Guys, last week I tried my hand at this very flavorsome Hungarian dish – Chicken Paprikash.
The Hungarians just love paprika, and I can understand why! This really came out super delicious and it almost had a sweet and salty combination going. Normally chicken pieces are browned and smothered in a sauce made with loads of peppers, paprika and sour cream. Then it is served with dumplings or egg noodles.
Mine is a different version. Just a bit.
I used seasoned chicken breast fillets, cut them in strips and grilled it separately from the sauce. The sauce was made by combining two steps. First I decided to sauté onion until it had caramelized. It had to be super sweet. I added that to the finished tomato – paprika sauce. The sauce was made up of sautéed green, red and yellow pepper, tinned tomatoes and a spice combination of paprika, cumin and fresh thyme with loads of black pepper.
Out. Of. This. World.
I tell you, with a tin or two of chopped tomatoes in your pantry – you can never run out ideas to cook dinner. It is an instant pasta sauce, tomato base for pizzas, cook in sauce for meats and a base for salsas. Have it in your pantry people. Just have it. I use it all the time. Hope you try Chicken Paprikash this week! Lets connect ok?
