Chicken Paprikash

Chicken Paprikash is a nice twist on the usual sautéed chicken. Tender slices of chicken, onions, and peppers in a creamy paprika seasoned sauce are served over hot cooked noodles. Chicken paprikash is flavorful without being overly spicy. Kid friendly and easy enough for a weeknight supper making it a perfect addition to your chicken recipe rotation.
Chicken is probably the most often cooked meat based protein at my house so I am always looking for new chicken recipes. If they are easy and can be cooked in a skillet those attributes make the recipes even better.

This month for The Secret Recipe Club I received the blog Searching for Spice. Corina is the cook behind the blog and like me she tends to enjoy new spices in cooking. She is also an international blogger based in the United Kingdom. Getting non American bloggers is both fun and challenging.

The first recipe that caught my eye was Cheese and Mushroom Pasties. Indian food is a new favorite of mine and as soon as I can visit the spice store in Atlanta I’ll be making potato and pea samosas.

I try at least one new chicken recipe every couple of weeks so when I saw Corina’s recipe for Chicken Paprikash with Homemade Tagliatelle I decided to give it a try minus the homemade noodles.

This chicken paprikash recipe will be a staple in my house from now on.
