Paprika Chicken

By 12:28 PM , ,

Holy smokes! I sat down this morning to write this post and realized its been 20 days since we posted anything on here. In our defense, August has been crazy! We spent 3 days in San Diego for work and came home for about 6 hours and then have been in St. Maarten for the past 10 days (don't worry - we'll be doing some restaurant reviews soon!).

I actually made this dish right before we left for San Diego, and it was a real winner with both of us. I took a recipe for a pork version of this out of a cookbook The Big Book of One Pot that the Husband had picked up a year or so ago, and adapted it to our tastes.

This is a great weeknight meal. It's pretty hearty and comforting, and so while I made it at the beginning of August, it is more suited for the Fall or Winter.  The paprika actually gives this meal a good punch of flavor and spice.  The sour cream (and I used fat free) creates a creaminess that gives the dish richness.

I served this in bowls over brown rice. White rice, polenta or mashed potatoes would also work well, but you definitely need some kind of carb/starch to soak up the sauce.

Paprika Chicken

1 1/2 lbs boneless skinless chicken breasts or tenderloins, cut into bite size pieces
2 tbsp butter
2 tbsp olive oil
1 onion, chopped
1 1/4 tbsp paprika
2 1/2 tbsp all purpose flour
1 1/4 cups chicken stock
4 tbsp Marsala, dry sherry or dry white wine
6 oz button mushrooms, sliced
2/3 cup light of fat free sour cream
salt & pepper, to taste

Heat the butter and oil in a large skillet or pan.  Add the chicken and cook over medium heat, stirring for 5-6 minutes, or until browned. Transfer to a plate with a slotted spoon.

Add the chopped onion to the pan and cook, stirring occasionally, for 5 minutes, or until softened.  Stir in the paprika and flour. Cook, stirring constantly, for 2 minutes.  Gradually stir in the stock and bring to a boil, stirring constantly.

Return the chicken to the pan. Add the Marsala/sherry/white wine and mushrooms.  Season to taste with salt and pepper. Cover and simmer gently for 20 minutes. Stir in the sour cream and serve.

  1. Hi! You had posted on my blog "Finding Delicious" so I wanted to check yours out! It seems like we have many of the same interests: Ina and Martha are two of my favs. I used to pretend I was Martha Stewart when I was super small. This recipe looks tasty and also transformable for other cultures. I might add a few Indian spices like clove and cinnamon sticks.
