Portuguese-Style Chicken

As I mentioned previously, my hubby is Portuguese, so once in a while, I will cook something from his background to make him happy. Today, I will be sharing with you what the Portuguese are mostly known for, their chicken! This recipe is really easy to make and doesn’t require a lot of ingredients either. This chicken goes great with a side of potatoes or rice, but you can add whatever you like to it. 🙂



  • Chicken Thighs
  • 1 Tbsp Chili Garlic Sauce
  • 1 Tbsp Smoked Paprika
  • 1 Lemon, juiced
  • 1 Tbsp Olive Oil
  • Salt & Pepper


  1. Preheat oven to 450F
  2. In a bowl, combine lemon juice, chili garlic sauce, paprika, oil, salt and pepper. Mix well.
  3. Add chicken thighs and toss so they are well coated.
  4. Heat a pan over medium-high heat. Add chicken thighs and sear until golden brown. About 1-2 minutes per side.
  5. Transfer chicken to a baking sheet and put in the oven.
  6. Bake until chicken is cooked through, about 8-10 minutes.
  7. Enjoy with side dish of your choice!
