SMOKEY BBQ paprika, garlic and lime

Chicken is by far a favorite in my house,and there really is so many combinations. In this recipe I use chicken thighs, it has a higher fat content which doesn’t dry out the chicken. Based in coconut oil, paprika, turmeric, garlic powder and lime – there are always left overs ready to hit the lunch boxes the next, eaten hot or cold!
