Slow Cooker Hungarian Paprika Chicken #Food of the World

The first time I had Hungarian Paprika Chicken my daughter was in the 3rd grade. I went to a school event where families shared a recipe from their ethnic heritage. A good friend of my daughter’s parents are from Hungary and they made this dish. 

Well, their version was creamy. I have a kid who is severally lactose intolerant, so we added sour cream individually. It works well, of course you can just add it into the entire dish when the dish is done cooking. 

Hungarian Paprika Chicken is a very simple dish that has wide taste appeal. It is basically just chicken, onions, tomatoes, peppers and Hungarian Paprika. You can add potatoes or not. It is delicious served over egg noodles too. I used fire roasted peppers to kick the flavor up a bit, but you can use plain roasted or even fresh red peppers. 

I think it is important to invest in Hungarian Paprika since it is the main seasoning in the recipe. It taste different from regular paprika and it is a nice change in flavor for other dishes you might make that call for paprika. When looking for Hungarian Paprika in the grocery store it is usually sold in tins. A common variety will look like this picture below.
