Chicken Paprika

The main course for the Seniors’ Cooking Club meet is Chicken Paprika. It is made with skinless and boneless chicken breasts or thighs meat which is leaner and less hassle to eat. Arkensen likes boneless chicken while I prefer to cook chicken with bone. A dish cook with bone in is more tasty. That’s why chicken broth is made from chicken bones and not with chicken breast.


The Chicken Paprika is a very saucy dish and will be great with steamed rice. It’s not spicy despite it’s made with lots of paprika.


  • 2 lbs boneless skinless chicken breasts or thighs
  • 4 tablespoons flour
  • 2 teaspoons salt
  • 6 tablespoons paprika
  • 1/4 cup vegetable oil
  • 2 tablespoons butter or margarine
  • 1 large onion, finely chopped
  • 2 garlic cloves, crushed
  • 2 teaspoons chopped parsley
  • 2 (14 oz) cans chicken broth
  • 1 (6 oz) can tomato paste
  • salt and pepper to taste

    Oh yeah! Totally agree – it’s better “bone in”. Let the rubes and the noobs go for the breast. More thighs, drums, wings, etc for the rest of us… 🙂

    Hi – I was wondering if you were aware that another website has taken this recipe and posted it in its entirety, along with your photos.

    It was pointed out on another website that is using content from other sites in this fashion. They don’t seem to refer back to the source site nor do these posts seem to come from anyone connected with the originating website.

    Hi Robert:
    Thanks for letting me know. I had sent them a note to remove the articles. I really do not know how else to handle this. Any advice? Good thing I had watermarked all my pictures so that is blatantly obvious.

    Hi, Ben;

    I don’t personally know any way to prevent this kind of activity.

    However, I was given a link to an article that explains how to code PHP to thwart hotlinking of images. It looks as if once you get this to work you can at least stop the bandwidth drain from hotlinked images. Unfortunately, I don’t code PHP so can’t vouche for its effectiveness. If you’re interested or curious, you can find the article here:

    Best of luck!

    Any Preferences on what kind of Paprika. I have several kinds, I guess I will experiment and probably mix some smoked spanish sweet with some Hungarian Hot.
