1 (2 to 3 pound)
whole chicken, cut into pieces
salt and pepper to taste
EXCELLENT! But not a 5 star recipe due to so many changes needed. 1st, if you're not going to use bone-in chicken then don't complain if you end up with a dish that's just "okay". Half the flavor of any dish calling for bone-in chicken comes from the bones. I did this: bought a chicken cut up from the grocery & removed skin, sprinkled w/ kosher salt, pepper, & paprika before browning. For sauce I added 3 cloves of garlic minced; 1 & 1/2 cup wine, 2 8oz boxes chicken broth, 1 & 1/2 cups water mixed with chicken stock base, 1 cup fat free sour cream, 1 tbspn Olivio (butter sub). Put LOADS more paprika in than called for, both Hungarian paprika & HOT Hungarian paprika (probably 1/4 cup paprika total). Added more salt & pepper. When chicken was done, I removed, de-boned & returned to pan after letting the liquid cook down to 1/2. Still had several cups of liquid & would NEVER recommend reducing to what this recipe says. Mixed a few tablespoons of flour with the liquid from the pan & added to sauce to thicken. Served over noodles. STELLAR! Restaurant quality! Company worthy!
Didn't care for this but Dh thought it was Ok. Not enough depth of flavor for my palate. Would definitely add some additional spices if making again.
This is a very good recipe, and this is a Hungarian talking. I personally like lots of sauce, so I increase the liquid. HUNGARIAN paprika must be used to get the true taste, or bland is an understatement. I also would never use boneless/skinless chicken breasts (to decrease cooking time as some have done) because the skin and cooking time is essential to meld the final flavor of "paprikas" (the Hungarian spelling of what is pronounced "paprikash"). Overall, this is the only recipe that I've ever had that can compare to the family recipe.
I love the flavor of this recipe. I nearly doubled everything and threw into crock pot and cooked 7 hrs. YUMMY. I got recipe off cook.com for omg good dumplings= 3 eggs, 1 1/2 c flour 1/2 ts salt and 1/2 c ev milk. beat well. boil on stove 5 min. I WILL MAKE AGAIN.
Very good, flavorful.
There are a couple of things I would note. The sauce you are to make at the very end from drippings will require a lot more than is suggested in the recipe. You will need to add more wine, more paprika, more oil. Also, you will probably need to add a more salt and pepper than you would think. Other than that everything should be very delicious.
if you are using american paprika, don't bother. american paprika might as well be called bland. hungarian paprika is what you want to use for anything that is a paprikash (obviously, that is a hungarian word).
This was delicious. My husband and son devoured it. I followed others advice and doubled the wine and chicken broth. I love spicy food so was going to add cayenne as suggested, but once I tasted my sauce no extra spices were necessary. WOW it was spicy. I made sure I got Hungarian half-sharp paprika(spicy) not a sweet paprika and it hit the spot. I had added a tad(tsp) more than the TBLS in the recipe. Will make this again and again!!
This recipe is really easy and delicious. To save time, I deboned the chicken and cut it up into pieces before cooking. This cut the cooking time down to 20 minutes.
