Pretty good This was pretty good. We made extra sauce and then used 2 additional red peppers. I didn't want to over cook the peppers by cooking the sauce down forever so I added a bit of corn starch mixed with stock to thicken. If I wasn't cooking it for kids I am guessing I would rate it higher with some heat! Still was pretty tasty as is and I just added a bunch of crushed red pepper to my own plate. Pros: Kids liked it
Very good dishThis dish was quite nice and easy to make. It had a lot more flavor than I expected, although I did add some hot pepper flakes for a little extra kick. Would also be very good cooked with shrimp.Pros: very flavorfulCons: this would have been better with less sauce

Just Okay I didn't much care for this but my husband ate it right up. I thought it was a little bland and next time will add some hot paprika or red pepper to spice it up! Pros: Easy to Make Cons: Needs more flavor
I grew up in an area with a Hungarian community and went looking for a Chicken Paprikash recipe as I thought it would be something my boyfriend would like and I am so glad I chose this one! We both thought it was excellent! The only change I made was to use diced tomatoes instead of crushed as Trader Joe's doesn't sell crushed. Oh, and I added an extra 1/4 cup of sour cream. I used sweet paprika as the boy doesn't do well with spicy and served it over egg papradelle form TJ's. Yum!! I'll definitely make this again.
I was a bit hesitant trying this recipe out, but it was such a HUGE hit with my family! What great flavour! I think if it doesn't turn out well then you didn't follow it right, I used smoked paprika, I did follow the suggestion of one of the reviewers and cut the chicken in smaller pieces than the recipe suggested, I also added mushrooms with the peppers (used red and yellow) and onions, otherwise I did everything as suggested, used canned crushed tomatoes, reduced and thickened well, served it over whole wheat pasta, it's healthy, low in fat and very flavourful, we'll be adding it to the weekly meal rotations.
I recommend this highly. The changes I made first time out: Store did not have crushed tomatoes in a 15 oz. can, so I used a can of whole tomatoes and crushed them by hand. Sauce came out a little thin, which I attribute to too much tomato juice from this decision. I used one red and one green pepper for appearance.I sauteed them a few minutes before adding the onion to the saute in order to cook them thouroughly, get a little carmelized, because I thought it would taste better, and would do it again, though it about doubles the saute time overall. I added a pinch of garam masala spice, which added an extra note of heat and flavor. I'm also probably one of the few that has both hot and sweet paprika in my pantry, so I used equal amounts of both to equal the 2 tsp in the recipe. I'd also recommend smaller chicken pieces, one inch cubes, maybe, or 2 inch strips to keep things bite size. It had a mild heat, which I like, and not too much for my wife, who doesn't like spicy food. Garam Masala I'm sure is not necessary-it's just something I like and added. A pinch is plenty, whatever you use it for.
Yummy & simple!
