Reviews forEasy Chicken Paprikash
"Bears no resemblance to authentic Hungarian paprikash chicken."
"This is a classic recipe except for the tomatoes. I am part Hungarian. In all chicken paprikash recipes I have NEVER seen tomatoes in any of the recipes."
"I made some changes to this recipe as I cooked: I used 1/4 cup paprika instead of 3 teaspoons, a can of diced tomatoes since I had no fresh ones, and I added 2 cups of chicken stock and some finely chopped kale. I served the paprikash over buttered egg noodles. This was a very easy yet tasty recipe that my husband and children enjoyed. I hope that my Hungarian grandmother would have approved!"
"My family thought this was just o.k. Could just be our preference/taste. I will say I thought it served a lot more than 4. I served with with a side of broccoli and a fruit, and it was a hearty 6 servings."
