We wanted an easy-to-make chicken paprikash recipe that would produce succulent chicken; a nice balance of heat, spice, and aromatics; and a rich, flavorful sauce with paprika at center stage. We pared down the ingredients in our paprikash recipe to chicken thighs, onion, bell pepper, white wine, tomatoes, and sour cream, then added the paprika twice: once while sautéing the vegetables to let its flavor bloom, then once again after adding the sour cream to finish the dish.

Serves 4

The stew can be made in advance through step 2. To keep the sour cream from separating from the sauce, it’s best added to the reheated stew just before serving. Rice or mashed potatoes are good accompaniments, but buttered egg noodles were tasters’ favorite. If you want to try them, cook 8 ounces of egg noodles, then drain and toss them with 2 tablespoons butter.
