I love finding new dishes with old ingredients. Ingredients that are already part of my kitchen, that are easily available in any grocery store, but combined in a way that I haven’t used before.

For example, chicken paprikáš (pronounced paprikash). Like most dishes that feature sweet paprika, this dish originates in Hungry. Hungry had a major influence in Slovakia during the Austro-Hungarian Empire, and naturally this carried over in the realm of food as well

I mean, who wants to turn down a dish of delicious? 

Other great features of this recipe is that any part of the chicken can be used, from chicken breast to drumstick to leftovers. And it’s super quick to pull together, which is always a winner in my books.

I’ve got a guest post over on The Nourishing Gourmet where the recipe is revealed. Go check it out and make it, you’ll be glad you did!
