Yummy Chicken Paprika Recipe

I have several go-to chicken recipes, it depends on the cut of chicken that I have and what I’m feeling like making but this particular recipe is one of my favorites. The Big Book of Casseroles by Maryana Vollstedt. For this recipe I follow it almost exactly (will note the couple of things I add/change).

Chicken Paprika

  • ¼ cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 chicken (3 to 3½ lbs) cut into serving pieces {I use 2 packs of bone in chicken thighs from Costco and remove the skin}
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 2 tablespoons vegetable oil
  • 1 cup chopped yellow onion
  • ½ cup chopped green bell pepper {I use orange, red or yellow since I never buy green bell peppers}
  • {I add a couple of cloves of minced garlic too, but we like garlic}
  • 1 tablespoon Hungarian paprika
  • freshly ground pepper to taste
  • 1½ cups chicken stock {I use one can of Swanson’s chicken broth}
  • 1 cup sour cream {I sometimes use plain Nancy’s yogurt if I’m out of sour cream}

Return chicken to Dutch oven; cover and bake until chicken is no longer pink in the center, about 50 minutes. Blend in sour cream and bake, uncovered, 10 minutes longer.

All done!

I usually make rotini noodles or rice to go with it and it is SO good!!

Some of my favorite recipes come out of this cookbook and it is pretty easy to find it used very inexpensively, so if you like cookbooks I definitely suggest getting it. There is not a bunch of pictures, which I do like pictures, but everything is very simply laid out and easy to follow along.
