I came up with this recipe because I made Sharon 123's recipe for Paprika Oil and thought it would enhance this dish nicely. Of course you can use olive oil. I was going for a chicken paprikash dish without the fat of sour cream and add lots of veggies like carrots, mushrooms and onions. Makes it a light dish for Valentines Day--saves room to share a sensual dessert for two!

- 1 teaspoon seasoning salt, I used Flavored Salt Flavored Seasoned Salt
- 2 teaspoons sweet paprika or 2 teaspoons hot paprika, your choice

- 2 tablespoons silky tomato paste, to thicken and give that red valentine color to the dish
- 1 tablespoon fresh parsley
- 1 sprig fresh thyme
- Mix the first 3 ingredient together.
- Coat tenderized chicken with the flour mixture and let sit to absorb while stir frying veggies.
- In a very large non stick pan, heat oil and stir fry carrots, mushrooms, and onions 2 minutes over high heat add garlic stirring constantly for 3 more minute. Remove veggies and keep warm.
- In the same pan brown one side of chicken adding oil only if needed for 1 minute. Flip and top with the cooked veggies cooking for 2 minutes.

- Add herbs and stir in paste cook till the champagne is reduced in half and sauce is glistening.
- Season with salt and pepper if needed.
- Garnish with fresh herbs.

Lovely dinner! I omitted the carrots because I didn't have any and used smoked paprika. for the mushrooms I used a combination of chantrelles, baby bella and button mushrooms and I added some minced shallot with the onion. Instead of mincing the garlic I used shaved slices. So very good!! Served it over rice, but I think mashed potatoes would be even better. Made for Las Mistico Magicos Sirenas ZWT - 5.
Definitely enjoyed this dish! The flavors just all came together so nicely! We are not mushroom fans so I left that out but otherwise, followed the recipe exactly! Thanks for sharing! Made for Ali Baba Babes for ZWT5.
WOW, wow, wow! Rita, what a LOVELY recipe - I so enjoyed this, and it was even sensual to cook too, mainly due the odd slurp of champagne!! I cut my carrots into julienne strips and used local Morel mushrooms, I LOVE them! I used smoked paprika, pimenton, for a little kick and fresh thyme, majoram and parsley for the mix of herbs - also as a garnish too. I cut this recipe back to 1/4, as I am by myself at the moment.......I used one large chicken breast, pounded and cut into three pieces. There was no need for any other accompaniments, as I enjoyed this by itself with all the pan-fried veggies. Poetic food and a keeper. Made for the Whine and Cheese Gang for ZWT5 and France.
