Sour Cream Chicken Paprika

Sour Cream Chicken Paprika


"My father would make this when I was a child. When I make it now, it reminds me of home. It is a milk, rich and creamy recipe. My family's all time favorite! A one-skillet dish. Serve over hot cooked egg noodles or rice, if desired."

  1. You can leave breasts whole or cut them up, whatever your preference. In a large skillet, heat oil over medium-high heat. Add chicken and pan-fry until cooked through and juices run clear, about 10 minutes. Remove chicken from skillet and set aside.
  2. Using the same skillet, cook onion in butter until translucent but not brown, about 5 to 8 minutes. Season with paprika and salt. Pour chicken stock into the pan, and bring all to a boil. Reduce heat to simmer; mix flour with sour cream until smooth, then whisk into chicken stock. Place chicken in skillet; simmer until chicken is heated through and sauce has thickened.

really good but for more 'kick', i like to add lemon juice and/or white wine when simmering the chicken in the stock.

I changed this recipe to be both dairy free and gluten free. I substituted soy-based sour cream and 1 tsp of cornstarch in place of the flour and omitted the butter. It was really delicious. ...

I was really looking forward to a savory dish when I added the paprika to the onions, but two cups of chicken broth was probably too much. The result is watery (even after adding corn starch th...
