An easy dinner idea and you can serve it with rice, potatoes, spinach, vegetables, over a salad or turn it into a sandwich. This is a great recipe and we probably make it once or twice a month in our household. Also, if you prefer pork or beef feel free to use that instead of chicken.
Chicken can be delicious when cooked right. However, it’s very easy to end up with a too dry or too chewy version. Here is a great recipe for baking chicken breast or chicken tights.

Usually when I cook a stew I don’t follow the exact recipe every time, instead I like to play with the ingredients and I often use whatever I have in the refrigerator. You can use any combination of meat – sausage / bacon / pork / beef / chicken add garlic, onion and spices, add wine and you are set for great reviews for dinner. The meat stew goes really well with polenta and pickles or you can make some steamed or mashed potatoes on the side.
Every time I go to a Romanian restaurant this is what I get. It’s a perfect combination of meat and tomatoes infused with wine and garlic, simply delicious. This is definitely a comfort food that you will want to serve all year round.
In Romania we used to make this dish without sausage (we used to call it French Potato Dish – Cartofi Frantuzesti) however, I got to taste the Hungarian version with sausage and I really liked it.
Since the Czech recipe for Chicken Paprikash was very popular, I thought to add the Hungarian recipe for this dish.
- 1 chicken (about 2.5 lbs)
- 1 large onion
- 3 tbsp oil
- 1 heaped tbsp ground paprika
- 2 bell peppers
- 1 large tomato
- 1.5 cups sour cream
- 1-2 tbsp flour
- Cut the chicken in pieces
- Heat the oil and cook the chopped onion. Remove from heat and add the ground paprika.
- Add the chicken pieces and fry for few minutes
- Reduce heat, season the chicken and cover with a lid
- Add the chopped peppers and tomato
- Add a little water and continue to cook.
- Combine the sour cream with flour and add when chicken is cooked. Simmer for another 4-5 minutes.
This recipe was sent by one of our Czech readers, Thank you Jana! this looks delicious and I can’t wait to try it.
I actually remember when I went to Prague, Czech Republic I tasted this and I absolutely loved it. Traditionally the Chicken Paprikash is served with bread dumplings so both recipes are provided below.
