Easy Chicken Paprikash
Total TimePrep/Total Time: 25 min.
This was good!! I’ll make it again! Thanks!
This is a very bland and basic recipe for chicken in paprika sauce this is by no means Paprikash. One you need chicken with bone in and two you have to first brown your chicken pieces and onions, garlic, salt and pepper. Once the chicken is browned then you add the paprika and water to just cover and simmer that with a bay leaf. You also don't eat Paprikash in Europe with egg noodles you make home made mini dumplings called haluski or some countries refer to them as spatzel.
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.
