Easy Chicken Paprikash

This simple dish reminds me of my student days when, feeling very sophisticated, we often dined out at an inexpensive Hungarian restaurant, close to the campus. Chicken Paprikash with dumplings was the house specialty and it has remained a sentimental favorite ever since. For convenience, I've simplified the sauce and dispensed with the dumplings. I like to serve this with hot buffered noodles and a salad, instead. -- SERVES 6

Make ahead:
This dish can be partially prepared the night before it is cooked. Complete Step 2, heating 1 tbsp (15 mL) oil in pan before softening onions. Cover and refrigerate overnight. The next morning, brown chicken (Step 1), or if you're pressed for time, omit this step and place chicken directly in stoneware. Continue cooking as directed in Step 3.

  • 1 tbsp (15 mL) vegetable oil
  • 3 lbs (1.5 kg) chicken pieces, skin on breasts, removed from legs and thighs
  • 2 medium onions, finel chopped
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • 1 tbsp (15 mL) sweet paprika
  • 1/2 tsp (2 mL) salt
  • 1/2 tsp (2 mL) cracked black peppercorns
  • 2 tbsp (25 mL) all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 cup (50 mL) condensed chicken broth (undiluted)
  • 1 can (1 0 oz/284 mL) condensed tomato soup
  • 1/2 cup (125 mL) sour cream
  • 1/2 cup (125 mL) half-and-half cream
  • 1/4 cup (50 mL) finely chopped dill
  • Hot buttered noodles

  1. In a skillet, heat oil over medium-high heat. Add chicken, in batches, and brown on all sides. Transfer to slow cooker stoneware.

  2. Reduce heat to medium. Add onions and cook until soft. Add garlic, paprika, salt, pepper and cook, stirring, for 1 minute. Sprinkle flour over mixture, stir well and cook for 1 minute. Add chicken broth and cook for 1 minute, until almost all evaporates. Remove pan from heat, stir soup into mixture.

  3. Pour mixture over chicken. Cover and cook on Low for 6 hours or on High for 3 hours, until juices run clear when chicken is pierced with a fork.

  4. In a bowl, mix together sour cream and cream. Add to chicken along with dill. Stir well and serve over hot buttered noodles.
