These paleo paprika chicken thighs are breaded with cassava flour and spices and baked on a skillet.  They're juicy, flavorful and a great weeknight dinner idea.




  • 4 boneless chicken thighs
  • 2 Tbsp olive oil
  • 1 1/2 Tbsp cassava flour
  • 1 tsp paprika
  • 1/2 tsp garlic powder
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/4 tsp turmeric


  • 2 Tbsp lemon juice
  • 1/2 Tbsp honey
  • 1/4 tsp salt


  1. Pour the olive oil on the cooking pan and preheat the skillet to medium heat.
  2. In a small bowl, combine the cassava flour, paprika, garlic, salt and turmeric. Bread the chicken thighs with this mixture and place the breaded chicken on the hot pan.
  3. Cook the chicken thighs for 4 minutes (medium heat) on each side.
  4. While the chicken is cooking, make the sauce by combining the lemon juice, honey and salt in a small dish.
  5. Drizzle the mixture over the chicken thighs.  Cover the skillet with a lid and cook an additional 15-20 minutes on medium heat, flipping the chicken thighs after about 10 minutes.
  6. Check that the chicken thighs are cooked through and then serve immediately with your favorite sides.
