      Smoked paprika from Trader Joes. Mmmmm 😋 I use it on everything, but it’s especially good on chicken. I get boneless chicken thighs, sprinkle a little salt and pepper and a generous dollop of paprika. Pop on the oven in a Pyrex dish for 30+/- minutes. You can throw other veggies or mushrooms in the dish as well. Yummers.

      Try it on fruit, too. Works well with melons.

      I use it as a substitute for black pepper….

      But paprika is not my latest spice discovery – that honor goes to none other than cardamom – somewhere between cinnamon and nutmeg…I had used it earlier on Indian food…But recently, I cooked Russian cuisine for orthodox Easter.Kulich for which I utilized a saved recipe from 1978..The bread/sweet employed yeast and though it was rich with butter and eggs (as in not the whole egg but egg yolks) – was yet less intense than traditional Western deserts…but the spices made it special-exceptional – nutmeg, cardamom, saffron…It is definitely something I will try again – but not that often because it was so time consuming – only on special occasions like Orthodox Easter…

        It’s supposed to have a different (earthier?) flavor from the usual (green cardamom) due to some sort of fermentation – might have to try an Indian specialty shop for that.

         

        I love the usual kind, especially when combined with ginger.

      I’m not as likely to do chicken, but I can see that it would work very well there.

      If I had to make chicken any other way, and regardless if I use spices, I have this thing about using lots of onions on chicken. I wonder how onions and smoked paprika would combo up.

      Hell, no... I'm not giving up...
