Family Pleasing Chicken Paprika

READY IN: 40mins
Recipe by Mommy Diva

This is the recipe my Mom and I have made for years. I don't know where it originally came from, just that everyone seems to love it- I did growing up - and now my whole family does (always a plus to find a quick meal that my kids like that my hubby and I can enjoy eating too!!) Easy to round out with a green salad or veggie and roll or bread on the side. I have made this in a pinch for friends and they always rave thinking it took more time than it did to prepare. ;) Mushrooms are a great addition, simply add them in when adding the onions. I also like to stir in sautéed asparagus sometimes or frozen peas. ;)

This was very good. I added mushrooms, and served over rice. I added a bit more paprika than called for, which made the sauce a bit richer as well as darker red. I think this would also be good with smoked paprika, I may have to try that next time.
