My Aunt Jane gave me her Hungarian Chicken Paprikash recipe. Chicken Paprikash is a moist and tender chicken dish that is easy to prepare. The chicken and the sauce takes on the smoky, peppery flavor of the paprika.
Aunt Jane's Hungarian Chicken Paprikash recipe uses a whole cut up chicken. Jeff and I prefer chicken breasts, so I've made the recipe with whole chicken breasts as well as cut up chicken breasts. You can use a whole chicken, or whatever parts of the chicken you prefer.
Serving homemade noodles with the Chicken Paprikash was Aunt Jane's recommendation. Homemade noodles are delicious and make a tasty side dish with Chicken Paprikash. The sauce is delicious on the noodles, too!
I told my cousin Debbie, Aunt Jane's daughter, that I was making Chicken Paprikash. Debbie reminded me that Aunt Jane cooked for everyone, but usually ate hot dogs when everyone else was eating whatever she prepared for the meal. Aunt Jane loved hot dogs!
I altered Aunt Jane's recipe slightly so that it is a dairy-free version. If you are not concerned with being dairy-free, then use butter instead of olive oil to saute the onion and paprika, and use one cup of sour cream instead of the soy milk and vegan butter for the sauce.
I hope you enjoy!
