The backbone of this recipe is the smoked paprika, which is probably almost as expensive as the chicken. It is worth it. Good paprika is an amazing, powerful, underrated spice that everyone should have in their pantry.
Another reason I like this recipe is that we could use the cherry tomatoes that came from our garden. The tomatoes were coming out of our ass this year so we had to use them up! This is a great way to do that.
This recipe uses boneless, skinless chicken breasts so it is also very healthy.
This recipe also uses a fair amount of garlic so your house will smell super good. This picture below shows the sauce that you make to rub on the chicken. It is the smoked paprika, garlic, olive oil, salt, pepper, and cayenne pepper.
After you have made the sauce, you rub about 1/4 of it on the chicken, coating it well.
Once the chicken has been coated, the sauce is added to the beans, tomatoes, and cilantro. A couple of tablespoons of the sauce also goes into 1/2 cup plain Greek yogurt
Here is a picture of the yogurt sauce to spread on the chicken once it is out of the oven and the dish itself ready for a hot 450 degree oven.
