Chicken PaprikashSubmitted by: REBECKY44
IntroductionThis Hungarian dish is easy and delicious. The original recipe said it is for "4" but I found that depending on the size of your chicken it really makes enough for "6" or 3 days of meals or leftovers! This Hungarian dish is easy and delicious. The original recipe said it is for "4" but I found that depending on the size of your chicken it really makes enough for "6" or 3 days of meals or leftovers!
1 whole chicken (cut into 8 pieces)
1 tbs butter, softened
1 garlic clove, crushed
2 large onions, thinly sliced
1 Tbsp sweet Hungarian paprika
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 cup chicken broth
2 Tbsp sour cream
2. In a small roasting pan, stir onions w/paprika, salt and 1/4 cup of water. Arrange chicken pieces in the pan. Cook chicken for about 10 min. on 450 degrees, then lower the heat to 375 and continue to cook an additional 30 minutes. Chicken is don when the internal temperature of the chicken reaches 175, and the juices run clear when the thickest part of the thigh is pierced with a knife. Note that breast cook faster than thighs, so you may want to take those out if done first, and let the thighs cook a few minutes longer
3. Remove chicken pieces to a platter and let sit for 10 minutes. You may want to cut away the meat from the bones, and cut the chicken pieces into smaller pieces (entirely optional). Skim and discard fat from the onion mixture in the pan. Add chicken broth to the onions. Placing the roasting pan on the stove top burner, bring to boiling over medium heat, stirring to loosen the browned bits. Stir in sour cream. Serve with onions spooned over it.

I so glad that you enjoyed this recipe. Hmmm more sauce. Maybe add more broth to the onion mixture once the chicken is finished cooking.
This really was a wonderful recipe. I tend to make a lot of chicken dishes, so I'm always on the lookout for really great tasting recipes that will satisfy both me and my band of picky eaters. Everyone loved this recipe and asked me to put on my repeat list - so thanks for sharing!! - 1/30/11

I'm so glad you enjoyed it!
I make this also, but got the recipe from my Hungarian mother. To do it more authentically, add (3 -4) carrots sliced like coins. Also, increase the paprika to 3-5 Tbsps (not a typo). I usually cook this in a dutch oven on the stove until done (~45 m) - 3/22/10

So glad you and your family enjoyed this recipe!
Absolutely delicious and so easy to make! I'll definitely make this again. I used all chicken thighs since they were on sale. Didn't need the chicken broth for the sauce--I guess because using all thighs yielded more chicken juices. - 2/16/09
