Chicken Paprikash

On Friday night I was watching Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives on the Food Network and the show host Guy Fieri was visiting this Diner, I cannot remember where, but they made this dish called Chicken Paprikash.  According to wikipedia this is a Hungarian Chicken dish that is served with pasta and thickened with Sour Cream.

Okay, I am always up for a challenge so I set out to find a good recipe and I found one that uses a Crockpot, another bonus.  So here below is the recipe.  I made this last night and it came out pretty good, I need to tweak it a little but it was still good.  I served it with whole wheat spaghetti.

Chicken Paprikash
Serves 6
Cook time 5+ hours

1 1/2 cup water
5 lbs chicken pieces (I used split chicken breasts)
1 cup canned tomatoes (I used a half jar of pasta sauce cuz it’s all I had)
1 green bell pepper, chopped
1 small onion, sliced
2 tablespoons sweet or hot paprika
1 clove garlic, minced
1/2 teaspoon oregano (I used 1/2 teaspoon of Italian Seasoning)
salt and pepper to taste
1/4 cup all-purpose flour
1 cup sour cream


Put the water, chicken, tomatoes, green pepper, onion, paprika, garlic, salt, pepper, and oregano into the crock pot.  Stir to blend.  Cover the pot and cook on low for 9 or 10 hours until chicken is tender.

Remove chicken from the crockpot and skim fat from the remaining sauce.

Remove 1/4 cup liquid from the crock pot and allow to cool a bit.  Blend flour with the 1/4 cup cooled juices and return the flour mixture to the liquid in the crockpot.  Mix well and stir until thickened.

Blend in sour cream.  Return chicken to the pot and allow to heat through, but do not boil.  Serve on cooked noodles if desired.

Like I said, it came out pretty good.  I only cooked it for 5 hours in the crockpot and I assume the longer you cook it the better it will be.  Give it a try!
