Quick and cozy, chicken paprikash is a dish commonly made in Slovakia, though originally from Hungry, of chicken cooked in a creamy paprika sauce and served over pasta of some sort. This version is dairy free or full of dairy, whichever you prefer!
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!
Some other recipes to check out –
Segedinsky gulash, creamy sauerkraut stew, is another Hungarian influenced recipe that uses ordinary foods in a new-to-me way.
Eggplant forms the base of another creamy chicken pasta sauce.
And I’ll be you haven’t tried egg and raw carrot together, but it is amazing together in this 3 Ingredient Egg Salad/Spread.

This embodies so many of my favorite qualities in a good meal: cozy, easy, stew-like, bone broth, creamy, noodles, soft tender meat, paprika. I will make this and am looking forward to it. My daughter will LOVE the coconut cream version. Thanks for the lovely recipe, will share on FB tomorrow! 🙂

I made this tonight and my husband and I LOVED it! I used chicken breasts, turkey bone broth and full fat coconut milk. I was surprised it made a lovely brown sauce/gravy…delicious!
Thank you for sharing!

By the way, how did you make those perfect zucchini noodles?

Goodness, thank you. It really is quite simple to make and trust me, when I serve it to my family it doesn’t look quite as photogenic 🙂 I can’t quite believe you are a bona fide non-cook, I’ve seen photos of your bread. The zucchini noodles were made with a 3 euro julienne peeler, nothing fancy.

To be honest, I didn’t use it for much more than egg spread growing up. Definitely finding out about all its uses now!

My grandmother, who was from Stara Tura, used to make this, and it quickly became my most favorite dish, especially with halusky. This has become my family’s favorite meal, and one I serve a lot for company.

Yes, it’s so delicious and one I never knew before. A great one for company!
