I made up this one to resemble the rotisserie chicken I love so much. It is so expensive here, so here's my version.

Basically this is a roasted chicken but in parts rather than a whole chicken. Roasted chicken is so much better tasting than fried chicken. As for the comment about paprika ( it is a fine crushed red pepper which can be sweet depending on which you use), it is a staple in most Sicilian cooking recipes. Read More

This was just OK for us. Have to be honest, we didn’t care for the strong flavor of paprika. Don’t know why this is called “Sicilian” roasted chicken because paprika is not a spice that is really used in Sicily or any part of Italy for that matter. More like “Hungarian” chicken. I make a similar dish to this without the paprika, but add granulated garlic, onion powder, dried oregano & rosemary, or some already mixed dried Italian seasoning. First step is to dry the chicken pieces off with paper towels before adding seasonings so it browns up nicely and has a crispy skin. If using all breasts, give them a light brushing with olive oil first. This helps to keep the meat moister. Then just lay it out on a sheet pan and roast for about 35-45 min at 400°, depending on what kind of oven you have. Mine is convection so takes less time. Easy and delicious. Read More

I used large chicken Breasts instead of pieces and it turned out great. Doesn't need quite the time for baking, probably 45 minutes vs an hour. It made the Chicken very tangy, but not too spicy. Will keep the recipe and use it again. Read More
