The benefit of running my blog motivates me to experiment in my kitchen and create recipes that sometimes are a hit and some a miss. This recipe is what I put together when I was trying to make the Mc Donald’s Southwestern Chicken salad and wanted to create the same smoky grilled chicken they serve with their salad.

Since then I have used the smoked paprika grilled chicken in salads, tostada’s, quesadillas, lettuce wraps with chipotle dressing and  yesterday I made a chicken sandwich for lunch with lettuce, tomatoes, avocado and a creamy cilantro dressing for my husband. Sharing with you this recipe that is a favorite in my home. I love to marinate the meat overnight and make freezer bags of the marinated chicken for days I want a lighter meal.
