Sofia’s Chicken Paprikash

Brilliant red paprika, the main seasoning in Hungarian cooking, gives this light version of chicken paprikash its color. Vary the heat by using hot, sweet or a combination of paprikas. Serve over whole-wheat egg noodles with a side of steamed broccoli and a cool fruit salad for dessert.

Serves 4

Prep Time 40 min

Total Time 40 min.

Ingredients

  • 1 pound boneless, skinless chicken breasts, trimmed, cut into 2-inch pieces
  • 1/4 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon freshly ground pepper
  • 1 tablespoon canola oil
  • 2 large green bell peppers, thinly sliced
  • 1 large onion,, halved and thinly sliced
  • 2 teaspoons hot or sweet paprika
  • 1/2 cup dry white wine
  • 1 1/2 cups canned crushed tomatoes
  • 1/2 cup reduced-sodium chicken broth
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • 1/4 cup reduced-fat sour cream
  • 2 tablespoon chopped fresh parsley

Cooking Directions

Step 1

Sprinkle chicken with salt and pepper. Heat oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add chicken and cook, turning occasionally, until browned, 3 to 5 minutes. Transfer to a plate.

Step 2

Add bell peppers and onion to the pan and cook, covered, over medium heat, stirring occasionally, until softened, about 5 minutes. Add paprika and cook, stirring, until fragrant, about 30 seconds. Add wine; increase heat to medium-high and cook, stirring, until mostly evaporated, about 1 1/2 minutes. Add tomatoes, broth and lemon juice; bring to a boil. Return the chicken and any accumulated juices to the pan; reduce heat to a lively simmer. Spoon some sauce over the chicken and cook, turning occasionally, until the sauce is reduced and the chicken is cooked through, 6 to 8 minutes.

Step 3

Remove from the heat; stir in sour cream. Sprinkle with parsley.
