If there’s one ingredient that is always on hand in the Dalkin kitchen, it’s Paprika!! Growing up it was essential to so many of the dishes my mom would make, and it’s carried over to my kitchen 100%

Paprika Grilled Chicken with Avocado Red Pepper Salsa

Whether it’s in the form of smoked paprika or regular Hungarian paprika or Hot Hungarian paprika, you can bet that it’s on hand at all times. It’s essential for making home fries, whipping up a quick spice blend like the one we are using today, or really making a statement in something like Chicken Paprikash. Any way you spin it, it’s gonna be good!

McCormick has a variety of paprika available – my two favorite being the Gourmet Collection Hot Hungarian Paprika and Smoked Paprika. They make for the perfect spice blend when you throw in a bit of salt, pepper and garlic powder! And that’s exactly what ya need to whip up this Paprika Grilled Chicken with Avocado Salsa!
