Chicken Paprikash

Paprika’s sweet, smoky, mild flavor is the star of this savory dish.


Sauteing the paprika in a bit of oil allows its flavors to bloom and become more pronounced, in comparison to adding it in with the liquids. Once the chicken is added, cover and let simmer until fully cooked.

Just before serving, stir in the sour cream and season to taste with salt and pepper.ChickenPaprikash4
