Paprika Chicken Breasts with a Yoghurt & Avocado Salad

Dinner doesn’t have to be complicated. This simple paprika chicken breast recipe is the perfect light meal that’s both healthy and delicious. Paprika adds flavour to chicken in an instant, and you can use either subtle or smoked paprika – choose whether you like your food smoky or sweet. Fragrant thyme and rosemary add a woody depth to the marinade, while a touch of acidity from the lemon juice beautifully brightens it up. The cooling yogurt and avocado salad is the perfect contrast to the rich marinade, and gets in one of your five-a-day, too.
