"My whole family, full of picky eaters, loves this dish, and it's great for freezing and reheating on a cold day or for an easy dinner on cold nights. This dish comes out as more like a stew than a meat with a sauce. Serve over egg noodles or hot cooked rice. Goes great with fresh, crusty pumpernickel bread for hearty winter meal. Easy to make and can be kept on low heat on the stove for lengthy parties."

Footnotes

  • Cook's Notes:
  • I wouldn't advise reheating with a microwave, as the sour cream can go a little off.

Well, I didn't think anything was missing the first time I made it and loved it as written. I used half sweet and half smoked paprikas the second time I made it, and it was good that way too. Use your judgement for your taste for this. Use good hungarian Paprike for this recipe. Don't use something weak that has been sitting on your shelf for years...

I made this for the weekly recipe group selection. I followed everything as directed using my own homemade chicken broth. We've never had chicken paprika, so can't compare to any other recipe. The chicken was nice and tender, the sauce was very flavorful, I do buy my paprika at myspicesage.com, so some fresh good paprika. My husband really raved about it and said to make this one again.

Made this for Recipe Group...We LOVED this! Chicken Paprika is one of my hubby's favorite meals, so I knew this was gonna be a hit w/ him. I did lighten it up a bit, as we are trying to eat healthier...I used whole wheat flour in place of regular for dredging, sprayed my pan w/ olive oil cooking spray instead of using oil and reduced the amount of sour cream by more than 1/2 and used light sour cream. This still provided the richness/creaminess w/o all the extra fat/calories. I served this over Ronzoni Smart Taste egg noodles (this was our first time trying them and they were FANTASTIC, BTW!). This was super simple to make and a definite keeper~YUM! Thanks for sharing. :)
