Chicken Paprikash | | Chicken stew with onions, carrots and tomatoes, served atop egg noodles, and dressed with a sour cream sauce. | #recipe #dinner #chicken #noodles

HI, everyone!!! *waving*

To those celebrating, HAPPY EASTER! Christ is Risen! I hope you are having a wonderful and blessed Easter Day.

I made something for you. It’s really delicious. And it has my name written all over it!

Why, you ask?

Because there’s chicken, there’s veggies, there’s paprika, and because, quite simply, I grew up on Chicken Paprikash.

In my life, when talking about a certain food, or dish, it usually (like, 99% of the time) is connected to my family. I know this is not unique to me – I’m pretty sure you can all relate in one way or another.

Case in point; we have Grandma’s Rustic Egg Salad in one corner, or in this case, in one blog post, and mom’s Chicken Paprikash in the other.

Not sure if you’ll ever see me saying “my father’s ________ fill in the blank dish”, but it’s all good. Apparently, not everyone was made to cook.


You know what’s cool about this dish? It looks like something you had to slave over, but in reality, most of the time it is on the stove, cooking. The only thing you’re responsible for is chopping. And adding a spice, or two… and you really don’t have to tell anyone just how easy it is to make.

    I was excited to make this recipe but unfortunately it didn’t work out. I halved the recipe but I guess I shouldn’t have halved the liquid – when I came down after an hour to make the sauce, the pot had completely dried out and and veggies were burnt and stuck to the pan. The chicken had a nice flavor but it was disappointing to have to eat it dry.

    This looks like something my family would easily dig into. It also looks like a great use for the crushed tomatoes I put up last fall–but probably I should use half of the quart jar, or double the recipe.

    I am loving the prep time on this dish Kate! 10 minutes and it really doesn’t get much easier for something so full of deliciousness. Happy Easter to you as well! 🙂

  4. Sarah @ SimplyScrumptiousBySarah

    Happy Easter to you too Kate! This recipe looks so yummy! I have never had chicken parikash…I will have to try it!

  5. Terra

    What a lovely dish! I love recipes that remind us of home, or are our families treasures. I have recipes my Grandma makes that make me so happy! I have made sure to get her recipes, for future love of course! Hugs, Terra

    Oh yeah……now your talk’n! Love, love, love and a family favourite growing up. Sometimes when there was no egg noodles in the house my mother would use plain rice. It was just as good.

    Happy Easter to you and your family, Kate! Ahh…Chicken Paprikash. So very yummy and a childhood favorite. Grew up on it as well…an heirloom recipe (from my German-Hungarian great grandmother) with authentic Hungarian dumplings! You have inspired me to share my family recipe. Thanks for sharing your recipe! xo

    Happy Easter to you too. Really tempting and beautiful recipe.

    This dish looks like a chickenoholic’s dream come true.

    Keep them coming.

    You´re right, I do have everything in my fridge. I do love this recipe too, and with noodles is wonderful! The flavor of our childhood are so great as grown-ups. Happy Easter Kate!

    He is Risen, indeed!

    What a wonderful chicken paprikash. I made a good pork version last year served over butter crumbed egg noodles that looks very similar to yours. I posted it here and need to make it again but with chicken.

    My dad made TWO dishes successfully, a white bean soup with pork hocks and a baked mashed white bean casserole over salted cod. I’ve made the first one and was happy with the results but the latter, has eluded me. I wish he (and my mom) were around so I could ask them for additional cooking help and so I could serve them the results.

    Happy Easter to you and your adorable family!
    I’m not a very big chicken fan (mainly because I never know what to do with it – aside from tossing it into a vat of grease!), but this dish looks beautiful, and delicious!

    Thanks for sharing another family recipe! xo
