Simple Supper: Chicken Paprikash



Want a super simple supper that is cheap to make? Something easy to prepare that everyone will LOVE??? Give Paprikash a try!



Paprikash is a classic Eastern European dish complete with light and fluffy dumplings to top it off. YUM!



Chicken Paprikash
4-5 Lbs. Chicken (you can use boneless, but bone-in gives it better flavor. I recommend thighs for this dish)

1 T. Paprika

1t. Salt

1/2 t. Ground Black Pepper

4 T. shortening or oil

1 Medium Onion, chopped

1/2 C water

8-16 oz. Sour Cream



Dumplings*

1 Egg

3C Flour

1 t. Salt

Water





Melt shortening in large skillet. Season both sides of chicken with paprika, salt and pepper. Place chicken in skillet and brown on both sides. Then add onion; drain off fat. Add the water, reduce heat and simmer for about 45 minutes until chicken is very tender.



Meanwhile, put a large pot of salted water on to boil. Combine egg, flour and salt to large mixing bowl and mix using wooden spoon or a stand mixer with a dough hook. Slowly add water, 1 teaspoon at a time, until dough is the consistency of thick, sticky cake batter. Drop by teaspoons into boiling water and allow to boil until they float- about 8 to 10 minutes. Drain.



Remove chicken from bones. Return chicken to pan and add sour cream to your liking. Add dumplings and serve.



Tips:

* My guys LOVE the dumplings, so I make 3 to 4 times the dumpling recipe when I make this.

~ Serve with salad!
