When people often think of Hungarian food they often think of either Hungarian Goulash or Chicken Paprika This recipe for Chicken Paprika, is my daughter’s favorite dish. Now that she is a young lady living on her own, she will always ask for this chicken when she visits. (How did she get old enough to live on her own?) Here’s a tip: Do not mistake the tins of HOT and SWEET paprika in your spice rack. Having made that mistake of not really reading the labels for the hot and sweet paprika when my daughter visited once, I quite careful now! The chicken was bit spicier than usual but it was still wonderful to eat. (She doesn’t like spicy foods.) This is NOT smoked paprika in this recipe. Smoked is yet another kind of paprika. My preference is to mix of Hot and Sweet Hungarian paprika in this dish. The small amount of Hot just gives it a bit more kick. Always cook to your taste preferences! It’s your dinner, adjust it. Mom only used the sweet paprika in hers and I love it that way also. Sweet or kicked up heat this dish a full of flavor and comforting. Grandmother
Super Simple Modern Style Homemade Chicken Soup One of my favorites things on a cool rainy day is a nice big steaming hot comforting bowl of homemade chicken soup. The aroma of chicken soup simmering takes me back to childhood. Mom made the best soups! There is always so much more flavor and nutrition in soups you make at home! Controlling the sodium is one of the important healthy improvements that can be done at home. That is important for everyone’s health. Soup is one of the easiest foods to prepare. This super simple modern style chicken soup doesn’t start out with a whole chicken. Yes, I can break a whole chicken down to make it, but it’s not my favorite thing to do. I love using chicken thighs with the bone in and skin on because there is a lot more flavor in those parts. Thigh meat doesn’t dry out as easily as white meat. Homemade is still the best flavored soup Once you prepare homemade soup, your palate will tell you there is no going back to canned soups. You get a ton more nutrition in homemade soups and other foods and it is made to your taste and health requirements too.
