Chicken Paprikash

Crispy Noodle Cake & Ginger/Garlic Shrimp

I usually  shy away from crispy noodle cakes in asian restaurants because it can be a bit messy to eat when you are with company, but I love to prepare it at home, where I can use fork, knife, hands, chopsticks, or whatever else I need to pull it apart.
I actually prefer angel hair pasta for my noodle “pillows”, they fry up wonderfully crisp on the outside while staying soft and juicy at the inside. Today for lunch I topped them with an asian style shrimp preparation, but any “saucy” dish will fit, such as gizzard adobo, hungarian goulash, chicken paprikash, veal emince, etc.

Chicken Paprikash & Spaetzle

<

>
Paprikash is the national dish of Hungary. Which means that it has been prepared and eaten for many decades, by millions of people, in many restaurants and homes, in many different regions, with an infinite number of variations. So folks, relax, don’t call my house and say that this is not a real paprikash, because………….
Anyway, here is a version I prepared last week and, I might add, a pretty good and pretty pretty 🙂 version. >

Ingredients :

Chicken,  your favorite parts, I prefer legs
Sweet hungarian paprika,
Chilis,   finely chopped, some left whole for garnish (optional)
Tomatoes,   finely chopped
Garlic,   paste
Onions,    finely diced
Kosher salt,
AP flour,
Chicken stock,
Sour cream,

Method :

Saute chicken in fat until golden brown. Remove. Saute onions and garlic until fragrant. Add paprika, chopped chilis and flour and saute for a short time. (Careful, paprika burns easily !)  Add tomatoes, stock, whole chili’s and salt. Return chicken to pot, cover and braise slowly until chicken is cooked to an internal temperature of 162F. (Carry over heat will take it to a safe 165F). Remove chicken. At this point you have the option of straining the sauce or not. You also have the option of whisking in the sour cream or not. If you don’t whisk in the sour cream at this point, add a generous dollop when serving (See picture). Adjust seasoning if necessary. To serve, add chicken to serving dish, cover with sauce and whole chili’s. Serve with  Spaetzle.
