    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.  -  30 Jan 2018  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    Used two chicken leg quarters with the skin on. My hubby isn't a chicken lover, but really loved this and said to save the recipe. It's easy and relatively quick.  -  28 Feb 2019  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
