Reviews for Zippy Paprika Chicken
"We love this recipe! The smashed potatoes and roasted asparagus she serves with it are also very good."
"This is so good. What I do, though, is use tequilla instead of water, some kosher salt instead of soy sauce, and lime juice instead of lemon juice. The recipe as written is excellent, too."
"Very good recipe."
"My family loves this recipe. It's a nice change from other crumb-coated chicken recipes that I prepare. Be sure to make the sour cream sauce to go with it. The combination of flavors is amazing!"
