I glanced over a few pages of the reviews before I chose this recipe. I made it tonight and I am very disappointed, it was bland. It looks good when prepared but it was lacking flavor. I followed recipe.. I didn't change anything.. I wasn't impressed. Easy but would not make again.
Braised Paprika Chicken
From EatingWell: January/February 2009
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.

I used bone-in chicken and the result was pretty greasy. I'd like to try it again with boneless chicken. Also, I might skip the flour; I didn't think it was necessary. I thought the spice level was fine, but my young children thought it was too spicy.
The sauce was out of this world! I made it for myself and a friend and couldn't have picked an easier and more delicious recipe! I paired it with eating well's roasted lemon parmesan cauliflower and everything on the plate was so good it was hard to stop eating even when we were full!
This dish came together very easily and was quite inexpensive to make for my dinner party of 4. Under $10- seriously- although I only needed to buy chicken and fresh paprika. Switched nonfat greek yogurt for sour cream. Served with radiatore pasta to soak up the sauce. My guests raved about it. The only change I would make next time is to use only dark meat- the chicken breasts got very tough while the thighs were perfect.
I adapted slightly for my crock pot. Seared the chicken thighs (boneless, skinless) then threw it into the crockpot with all the ingredients except the bell peppers and sour cream. Cooked on low for three hours (stirred once) then added the peppers and cooked another hour on low. served with brown rice. Very tasty!
In the future, I might use chicken breasts instead of thighs. Maybe it was just the package of thighs I picked up, but they had a lot of extra fat on them. Took forever to trim them! Otherwise it was really delicious!
