Veronica's Hungarian Chicken Paprikash/Paprikas

Recipe by Oolala

Veronica Karlan, my parents' friend, is a lovely Hungarian woman who graciously sent me her recipe when I told her I like to cook! I was salivating when she was describing this dish! Serve with dumplings, mashed potatoes or orzo. I have made this with egg noodles too. * Easy on the paprika as it can be quite piquant. I may double the sauce because I like a lot of sauce.

Really good. Thank you for posting. I used BL/SL breasts, and saute'd garlic with the onions, but other than that, right on. Reaally good sauce, especially if you like onions. I was wary of a tbsp of paprika, but it works well. Thanks again.
