Smoked Paprika & Garlic Grilled Chicken

Do your weekends fly by as quickly as mine do?  I mean sometimes I feel like there truly was no weekend, yet I KNOW I there was.  I guess even when I have three day weekends, they seem to go by pretty quickly.  I think the solution here is to retire....   A girl can dream, right?

I loved this recipe.  The flavors that are combined here really are delicious.  Simple and perfect... serve it up with a quick lemon aioli and it just makes each bite that much better!

Smoked Paprika & Garlic Grilled Chicken
Adapted from Redbook
- Serves 2 -
Printable Recipe 
1 1/2 Tablespoons smoked paprika
1 1/2 Tablespoons champagne vinegar
1 1/2 Tablespoons honey
2-3 garlic cloves, finely minced
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon pepper
2 large boneless, skinless chicken breasts

In a small bowl, mix together all the ingredients, except the chicken, until well combined.  Rinse the chicken and pat dry with a paper towel.  Spread mixture over both sides of the chicken, cover and refrigerate for 2-4 hours.

Preheat grill to 375 degrees F.  Clean and oil the grill grates.  Place the chicken directly over the fire and grill 5-8 minutes per side or until the chicken reaches an internal temperature of 160-165 degrees F.  Remove from grill and allow to rest for 3-4 minutes before serving.  Enjoy!

Smoked paprika makes such a notable but subtle difference, doesn't it? Great looking chicken, Jenn!
