About Hungarian Chicken Paprika Recipe

This Hungarian Chicken Paprikash recipe has been handed down from generation to generation. It has been altered a little, but very little. For example, the original recipe called for browning the onions in shortening. We use vegetable oil, which is better for you than shortening. This recipe also uses a whole chicken, bones, and all. When you eat it, you have to be cautious and watch for small bones. You can use this Hungarian Chicken Paprika recipe with de-boned chicken, too.

Did you Know? The proper name for this recipe is Chicken Paprikash. But, most people shorten it to chicken paprika.

Chicken Paprika is usually served over Dumplings Nokedli (also called “Noodles Nokedli”)
