Chicken Paprikash Recipe Comfort Food Gluten Free
We eat a lot of chicken at our house. I like to prepare it many different ways. This Chicken Paprikash recipe is Hungarian in origin and an absolute favorite of all chicken dishes in our kitchen. Chicken Paprikash has a wonderful smoky flavor from the smoked paprika that I use. You can also do this with Hot Hungarian Paprika or Sweet Hungarian Paprika. My preference is for the Smoked Paprika because the smoky flavor is a lovely addition to this dish. You can serve it over rice, noodle or potatoes. I have done all three.
I used to prepare this Chicken Paprikash recipe with mushrooms but have had to start leaving them out because my daughter developed an allergy to mushrooms. For you, I have included the mushrooms in the recipe. Also!! This chicken paprikash recipe is gluten free. If you are not on a gluten free diet, then just substitute regular all purpose flour for the gluten free flour.
If you are looking for something to do with your leftover turkey, this is the perfect recipe for you! Just substitute your leftover turkey for the boneless skinless chicken breasts! This is awesome with turkey! And, not the same casserole you’re bound to be eating for a week after the holiday dinner.
- 2 Boneless Skinless Chicken Breasts
- 1/2 Onion, Sliced
- 1/2 LB Mushrooms, Sliced
- 1 Garlic Clove, Crushed
- 2 TBSP Gluten Free Flour
- 1/2 C White Wine
- 1 1/2 C Chicken Broth
- 1/2 Sour Cream
- 1 TBSP Olive Oil
- 1 TBSP Butter
- 1 TBSP Smoked Paprika
- 1 TSP Smoked Paprika
- Kosher Salt
- Black Pepper
Cut chicken into bite size pieces. Melt butter in olive oil over medium heat. Brown chicken in butter/olive oil mixture. Sprinkle salt, pepper and 1 TSP Smoked Paprika over chicken while it is browning.
Once chicken begins to brown add sliced onions. When onions begin to soften add mushrooms and cook until soft. Add crushed garlic and cook for one minute.
Sprinkle flour over everything in pan and stir until mixed in. Add wine and stir. Begin adding chicken broth stirring until all is incorporated.
Lower heat and add sour cream, stirring until combined.
Serve over rice, potatoes or noodles
Note: If you don't have sour cream then substitute 2 ounces of cream cheese. Cut Cream cheese into small cubes and stir until melted.
So, what do you think? You game for some good old fashioned comfort food straight from Hungary? I’m hungry just reading it again! (Lame joke, I know) Let me know what you think of the chicken paprikash recipe… smokey or spicy for you?
