Chicken Paprikash – Hungarian recipe (Paprikas csirke)

Since the Czech recipe for Chicken Paprikash was very popular, I thought to add the Hungarian recipe for this dish.

Rustic Meals

 

Here are a couple of photos sent by our readers. One is from Hungary and one from Poland. Meat plays an important part in the Eastern European Cuisine and I believe these pictures capture this. Also using a wood plate makes food taste so much better and looks very appetizing.

Poland, Zakopane – a traditional restaurant with many kinds of meat dishes. It looks delicious!

 

Hungary, Budapest – a great assortment of meat dishes served with fries, vegetables, and pickled hot peppers.
