Helpful hints

  • This family recipe was modified to be more heart-healthy. Traditional Hungarian cuisine uses copious quantities of sour cream, butter, lard, and fat from meats. This recipe has been modified to be leaner, while retaining traditional flavors. It is delicious served over dumplings, but is a little easier to serve over noodles.
  • Instead of 2 cups water and 1/4 teaspoon salt, you can use 2 cups reduced-sodium broth.
  • Traditional recipe calls for a whole 3 – 4 pound chicken.  Using chicken breasts keeps it lower in fat.  You can also use chicken thighs – use 12 in place of the 6 breast halves.
  • If you are on a lower protein diet reduce serving to 1/2 chicken breast, approximately 2 ounces.

Chicken Paprikas

I put some onion and garlic. I also used mrs. Dash seasoning blend...I used table blend. Oh yeah I threw some mushrooms in it I didn't put sour cream cuz all I had was regular and this is being made for my brother. He said he liked it.

Did I say to return the onion, to chicken, before adding the paprika? I forgot to check. I am sorry. RoxandDan.

One of my 5 star recipes! The only difference is I buy pre-cooked chicken strips to make it easier and faster. Dietitian comment: Some frozen chicken products have added sodium and phosphate additives so be sure to check the ingredients and nutrition facts.

My wife made this last night and it tasted like her grandmother used to make before she went into renal failure.

Not at all tasty. Chicken was bland with no flavor as was the sour cream sauce. Would not make it again!
