    Not sure how to rate this because this is not chicken paprikash. True Hungarian paprikash uses only salt, black pepper, garlic and plenty of diced onions to season the dish. Also chicken broth, flour and sour cream and of course chicken and oil to brown the chicken. I'm Hungarian and I was taught by my Mom and Aunt both from Hungary. Sorry

    Very good. Some alterations I made was to sub the Worcestershire sauce (we don't like it) for Ketjap Manis, the sour cream for soy cream (we don't mix meat and milk) and vegetable oil, not bacon fat. Furthermore, the slurry was not needed as the sauce was thick enough. Have made it several times and it always comes out great. Sometimes I also add some sliced fresh mushrooms. Thanks for posting.

    Fabulous Connie! Even Picky Boy liked this dish so that is a compliment indeed! I made exactly as written and I wouldn't change anything about it. Originally I was going to do step by step photos but some of the pics weren't so great. Thanks for the delicious recipe it is going in my "favourites" book.

    What a great recipe! I made it almost as written using chicken thighs but when it came to adding the wine I only had red available. It worked very well and I did not and would not make any other changes. Perfect as is!<br/>Thanks for sharing Connie.

    This is a delicious paprikash! I added a bit more hot sauce because we like things spicy, and I didn't need to add any cornstarch to thicken the sauce, but other than that I made it as written. Nice and flavorful. Thanks for sharing!


I am a mother of 5, grandmother of 2. I have been cooking for 45 years and it is still my passion. I am married to a chef. My oldest son is also a chef. All my kids are major foodies. We really enjoy getting together for family holidays etc. And it is always all about the food and love & laughter. The baby in the icon is my 4 year old grandson, Oliver. The pic is me on my 59th b'day, my husband gave me those gorgeous pearls and we had a great evening. I also must mention the other lover in my life the very hairy, extemely beautiful, totally black cat named Spike; actually he is afraid of his own shadow so we gave him a tough guy name. One of my sons was a soldier in the Canadian military. I pray for all of our children who so bravely defend our way of life. I try to do something kind everyday. It really is nice to be nice. I detest pettiness, two faced people and dishonesty. I try to treat everyone I touch with the same respect I would like. Also I try not to sweat the small stuff. This is pretty much my survival philosophy. <img src="" border="0" alt="Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting"> <img src="" border="0" alt="Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket"> <img src="" border="0" alt="Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket"> <img src=""> <img src="" border="0" alt="Photobucket"> <img src="">
