Recipe For Hungarian Chicken


We had this last night for dinner. Normally, I would put it over spaetzle, but there wasn’t time, so I made rice. The chicken was so moist and the sauce was great.

I recommend having some sweet Hungarian paprika in your spice cupboard for dishes like this. Save the common Spanish type for decorating your potato salad. You might want to have some smoked paprika, too. It adds a lovely flavor, too, in other dishes. The three different paprikas are not necessarily interchangeable.
