Chicken Paprikas

Shared by: Dylan G

This is the go-to recipe for family dinners and a dish I find comforting. It was the first meal I can remember when becoming familiar with my partner's family, whose matriarch often shows proud displays of her heritage through the food she makes.


4 Tablespoons of butter or vegetable oil
1 medium-size onion, finely chopped
¾ cup of cold water
1 ½ pound of chicken, cut into serving pieces
1 green pepper, cored, seeded, and finely chopped
1 medium tomato, seeded, and chopped
1 tablespoon of sweet of hot paprika
Salt and pepper
1 cup of sour cream


Heat the butter or oil in the skillet. Add the onion and sauté over moderate heat for 2 minutes. Add ¼ cup of water. Cover the skillet. Reduce the heat as low as possible and steam the onion for 1 hour. Add the chicken, pepper, tomato, and paprika. Season with salt and pepper and stir in the remaining ½ cup of the water. Cover and cook for 35 minutes, or until the chicken is tender. Serve the sour cream separately. Serve the chicken with nockerl, egg barley, or boiled rice and cucumber salad.
