Kwanzaa Chicken

Kwanzaa, a Swahili word meaning "the first fruits of the harvest," is celebrated in African-American households from Dec. 26 through Jan. 1. This simple chicken dish is excellent to serve as part of the New Year's feast.

4 pounds small chicken thighs
1/4 cup soy sauce
1 teaspoon paprika
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon black pepper
1 or 2 cloves garlic
2 tablespoons vegetable or olive oil
Parsley sprigs (optional)

Preheat oven to 400 degrees.

Generously oil a large roasting pan and set aside. Trim away visible fat from the chicken and discard. Rinse with cold water, drain and pat dry with paper towels. Rub the chicken all over with the soy sauce, and then sprinkle with the paprika, salt and black pepper. Mince the garlic and rub into the chicken.

Place the chicken in the roasting pan in a single layer. Drizzle with the oil. Bake the chicken in the hot oven for 20 minutes. Turn the chicken and bake 20 minutes longer or until browned golden and glazed and the juices run clear when pierced with a fork.

Place on a platter and decorate with parsley sprigs, if desired.

Serves 4 to 6.
