Sweet Paprika Chicken, Lime Rice, Salsa Verde, and Broccoli

Well, I’d share a picture here, but it’s all gone. It was that good. The other day I picked up some beautiful seasonings at FreshMarket and thought I’d give them a try with dinner tonight. we were not disappointed.

I put a touch of cilantro in the rice with some lime juice and it was a great light touch giving it just enough flavor to be different than your usual plain jane rice. I seasoned the chicken with sweet paprika and a little bit of olive oil. The broccoli (which everyone said was amazing) were steamed in the pan with chicken broth and sprinkled with red pepper flake and a tiny drizzle of olive oil. I also halved some grape tomatoes and tossed them in olive oil with sweet basil and garlic. Those paired nicely with the broccoli and the rice.

On the surface it was your average dinner of chicken, broccoli and rice, but a few little twists of lime and a dash of seasoning really made it a wonderful dinner, worthy of any dining table.


So, what’s for dinner at your house tonight?

About Brian

A few years ago I had gotten really sick with a mystery infection that put me in the hospital for over a week. When I got home I wasn't much better off. I had to have foot surgery and was laid up on the sofa for awhile. In that time I watched alot of Food Network and really gained a passion for food and it's preparation, cooking for my family was something I could still do even when I wasn't feeling my best and it was a way to help myself reach a healthier goal as well. Now I find myself always looking for healthier options that still taste wonderful and with my wifes gluten allergy I have even more of a challenge of feeding everyone. Honestly ... I am loving every minute of it. Because my kitchen has become my place of Zen.


  1. I think I’m coming to your house for dinner tomorrow!
