Tired of eating the same, bland types of food around you? Need something to give you a little boost. Some new flavors to taste……

I’m not selling anything, I’m simply stating that I want you to experience the extreme pleasure of enjoying “authentic Hungarian cuisine,” so I’m sharing one of my all-time favorite meals while growing up. It’s easy to make and you will have the whole family begging you for more.

It is a simple weeknight meal and it takes about an hour to prepare.  Because the paprika plays a central role in the flavor of the dish, please be sure to use real Hungarian Sweet Paprika.

Authentic Hungarian Chicken Paprikas with Nokedli

Authentic Hungarian Chicken Paprikas with Nokedli

What You Need

For Paprikas:

  • 2-3 lbs chicken thighs-bone in
  • salt and pepper
  • 2 large onions chopped
  • 1 green bell pepper
  • 1/4 cup paprika
  • 1 cup chicken stock
  • 1/2 cup sour creme
  • 1 tbsp flour

For Nokedli:

  • 1 cup flour
  • 2 large eggs

What You Need To Do:

– Heat a heavy pot, add some oil to the bottom and add the chicken.

– Fry until well browned on both sides.

– Transfer the chicken then onto a plate and add the onions and bell peppers.

– Add the paprika and continue to fry for 2 minutes until you can smell the fragrance.

– Add the chicken stock and return the chicken to the pot. Turn to medium low and let simmer – covered – until the chicken is very tender and falls off the bone.

Now to make the Nokedli:

Put the flour in the bowl and add eggs, one at a time, mixing together.  Also, bring a large pot of water to boil.  Let the mixture rest, while the chicken is cooking.

The easiest way to make the dumplings is to use a potato ricer, fitted with a plate that has big holes spaced far apart.

Simply load the dough and extrude into the boiling water.  You will know when the dumplings are done because they will float up to the top.

Use a large spoon to transfer them into a bowl and add a little butter to make it nice and rich.

Now the fun part: add the sour cream to the meat mixture; this allow is to become somewhat creamy.  Stir to thicken.

You now may serve your dish along with some pickled goods to really get your taste buds rocking.

Remember the Nokedli goes on the bottom and the Chicken Paprikas goes on top!

Jo Etvagyat!  is what we say.
