Reviews for Hungarian Chicken
"Not our favorite. However, we used regular paprika. I didn't even know it comes in different varieties so perhaps that would make it better. It was pretty bland. I did only use 1 1/2 T of paprika. It called for 1-2 T. It was easy and smelled great while cooking."
"Nice flavour . I used a mixture of hot & sweet paprika. Omitted the sour cream."
"Very nice :)"
"A little different than my grandmother's recipe, but very delicious. I recommend using Hungarian paprika."
"Very good. I will be making this again!"
"Easy and very tastey."
"Easy to prepare, simple ingredients and incredible flavor. Delicious, we'll definitely be making this regularly."
"Very good recipe. The only changes I would make next time, would be to take the skin off the chicken, and to a corn starch slurry to thicken the sauce after. Kids loved it!"
"This dish is a keeper, my whole family enjoyed this meal and I have picky eaters in my family. I made this dish a week ago and I already crave seconds."
