LEMON PAPRIKA GRILL CHICKEN & BROCCOLI SLAW revisited

I have been making this broccoli salad for years – it’s perfect for summer dinners – especially grilled dinners! I added a new grill recipe that I developed and it turned out PERFECTLY!

LEMON PAPRIKA GRILL CHICKEN
4-6 skin on chicken thighs
Juice of 1 lemon
2 lemons, sliced
1/4-1/3 cup Savory Spice Shop Sweet & Spicy Paprika
1/8-1/4 cup fresh ground Himalayan Pink salt
1/8 cup fresh ground peppercorn medley

  • Prick chicken pieces with fork tines.
  • Pour 1/2 teaspoon of lemon juice over each piece and chill 2 hours.
  • Prepare grill for indirect heat.  I use charcoal and HOT, but indirect heat. I also clean my grill and leave it off during the coals heating up process and then spray it with PAM grill non-stick spray just before adding the meat.
  • Remove chicken from lemon juice and drain.
  • Whisk together paprika, salt and pepper until well blended.
  • Season each piece of chicken with spice mixture, patting to adhere the spices to the meat.
  • Grill chicken skin side up 8-10 minutes.  Adjust as necessary to avoid flame flare-ups.
  • Turn skin side down and grill another 8-10 minutes or until browned or cooked through – again adjusting as necessary for flame flare-ups.
  • Add lemon slices to grill after turning the chicken and grill both sides.
  • Serve chicken over lemon slices.
  • Garnish with parsley.
