There’s something about the paprika in traditional Hungarian sauces that I really love. The sweet paprika gives the dish a real warmth, and it makes it into the ultimate comfort food meal.

Chicken Paprikash takes juicy, bone-in chicken thighs and braises them in a sauce made out of chicken stock, some tomato paste, paprika, and sour cream. It’s incredibly rich and silky when it’s finished. I like to serve everything over a bed of perfectly cooked egg noodles. It’s great on a cold day.

First, you’re going to want to sear the chicken thighs in oil and butter, to lock in moisture and encourage even cooking. The oil helps to get a crisp on the thighs and the butter adds flavor.

Once the chicken has been seared, you remove it from the pot while you saute onions and the create richness with the sauce by adding flour and tomato paste.

Then, you’ll add the chicken stock, paprika, salt, and pepper. The sour cream is stirred in, and when everything comes to a boil, the chicken thighs get added back to the pot.

The chicken cooks in the sauce while you make the noodles and when the chicken is cooked you top the noodles with the chicken and spoon on the luscious sauce.

I know you’re going to go crazy for this one.
