marry a
man who can cook." Was she
ever right! Enjoy!!!

  4. I love stick-it-in-the-oven-and-forget-it recipes. Perfect for busy days. I've rediscovered paprika, too. What a fabulous spice. Makes such a difference on meats.

    And what a great HUB!

  6. This looks like a great way to use the smoked paprika that I love! My hubby loves making big breakfasts on the weekends, but isn't much of a dinner cook :)

  10. Thanks, all! Life has been a bit chaotic in
    McKinlay-Orf land lately, so I do feel very lucky
    to have a Hub who can step up to the dinner
    plate. LOL.

  12. Sending props to your Hub. A great, easy, delish recipe!

    And I feel you on the marry-a-man-who-can-cook philosophy! (It's mine, too, lol!)
