    BoxO'Wine's Note:

    The perfect Hungarian comfort food. Serve over my posted nokedli recipe. This recipe has been passed down in my family for generations. I use Better Than Bouillon chicken base to make the broth.

      Very creamy, delicious, and mildly spicy, a dish that is true comfort food, just as advertised. I did wait to add the paprika until the onion was tender, since the parika tends to burn easily. I would definitely make this again! Thanks!

      This is SO so good. So good. Tastes a lot like the version I had in Budapest... I was amazed at being able to replicate that at home. I used bone-in chicken thighs, plenty of salt, and increased the onion and paprika a bit. A PERFECT recipe that I'll make again and again. I wouldn't change a thing. This is one of those dishes that you keep thinking about long after you've made it.

      This was delicious and very moist! However you certainly don't want to cover the chicken with broth as it'd make way too much liquid. Just use the two cups of broth and it'll be fine.
