Can’t believe the summer is almost over and the morning low temperatures are definitely make everything feel like fall. Since our garden tomatoes are taking over all our meals (we eat everything tomato these days – tomato salad, pasta and tomato sauce, tomato juice, tomato and mozzarella, tomato everything) I decided to not let anything go to waste and made my sons favorite soup – tomato soup. I froze half of it in small containers so the kids can have this in a few days or weeks or whenever they crave it; plus it will also save me making a meal for them.
Chicken Paprikas is a great dinner idea and it’s pretty easy to make. This is definitely one of my kids favorite dish! Usually I make a double quantity of dumplings as they want extras.
I have this recipe from my mom but it’s a Hungarian inspired recipe and there are different variations so you can definitely make this your own and if you feel something else is needed, maybe you have a favorite vegetable you want to add or change the meat type go ahead. What makes paprikas a paprikas is the tomato sauce, paprika and the dumplings – those are an insanely delicious combination so keep those in your recipe.
With all the dressings existent on the market I still prefer a simple oil and vinegar/lemon juice dressing. Maybe I’m not used to it since we didn’t have any dressings while I was growing up, but I feel that the dressing takes away from the flavor of the vegetables.
