This super-easy Paprika Chicken can be cooked in just one pot, which means there's very little faffing around and hardly any washing up either. We've combined sweet and smoked paprika in this dish to give it a slightly smoky flavour, but if you only have one kind then you could also use 2 tablespoons of the same paprika instead. Serve with rice or mashed potatoes for a super hearty, comforting dinner.
