Our Kosher Chicken Paprikash comes from my mother in law, an incredible woman who birthed 11 children(my husband is the second to youngest). Ema keeps a clean house, and cooks delicious food. She is well known in the family for her comforting recipes that gather everyone around the table with love. Ema also likes it easy! No patchkas here please!
This is one of her go to recipes: a full dinner complete with sides, made all in one pot.
And I really do mean one pot- you literally throw all the ingredients, including the sauce, into the pot, cover it and you are done! Spoon everything into a shallow serving bowl or bring it to the table directly in the pot….and serve your family their best meal!
What is Chicken Paprikash?
Chicken Paprikash is a Hungarian dish made with chicken, a generous amount of paprika, and tomato paste. We make ours kosher by omitting any dairy ingredients, and add sliced potatoes and mushrooms for a full dinner in one pot.
How to make this easy chicken dish:
This is the easiest, quickest recipe for chicken paprikash! I promise it will become a staple for your family when you see how little work is involved.
- Slice potatoes into 1/4 inch thick slices. I like to peel my potatoes first and keep the slices even in thickness so they all cook evenly.
- Place potatoes in a large pot and add in chicken, half a can of button mushrooms, and all seasoning ingredients.
- Add water(3 cups), cover the pot, and let cook on low until the chicken is falling off the bone and potatoes are tender, 1 1/2 to 2 hours.
What to serve with Chicken Paprikash?
During the year, I like to serve this dish with rice, but on Passover, it really doesn’t need anything else!
Because we cook the chicken with potatoes and mushrooms, it’s actually got two yummy vegetables already made in the same pot. Hope you love it.
One Pot Chicken Paprikash
- 5-7 chicken pieces any bone in chicken
- 5 potatoes
- ½ can of button mushrooms
- 1 1/2 Tbs sweet paprika
- 1 Tbs garlic powder
- 2 tsp onion powder
- 1 ½ – 2 tsp salt depending on your preference(you can taste and add more later!)
- ½ Tbs brown sugar
- 4 Tbs ketchup
- 2 Tbs tomato paste
- ½ tsp turmeric
- 4-5 Garlic cloves whole and smashed with the side of a knife
- 3 cups water
- Peel and slice potatoes into thick round slices, between ¼-1/2 inch thick.
- Place in a pot. Add the chicken on top, and pour in the ½ can of mushrooms, without the liquids.
- Add all seasonings and pour over water.
- Bring to a boil, then lower heat and simmer until the chicken is falling off the bone and potatoes are tender, about 2 hours.
- To serve, arrange in a shallow serving dish, or bring to the table directly in the cooking pot. Enjoy!
- Note: If you like garlic, you can add in a whole head of garlic, peeled and smashed. This is how I personally like it! The garlic gets nice and soft and adds more great flavour to the dish.
