Braised Paprika Chicken

Sweet Hungarian paprika gives this creamy braised chicken the best flavor. This is a good “pantry dish” since you should have the basics on hand and only need to purchase the chicken. You may vary the recipe by using cubed veal shoulder instead of chicken and mushrooms instead of peppers. Serve with whole-wheat orzo flavored with minced parsley or dill.

"This is the first recipe I have made from this site. It was very good. My entire family, including my toddler, loved it. I did not have a red pepper so I used all green peppers. Also, I used boneless chicken thighs. I will be making this...

Average, with altered recipe

After reading reviews, I had very high expectations. I think using all red pepper and no green was a mistake that increased the overall sweetness of this dish. It was edible, but nowhere near a favorite.

One-pot preparation

Wow! This is delicious! 4 cups of onions sound like a lot but it's perfect cause they cook down a lot. Left out the red pepper flakes cause the little one doesn't do spicy. Great recipe...thanks!!!!

Great dish!

This recipe is a keeper! Very delicious and simple to prepare. Everyone in my family loved it, even my picky 16 year old.

Simple preparation with relatively few ingredients
Great Recipe

This recipe tasted wonderful! I will definitely make it again but I will use chicken breasts that are already skinned & deboned for quicker preparation. I served it with quinoa mixed with spinach & chopped almonds.

So easy to put together

I made this for my family this last week and even my kids loved it. I used a whole red and whole green bell pepper instead of just the amounts in the recipe, but other then that I followed the recipe. I served it over mashed potatoes and it was just delicious! I will definitely be making this again.
