Polish Chicken Paprikash - Carol Zaleski Wright

Carol Zaleski Wright -"100% Polish - my Mom used to make this all the time and now as I'm really thinking about this, one of the favorite side dishes for this was Haluski - you know, cabbage & egg noodles."

  • 1 whole chicken cut up or can use 4 - 6 boneless chicken breasts;
  • 1 small onion,
  • 1 clove garlic,
  • 3 - 4 tbsp olive or vegetable oil;
  • paprika,
  • 1 16 oz can tomatoes, cut up,
  • 1 green pepper cut anyway you want,
  • salt & pepper to taste,
  • 1/2 pint sour cream.

Brown onion & garlic in oil; sprinkle chicken with paprika and brown evenly. 
Add tomatoes, green pepper, salt & pepper, cover and low heat for one hour.

In last five minutes,
take some of the liquid from the chicken and add to the sour cream until smooth - keep adding until mixture is smooth and then add all back to chicken.
Keep temp low to avoid curdling.

Serve with mashed potatoes or rice.

  1. Polish Chicken Paprikash - By Carol Zaleski Wright ....My review by Noreen Stephenson

    Tonight I cooked this recipe. I made it in my new slow cooker timed it for 5 hours on high 4 hrs is probably enough...Husband is 50% Hungarian also. He said he hasn't smelled anything like this dish since his Hungarian Grandmother made it when he 10. You were right Carol...don't spare the Paprika...I added light sour cream 16 oz at the end and served it with Mashed potatoes and peas. Thanks Carol...the last timne I had a dinner this good was when my Hungarian Grandma on Mom's side cooked it. "It's great to go home again"...FYI: Bill I found the recipe so easily on Thanks my Dear friend Carol Wright..
