There are almost as many recipes for Chicken Paprikash as there are Hungarian cooks. This is a simple version; others add chopped green pepper and diced fresh tomatoes.

Our tasters thoroughly approved when light sour cream was substituted for the higher-fat regular product. By using a nonstick-coated Dutch oven and leaving the skin on the chicken, only 1 Tablespoon of butter was needed during browning.
