I thought this unique version of Chicken Paprikash was delicious. I had never had this dish with orange juice and peas in it before and thought these ingredients complimented the dish very nicely. Easy to prepare,clear instructions, filling, and tasty results. Notes: I used real sherry rather than cooking sherry (which I find too salty) and I also used freshly squeezed orange juice rather than the concentrate, as that was all I had on hand. I would repeat these changes as everything worked out perfectly. (See photo).
This is a truely terrific dish. I followed the recipe exactly and wouldn't even dream of changing a thing next time I prepare this. I didn't even end up with leftovers which is unusual around our place. It was quick to prepare cook and eat too. I started preparing at 5pm and by 6pm we were finished eating. Yummy. Thanks sharing your recipe!
