An easy, quick dinner that I often make on busy weeknights. There is nothing like the heavenly scent of paprika slowly simmering into chicken! This goes very well with pasta or rice. from original at

I prepared this for supper this evening and enjoyed every bite! I prepared exactly according to s'kat's directions for perfect results! Don't be skimpy on the spices. You won't be sorry! The aroma is wonderful while cooking! Thank you, s'kat, for sharing this recipe!

S'kat, this was wonderful! I used real Hungarian Paprika (sweet) for this. Next time I'll be brave and try it with the hot! I served this over a bed of egg noodles. Pure comfort food!

True story: I made this tonight, bringing my sons plate to the dining table then returning to the kitchen to grab mine. Before I could even grab my plate, he was in the kitchen! He yelled out "woohoo!". Scared me! "What!" "It's really good. Really!" I had to agree. This is wonderful. My son deemed it: Grandma food. which means its even good enough to make for my mom! Quick, easy, smelled wonderful and tastes even better. Thanks so much! :)
