Looks like I've found a new paprikash recipe! This was wonderful...served with spaetzle! Thanks!

I followed this almost to the letter. I used twice as much pepper with the flour and added some fresh garlic to the onion. When it was done and I tasted it it seemed kind of bitter and slightly bland. I ended up adding a little onion powder, pepper and about 1/2 tsp sugar. This helped a little, but not enough. My husband seemed to like it, but he'll eat anything I put on top of spaetzle! The chicken was very tender. After a little more tweaking I may try this again.

Easy to make and the chicken was moist and tender once I finally got it to cook through. Mine took about twice as long as the recipe stated. I added 1/2 tsp salt to the chicken and sauteed 1 cup fresh mushrooms and 1 tsp minced garlic with the onions, but other than that made as directed and it was good. Thanks for posting.
