Recipe: Paprika Chicken

Recipe: Paprika Chicken If you like something cheap for a meal, if you look in the right places, you can find fairly cheap chicken. Chicken thighs seem to be the most cost effective, try to find skinless if you can, it seems buying them in bulk may be cheaper. I've got a really tasty coating for them, recipe coming up. First of all get your roasting tin out and preheat the oven to gas mark 7. In the tin put some olive oil, and make sure you cover the tin with the oil.. Then get your chosen chicken portions out and wash them, as mentioned, I find thighs more economical. Dry them off and put them in the tin, rotate them to get them coated in oil. Then in a mug or dish put some paprika, garlic granules, termeric, parsley and some salt (just a little salt, not so much). Sprinkle the mixed spices and herbs over the chicken and cook. Once cooked serve with home made potato wedges, oven chips or maybe a nice salad, and enjoy!


I really do have very little sympathy for strikers across the UK right now, sorry I just don't. We all went through the Pandemic, all facing fuel and food price rises.  A large proportion of the public are not on index linked occupational pensions, and can't strike or have no means of redress.  The country is deep in debt thanks to the Conservatives, there is no 10 Downing Street Money Tree. At least you have a job, lots still don't after getting laid off during the pandemic. If you are not happy then vote for another party, get the Conservatives out of power, make your voice heard, write to your MP, don't bring what is left of this country down and disable it any more than you have done.  Keep pushing forward, write those letters. Your MP will listen, they will take notice, they have to, it is their job, it is why we vote for them. If we all write demanding an election and also a vote on getting back in to the EU, they will have to pay attention. Together w
