My mom learned to make this tender chicken dish when she volunteered to help prepare the dinners served at her church. It's my favorite main dish, and the gravy, seasoned with paprika, sour cream and onions, is the best. —Pamela Eaton, Monclova, Ohio

"This is absolutely delicious, there was a place in Wyandotte Mi called Hungarian Kitchen that everyone in our family loved & ordered from for over 40 years. They closed a few years ago & this recipe is almost - if not - the same as theirs. We have been missing it ever since they closed so thank you for sharing this recipe, I made a batch last night & by family demand I am doing another batch today.....thank you again!!"
