Juicy Spicy Thighs


This is the Spicy Chicken that I saw on Paul Hollywood's Bread. It was actually Spicy Shredded Chicken because it was shredded and eaten with tortilla. But after I took the chicken out of the oven, it seemed such a shame to shred them.

Again, the smoked paprika I had in the fridge came in very handy together with the chili flakes which I stocked up after becoming enamored with them when I had spaghetti aglio olio


As I was putting the spice mix together, I was reminded of the Peruvian Roast Chicken that I made quite some time ago. Yes, that roast chicken was fab and this one should be too.

I used only 3 chicken thighs and I let them marinate in the fridge for a few hours. Before roasting, they were taken out to stand to room temperature.


It took only 35 minutes for the chicken thighs to cook. As expected, this spice mix yielded very tasty chicken thighs. I love the smoky aroma imparted by the smoked paprika.


Best of all, they tasted so good with the Roasted Tomato Salsa.

  2. I have few chicken thighs in freezer. Been cracking my head on how to cook them over the weekend.

    This recipe sounds good with all those spices and herbs.

    1. It's delicious and not spicy hot unless if you add extra chili flakes.

  6. There are 5 dried spices in this recipe alone...that's why they look so good but I can't invest in so many spices as I don't cook as often...haiz :( I'm assuming you have at least a dozen (or more?) bottles of dried spices in your fridge at any one time (cayenne, fennel, coriander, onion, turmeric, chilli, parsley, sage, rosemary & thyme?).....kekeke! :D I think I need to invest in smoked paprika and cayenne! ;)

  7. Clap! Clap! I pat your head for being so smart always. I had no idea that your ayam could go well with Roasted Tomato Salsa as my fixed mindset only dips tortilla chips with Salsa Sauce. This is truly a Phong Hollywood recipe. Kudos!

  10. I do the same by tossing my meat with spice in a ziploc and do a combination bake on my dinner plate. No mixing bowl, no baking tray. That's my easy dinner plan.
