A Sunday Supper- Chicken Paprikash
PUBLISHED ON: 01.09.2011
I am attracted to recipes that provide comfort and can be served family style. The Winter months are a real opportunity to prepare dishes that are also hearty, stick to your ribs, type of meal.
A few weeks have passed since we have been able to host Sunday Supper with friends and family with the rush and exhaustion of the holidays. This would be just the kind of food that would be passed around the table, served on a huge platter.
I prefer to serve this dish over large egg noodles and next time will skip the dumplings.
Recipe from Saveur
1 teaspoon kosher salt, plus more to taste
2-1/2 cups plus 2 tablespoons flour
1 egg, lightly beaten
1/4 cup canola oil
1 3-4 lb. chicken, cut into 6-8 pieces, skin removed
Freshly ground black pepper, to taste
2 tablespoons sweet paprika
1 Italian frying pepper, chopped
2 tomatoes, peeled, cored, seeded, and chopped
1 large yellow onion, minced
1-1/2 cups chicken broth
3/4 cup sour cream
3 tablespoons unsalted butter
2 tablespoons finely chopped flat-leaf parsley
1. Bring an 8-quart pot of salted water to a boil. In a bowl, whisk 2 cups of flour and 1 teaspoon salt; form a well in the center. Add egg and 1/2 cup water to well; stir to form a dough. Knead in bowl until smooth, about 1 minute. Using a teaspoon, scoop walnut-size portions of dough into pot. Boil dumplings until tender, 6-8 minutes. Drain dumplings and rinse in cold water; cover with tea towel and set aside.
2. Meanwhile, season chicken with salt and pepper. Put 1/2 cup flour on a plate; dredge chicken; shake off excess. Heat oil in a 6-quart Dutch oven oven over medium-high heat. Cook chicken, turning once, until brown, 8-10 minutes. Set chicken aside. Add paprika and half the pepper, along with the tomatoes and onions, to pot; cook, stirring, until onions are soft, about 5 minutes. Add chicken and broth; bring to a boil. Reduce heat to medium-low and simmer, covered, turning chicken once, until fully cooked, 12-15 minutes. In a small bowl, whisk together 2 tablespoons flour and sour cream; whisk in 3/4 cup of sauce from pot. Stir sour cream mixture into sauce in pot. Remove from heat.
3. Melt butter in a 12″ skillet over medium-high heat, add dumplings and parsley, and cook, tossing occasionally, until hot, about 2 minutes. Serve chicken garnished with remaining peppers and dumplings on the side.
My brother brought me Hungarian paprika from a recent trip to Budapest. This chicken paprikash is an excellent idea to use it.
Looks and sounds great:@)

Chicken Paprikash is one of our favorites and using good paprika is so important. I've never made the dumplings and have always used noodles. I'll have to give your recipe a try.Sam

Your picture makes me salivate! Such a nice close-up! haha… Thanks for sharing & have a great weekend.Cheers, Kristy
This looks relly yummy, simple and quick, one for my 'to do' list. Diane
Thank goodness I am cooking something bcause that looks fabulous!
This is about the 3rd time I've seen a Chicken Paprikash dish and it's nagging me to make it. Looks wonderful Velva.
Paprika dishes are great and this one looks incredibly delicious. I would serve it over egg noodles also. Perfect dish for this time of year!

Velva, the chicken with paprika looks good. I see that you used a generous amount of paprika. That's always a good sign.
I've never made this, but it sounds very good. I love comfort food in the winter.
It's a cold, snowy day here and I'm craving a plate of that paprikash! Comfort!
Nice recipe for a Sunday afternoon dinner.
this is an excellent dish – especially since it is 27 degrees and it feels like 17 outside here in NYC – my first thought is that I went into a time warp and you magically were in a different time zone and you had already had dinner – see what the cold does to your brain….
This is such a wonderful supper on a Sunday. It's hearty and comforting. I also prefer chicken paprikash over noodles. yum.
What a great winter meal idea! I also love egg noodles!
never made this dish before, but it always sounds delicious-yours is beautiful!
Hi TOTV-just wanted to stop by and say hello and thanks for your kind words recently. Your message was appreciated and thanks for reaching out. I'm a little alarmed that you are talking about chicken recipes, but you didn't know I was coming, so I'm trying not to overreact:-)
Paprikash is a favorite in our kitchen. I love the recipe you used. I'll have to give it a try. Blessings…Mary
Oh, yes, such a perfectly satisfying winter dish. Thanks!
mmmm, with a dish like this, i would look more forward to sunday! what a delicious comforting meal.

Chicken paprikash? More like chicken pop in my mouth!

Paprika and sour cream is like magic. I can just taste it!
Oh my gosh-this looks so good and what fun it is to say. I could say paprikash a few times a day just to smile. I wish I had this whipped up in my kitchen right now!
I'm loving sweet paprika in this dish. It's one of my favorite spices.
Velva…. Hooray for you. You won the Nordic Ware Cake Pan that I was givingaway. Please send me your mailing address. [email protected]

Wow, Velva, your chicken paprikash is beautiful! Thanks for sharing your recipe. I'll bet it would be great over noodles as you've suggested (or rice). Congrats on winning the Nordic Ware Cake Pan! FYI, there are a couple of blog awards on my blog for you. If you feel so inclined, pick them up here: http://seasonedandstirred.blogspot.com/2011/01/blog-awards-january-2011.html. Happy New Year!
We had this dish (different recipe) just a week or so ago. You're right, it's perfect for a winter night!
I love this dish and haven't seen it in ages! Grad presentation.
The Paprikash looks so hearty, and so saucy! Delicious!

Oh what a lovely dish Velva. Love the combination very much!
This is a chicken dish I will have to try! It looks fabulous! I love those one dish meals too…pile it beautifully on a huge platter and pass it around…it feels so very Ina to me!(Now if I could just be in the Hamptons while passing that dish around…sigh) Lovely!
Sounds wonderful…and the dumplings look delish anyway 🙂
I'm not skipping those dumplings for anything, Velva! My mother used to make them…I adore them. This is the perfect dish, especially with the chilly weather we've been having.I don't really mind except when the kids are down and want it to be warm!
THat looks like a wonderful dinner, something I can totally sink my teeth into. Always looking for exciting new things to make with chicken.*kisses* HH
This is definitely my type of winter meal, Velva! It looks amazing and I love your idea of serving it with egg noodles too!

That looks delicious! A great dish. so comforting.Cheers,Rosa
You're certainly right about the great fit a comforting dish like this one can complement longer winter months. I've never tried making chicken this way. What am I waiting for? LOL Book marked. It's time I get some new Hungarian Paprika ;o)Have a great week Velva.Ciao for now,Claudia
This looks so delicious. I think I would have to leave out the dumplings too. Though I think I would like them, my family probably would not. I think they all would love the rest of the dish for sure:)
An incredibly delicious meal! I do love the flavors with paprika!
Great recipe for a Sunday Family Meal. Something different to serve the family.THANKS!!! for stoppong by and visiting, come back anytime.

Sunday dinners are always the best = I posted my recipe for this just a few weeks ago – they look so different, but probably taste quite similar. I love this dish!:)Valerie
Ooh, paprika chicken is so wonderful. Yours looks perfect, Velva! I might have cheated on my diet for something this lovely;-)
