"I adapted this recipe from "The Pressure Cooker Gourmet", by Victoria Wise. You can substitute any kind of chicken pieces, bone-in or boneless. You would just need to adjust cooking time based on your choice. I actually leave the skin on, I'm weird and kind of like the skin, even when its "soggy"!"

"Loved this recipe and my husband declared it "excellent"! It was a taking off point for me because I like to use more veggies. I also substituted non-fat Greek yogurt for sour cream and served it over brown rice. Not sure why 3 1/2 to 4 lbs of chicken is supposed to feed only 4 people. I didn't brown the chicken to avoid drying it out. I diced a carrot and a parsnip and sauted them with the onion before adding the chicken. I used a can of tomatoes instead of fresh and layered thick shreds of green cabbage on top of the chicken before putting the top on the cooker. The cabbage was perfectly cooked, melting into the sauce but not overcooked -- no"cabbagey" smell. The chicken was fork tender but not dry. Delicious!"
"This turned out great! I pressure cooked a whole chicken, and hand shredded it to add back into the sauce. Turned out great. Served over noodles, and rice the next day as leftovers. Family loved it."
"I did carrots/parsnips/mushrooms, no cabbage, like the one reviewer, only with egg noodles. Was excellent, simple and fast!"
"As others suggested, mushrooms are really great w/ this dish. Also, if you have coconut oil, use it here!!! I used 1 tea of Szegeo Hungarian sweet paprika & 1 tea Mas Portell regular paprika and 1/2 tea of red pepper. Just right!! I have found over the years that recipes that call for paprika, that you spend a little extra a get the best the store has to offer. I guess this could pertain to alot of things but good paprika does make all the difference. So I never skimp on this quality item. Badia is also another good brand if you have trouble finding the above 2 items."
"This recipe was great, quick and easy to put together! My mum tried it and declared that it was time for her to finally get a pressure cooker. Next time will add garlic, but it was still very good as it was."
"Though it was a bit time consuming to make, we really enjoyed the flavor of this dish. I added carrots to the recipe to up the veggie content and served it over spaetzel instead of egg noodles. The chicken instructions were a little confusing as I wasn't sure whether "skinned" meant skin-on or skinless so I decided to leave the skin on to keep the chicken from drying out when I browned it. Overall, a nice recipe that I would make again."
"Second time that I had used my pressure cooker. This recipe was great. I added some carrots to it. Next time I will add more. Everyone loved it that tried it."
"This is a super recipe- The gravy with the egg noodles is amazing delicious! I had everything but the tomato, used a shot of ketchup and never missed a beat.
Thanks for a great recipe- family destroyed it!"
"I didn't follow it exactly, but it was oh so good! I used tomatoes that I had previously froze from my garden (so it was probably like triple the tomatoes). I also added some cabbage like a previous reviewer did. Also doubled the broth for extra sauce for my big family. I recently ordered some coconut oil for cooking and I used this instead of the cooking oil and let me just say...WOW! It made such an impact on the dish! It was so good. As I ate it I could imagine it being made with smoked salmon instead of chicken and including mushrooms. I think I will try that next time. (:"
"The sauce in this recipe is outstanding! This was my first time using a pressure cooker, and I was pleasantly surprised by how fast and easy it is. I used 4 bone in skinless thighs, and cooked them for 10 minutes. They were tender and perfectly cooked. I also subbed smoked paprika for half of the regular paprika, and loved the result. I'll definitely make again!"
"Excellent! I added mushrooms to mine and used boneless skinless thighs, but followed the recipe pretty much exactly (1 t. mild paprika and 1 t hot was my only change) and it turned out fantastic. Even the fussy 8 year old loved it. Definitely on the "do again" list! Thanks!"
"Awesome - my DH and I really loved this dish! Such a simple recipe turned out so beautifully! I didn't peel my tomato because I am lazy, but I don't think it made a discernable difference. I used fat free sour cream with a small amount of easy blending flour mixed in to augment the thickening of the sauce. This was really delicious and I will definitely make it again!"
"This was terrific!! I used 1/2 bullion cube and 1/2 cup of water instead of the broth (it's all I had on hand) and lowered the salt a little because of this. I only used only 2 drumsticks and 2 thighs since it's just me and my husband and me, I left the sauce the same which was great for extra for the noodles. I also used plain yogurt instead of sour cream since I live where there is no sour cream....i worked just fine. I will definitely make this again...very different, tastey, and easy. I think this could even be made in a regular pan with a tight lid, a little extra liquid and increased cooking time. Thanks for sharing!!!"
"yummy! just got my pressure cooker, & this sounded great. i messed up, as i was nervous about using the PC the 1st time, and didnt cook down the liquid before adding the sour cream and chicken back, so i just made a roux & added the liquid to it to temper the sour cream, and then let is simmer a bout 5 minutes. will def make it again! oh! and i also used german parika paste- as i dont know where to get hungarian paprika. thanks!"
"Take it from a Hungarian grandson, this is what it's supposed to taste like and this is what you want your kitchen to smell like. Spaetzle type noodles would be more traditional, but who's got the time? Don't miss out on trying this recipe because you think it's too spicy. If in doubt, make the paprika a 50/50, hot/regular mix. Szeged in the tin cans is a good brand. I made it with two large chicken breasts. Great leftovers that are better the second day.

"The best chicken recipe ever! I modified it a little bit, by not using the sour cream and I also used rice instead of noodles. LOVE IT! LOVE IT! You have to try it."
"Made this quick recipe and family loved it. The liquid was delicious and we ate the entire thing. Thank you!"
"Outstanding recipe! I added chopped carrots, celery and mushrooms sauteed in olive oil until tender. This was my first recipe using paprika. It was a very big hit with the family, especially with my hard to please 8 year old son."
"I was skeptical, because of such few ingredients. But this dish was very flavorful! The only thing I added was some cracked black pepper. It was great!"
