Ingredients

  • 1 chicken (3 1/2 to 4 1/2 pounds, quartered, or chicken parts)
  • salt to taste
  • black pepper to taste
  • 1 tablespoon paprika (Spanish smoked)
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • 1 tablespoon brown sugar
  • 1 clove garlic (finely minced)

Steps to Make It

1. Heat oven to 400 F. Line a roasting pan or jelly roll pan with foil.

2. Wash chicken parts and pat dry. Arrange chicken, skin side up, on the baking pan; sprinkle lightly with salt and pepper.

3. Combine remaining ingredients; rub the paste over the chicken pieces. Roast, uncovered, for about 50 to 60 minutes, or until an instant-read thermometer register 165° when inserted into the thickest part of a thigh. Juices will run clear when the chicken is pierced with a fork. Remove the chicken to a serving platter; cover loosely with foil and let stand for 8 to 10 minutes before serving.
