Not sure how to rate this because this is not chicken paprikash. True Hungarian paprikash uses only salt, black pepper, garlic and plenty of diced onions to season the dish. Also chicken broth, flour and sour cream and of course chicken and oil to brown the chicken. I'm Hungarian and I was taught by my Mom and Aunt both from Hungary. Sorry

Very good. Some alterations I made was to sub the Worcestershire sauce (we don't like it) for Ketjap Manis, the sour cream for soy cream (we don't mix meat and milk) and vegetable oil, not bacon fat. Furthermore, the slurry was not needed as the sauce was thick enough. Have made it several times and it always comes out great. Sometimes I also add some sliced fresh mushrooms. Thanks for posting.

Fabulous Connie! Even Picky Boy liked this dish so that is a compliment indeed! I made exactly as written and I wouldn't change anything about it. Originally I was going to do step by step photos but some of the pics weren't so great. Thanks for the delicious recipe it is going in my "favourites" book.
