Paprikás Csirke - Chicken Paprikash

Chicken Paprikash

Chicken paprikash is an emblematic dish in Hungary, where paprika plays a major role in a wide variety of recipes. We like serving it with poppy seed-egg noodles, but it’s equally delicious when served with spaetzle or boiled potatoes.


  • 6 chicken thighs
  • Salt and pepper, to taste
  • 3 Tbsp butter
  • 3 Tbsp olive oil or vegetable oil
  • 2 onions, chopped
  • 4 garlic cloves, chopped
  • 2 Tbsp Sweet Hungarian paprika
  • 1 Tbsp Hot Hungarian paprika or ½ tsp ground cayenne
  • 1 Tbsp flour
  • 2 Tbsp tomato paste
  • 1 diced, fresh tomato or ½ cup canned tomatoes
  • ½ cup fresh cream
  • Parsley to garnish
