    HeatherFeather's Note:

    This is a favorite family meal I serve often during the chilly winter months. Warm, comforting, and fairly easy to fix. Purists beware -while this may remind some of vaguely of a Hungarian Paprikash dish, this is NOT at all claiming to be a traditional recipe - just a comforting chicken dish in a creamy, red sauce that I like to serve over steamed dumplings. You may also serve this over buttered egg noodles, if you choose. If you use fresh mushrooms in this, I recommend peeling off their outer skin first so they do not release so much water.

    Ingredients:

    Servings:

    Units: US | Metric

    Directions:

    1. 1
      Lightly dust chicken chunks with some flour- just enough to coat.
    2. 2
      Set a large nonstick stock pot on medium-high heat and add a tsp or two of oil (a little more if your pan is not nonstick)- just enough to prevent sticking.
    3. 3
      Sauté chicken in the pan just to brown lightly on all sides- not to cook all the way through yet.
    4. 4
      Remove from pan using a slotted spoon and set in a covered dish to keep warm.
    5. 5
      Add onions and mushrooms to the pan and sauté until lightly browned, adding another tsp of oil only if needed.
    6. 6
      Add tomato soup (undiluted), then fill the soup can halfway with water and add that water to the pan.
    7. 7
      Stir in sour cream, the bay leaf, 1/2 tsp salt, 1/4 tsp black pepper (or to taste), and 2 tsp of paprika, either sweet or spicy (in this I prefer the sweet)- your choice.
    8. 8
      Add chicken chunks back to the pan, stir, cover pan, and lower heat and let simmer approximately 30-45 minutes, or until the chicken is cooked all the way through and is tender (meanwhile, start cooking your dumplings/noodles).
    9. 9
      Check the seasonings, adding a bit more salt, pepper, and/or paprika only if needed.
    10. 10
      Remove bay leaf and serve ladled over freshly cooked dumplings or hot buttered egg noodles in bowls.

      After browning the chicken,fresh mushrooms,onions,& garlic I just had to add the garlic, I put it into a crockpot with rest of ingredients. I doubled the paprika and pepper. Very Very good!

      This is super good! I did it on the stovetop. I used fresh mushrooms and served it over wide egg noodles. Lots of flavor, very easy to make. All Im added was a salad and bread. This one's a keeper! Thanks HeatherFeather!!

      I gave it 5 stars, hubby gave it 4 stars. This was very easy to make. I was done with prep and cooking and cleaning up all within an hour. The flavor was nice and the sauce was delicious. Hubby thought it was missing something - like hot pepper or something like that. Next time I make it, I might add a few dashes of tabasco, some cayene pepper and another teaspoon of paprika, along with an additional bay leave. Since he doesn't like mushrooms, I left those out and added garlic instead. Also, I used a whole onion (finely choped). The chicken was was so moist and delicious. I served this over wide yolk-free noodles. I cooked up about 8 to 9 ounces and it was the perfect amount for the batch of sauce. I am actually eating leftovers right now and enjoying it very much. I have a microwave in my office and everyone keeps popping their head in to tell me my lunch smells wonderful. Thanks Heatherfeather - this is a keeper!
