A 15-minute paprika chicken recipe that uses on-hand ingredients for big flavor!


  • 1 1/2 lbs. boneless, skinless chicken breasts, cubed in 1/2-inch pieces
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons paprika
  • 3/4 teaspoon poultry seasoning
  • 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice


  1. Mix paprika, poultry seasoning, salt and pepper in a small bowl.
  2. Sprinkle the seasoning over the cubed chicken and toss to get it coated on all sides.
  3. Heat olive oil in a large saute pan over medium-high heat. Add chicken and saute for 4-5 minutes.
  4. Stir and turn the chicken pieces over and cook for another 3-4 minutes, until cooked through.
  5. Squeeze the fresh lemon juice over the chicken and serve!

Recipe Notes

I like to serve this paprika chicken over steamed brown rice and drizzle the extra pan juices over everything.
