1/2 teaspoon freshly ground Black Pepper
2 tablespoons Canola Oil
1 tablespoon Butter
4 cup Onions, finely diced
1 pinch of Sugar
3/4 cup Red Pepper, diced
3/4 cup Green Pepper, diced
2 tablespoons Tomato Paste

Recipe Directions for Paprika Chicken

  1. Rinse and pat dry chicken pieces. Season with pinch salt and pepper.

  2. Heat oil and butter in a large, heavy casserole or Dutch oven over medium heat. Add onions and sprinkle with sugar. Cook, stirring frequently, until the onions are very soft and light brown, 10 to 15 minutes.

  3. Stir in peppers, tomato paste, paprika and crushed red pepper. Add the chicken stirring gently into the onion mixture. Sprinkle with marjoram and add stock. Cover the pot with a tight-fitting lid and simmer over medium-low heat until the chicken is very tender, about 50 minutes.

  4. Just before the chicken is done, whisk sour cream, flour and pinch salt in a small bowl until smooth.

  5. When the chicken is done, remove to a plate. Stir the sour cream mixture into the sauce; bring back to a simmer and cook, stirring, until the sauce coats the spoon.

  6. Reduce heat to low, return the chicken to the sauce and reheat 1 minute.

  7. Serve garnished with parsley, dill and/or chives, if desired.
