½ cube butter
1 tsp. salt
1 onion, diced
1 green pepper, diced
2 cloves garlic, pressed
3 Tbsp. paprika
½ cup water
2 large tomatoes cut into wedges
6 boneless and skinless chicken breasts cut into bite size pieces
2 cups sour cream
3 Tbsp. flour
Sauté onions, green pepper and garlic in butter with salt. Take off heat and stir in paprika. Add chicken, tomatoes and water before returning to heat. Simmer 45 minutes covered, stirring regularly. In a separate bowl gradually stir flour into sour cream. When chicken mixture is done, slowly stir sour cream mixture into chicken stirring constantly to avoid lumps.
Serve over Galuska, rice or over your favorite pasta and garnish with sour cream.
“This is my ultimate favorite Hungarian dish, known as Paprikás Csirke in Hungary. However, I have modified it quite a bit; in Hungary they make this using a whole chicken, bone, skin, claws and all. In Hungary you can buy spicy paprika, which gives this a great kick. Sometimes I add a bit of cayenne pepper to spice it up.” – Patrice
