From where chicken paprikash came from:

Chicken paprikash originated in Hungary and is the country’s national dish. Traditionally, it’s made with chicken thighs cooked in an awesome creamy sauce and served over egg noodles or mashed potatoes.


– 1 tablespoon of olive oil

– 2 large boneless chicken breasts, cut into cubes

– 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder

– 2 tablespoons sweet paprika

– 1 tablespoon onion powder

– 1/2 teaspoon salt

– 1/4 teaspoon black pepper

– 2 cloves garlic, minced

– 2 cups of chicken stock

– 1/4 cup sour cream

– 2 tablespoons chopped fresh parsley for garnish.


  1. Heat the olive oil in a slightly large skillet over medium heat. Add chicken cubes and cook until golden brown on all sides.
  2. Add garlic powder, paprika, onion powder, salt, and some pepper to the pan and stir to combine once the chicken is golden. Cook for an additional two minutes to allow spices to bloom in flavor.
  3. Add minced garlic and stir into the mixture. Let cook one minute more before pouring in chicken stock. Bring to a boiling level, then reduce heat and simmer until liquid has reduced by half or has thickened, about 10 minutes.
  4. When the liquid has reduced, turn off the heat and stir in sour cream until combined. Serve warm with your favorite sides, garnished with parsley if desired.

Tips and Tricks:
