This recipe can also be made with chicken breasts or bone-in, skin-on thighs.
Breasts: Medium-sized (6 to 8 ounces) need 18 to 25 minutes in the oven and larger breasts can take close to 30 minutes. If the breasts are large, it's better to cut them diagonally lengthwise to make two smaller breasts that will cook faster.
Bone-in, skin on thighs: Brown the pieces in a drizzle of oil in a skillet over medium-high heat, then set aside. Add the chicken back to the skillet and braise for 35 to 40 minutes in the oven.
Sweet paprika is the type of regular paprika you see in grocery stores. Smoked paprika will be labeled as "smoked" on the label.
