Spanish sweet paprika and lemon chicken filets

Lemon Garlic chicken Is unbelievable, but we still having high temperatures, 89 degrees at this moment, remember that I am in the South of south hemisphere. I can’t say that is the best weather to spend in kitchen. But I must to be in. What a hectic day today has been! I certainly do not have time to get bored! I am preparing my husband’s dinner party, only for my in laws and my brothers and sisters in law. Needles to say- and I’m pretty sure that you should know me by now - I saw to it that we had everything. And you know that takes up too much time. And talking about time, I almost forget to prepare lunch, because I was very focused in dinner. So I made this quick and tasty dish. It’s as easy as that!! Spanish sweet paprika and lemon chicken breast Chicken & Salad Ingredients: • 1 tablespoon olive oil • 1 chicken breast fillets, halved lengthwise • 1 tablespoon Sweet Spanish paprika • 1 ½ tablespoon olive oil, plus extra oil for sauce • 1 tablespoon finely grated lemon rind • 2 cloves garlic, sliced • 2 tablespoons lemon juice • ½ cup chopped parsley Method: Heat the oil in a frying pan over medium heat. Sprinkle the chicken with the Sweet Spanish paprika, salt and add to the pan. Cook for 5 minutes each side or until browned. Add the extra oil, lemon rind and garlic, cook for 1 minute, then add the lemon juice and parsley. Serve with a carrots, cabbage , soy sprouts, lettuce, radichetta, salad.

Aqui en Malaga ya estamos en primavera "en teoria", porque no se nos va el frio este año, aun estamos con temperaturas bajisimas, en fin el tiempo esta loco.
