Chicken Paprikash Recipe

Paprika

This is my Auntie Beth’s recipe, and it’s a hearty and comforting Hungarian dish that’s a great way to cure the winter blues (or a persistent hangover). Coated with just the right amount of paprika, the chicken is stewed slowly until tender, and served over a bed of egg noodles. A healthy dollop of sour cream mixed with flour thickens up the stew to just the right consistency.

Ingredients

  • 3 tablespoons sweet Hungarian paprika
  • 2 teaspoons salt, plus more for cooking pasta
  • Black pepper, to taste
  • 8 chicken thighs with skin, trimmed of excess fat
  • 3 tablespoons vegetable oil
  • 1 large onion, chopped
  • 1 pound dried egg noodles
  • 1 cup sour cream
  • 3 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • 2 tablespoons parsley, chopped

Directions

In a large bowl, combine the paprika, salt, and pepper. Add the chicken and toss to coat. Heat the oil in a pot over medium-high heat. Add the onion, reduce heat to medium-low, and cook until translucent, about 3-5 minutes. Add the chicken and turn to coat with the oil. Add just enough water to cover and simmer for 20 minutes.

Meanwhile, bring a large pot of salted water to boil over high heat and cook the egg noodles according to package directions. Drain and set aside.

In a small bowl, combine the sour cream and flour. Add to the pot and stir. Increase heat to high and bring to a rapid boil, for 5 minutes, stirring constantly to break up any lumps. Season with salt and pepper, to taste, and sprinkle the parsley on top. Serve over hot egg noodles.
