Chicken Paprikash – A Soon To Be Favorite
I love Paprika, especially the Smoked Paprika you can find at your local market (Trader Joe’s smoked Paprika is my favorite). I add it to eggs, steak, just about anything when I’m in the mood for a little spice and a lot of flavor. My favorite thing to add it to is chicken and this chicken paprikash recipe will tell you why.. This recipe is super simple to cook and a really tender and moist chicken. You can find the original recipe here. I made a few changes to make it a little healthier but nothing to hurt the flavor!
Ingredients For Chicken Paprikash
3 eggs, beaten
1/2 cup water
2 1/2 cupsAlmond flour
2 teaspoons salt
1/4 cup butter
1 1/2 pounds skinless, boneless chicken pieces breasts
1 medium onion, chopped
1 1/2 cups water
1 tablespoon paprika (I use smoked
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon ground black pepper
2 tablespoons Almond flour
1 cup sour cream link is to a healthier homemade Sour Cream but you can use store bought
Fill a large pot with water and bring to a boil over high heat. In a large bowl, mix together the eggs, 2 teaspoons of salt, and 1/2 cup of water. Gradually stir in 2 1/2 cups of Almond flour to make a stiff batter. Using two spoons, scoop out some batter with one spoon and use the second to scrap off the spoonful of batter into the boiling water. Repeat until several dumplings are cooking. Cook dumplings for 10 minutes or until they float to the top; then lift from the water and drain in a colander or sieve. Rinse with warm water.
In a large skillet over medium-high heat, melt butter and add chicken; cook until lightly browned, turning once. Add onion to skillet and cook 5 to 8 minutes more. Pour in 1 1/2 cups of water, and season with paprika, salt, and pepper; cook 10 minutes more, or until chicken is cooked through and juices run clear. Remove chicken from skillet and keep warm.
Stir 2 tablespoons of Almond flour into sour cream; then slowly stir into the onion mixture remaining in the skillet. Bring the mixture to a boil, stirring constantly, and cook until thickened.
To serve, add dumplings to the sour cream/onion mixture, then spoon onto dinner plates adding a piece of chicken.
