Fusion Pepper Chicken

I’m so excited about this recipe! Partnering with Icelandic Provisions lets me do what I love: use their Skyr to produce recipes for my followers! A couple months ago, I was inspired to create a creamy fall chicken dish, and I liked the idea of using Skyr as a base.
Icelandic Provisions Skyr is absolutely one of my magic elixirs. It’s the only real Skyr in the US that uses heirloom Skyr cultures dating back centuries in Iceland. Cultures are what define Skyr and give it its unparalleled rich, creamy taste and texture. I’ve tried a few, and this one’s by far the best!
I enjoy food updated with a twist, so I started by creating a custom spice blend of hot paprika, coriander, Maras pepper, Aleppo pepper, caraway seeds and cumin–a spice profile that I love. Blended with lemon, garlic, olive oil, fresh turmeric, ginger and Icelandic Provisions Skyr, it’s a unique explosion of flavors. Having an updated spice profile or two is important and lets you change things up in the kitchen. But if what you have on hand is chili powder, red pepper flakes, cumin, and paprika, that works too. I marinate chicken thighs in the combination overnight and roast in the oven until golden-brown and bubbly. Absolutely scrumptious!
We loved this dish so much that we made it three times in one week. It is so wonderfully easy to make and delicious the day you make it, but so satisfying to have as leftovers–it’s great re-heated! This recipe is a must do.
