This is not a smoked dish.

Chicken Paprikash
Recipe by: Andy Svab
This recipe will make enough for 6 people.
11 chicken thighs (you can use legs, wings) I recommend no breast. If cooked to long, the breast may be dry. You can also add chicken hearts and gizzards.

2 medium onions. Diced.
2 cloves of garlic. Chopped
4 tbs of Hungarian Paprika

Canola oil

Black Pepper


Chop onions and garlic and place into a large pot. Pour enough oil to cover the bottom of the pot. Add 2 pinches of salt and 2 pinches of black pepper. On medium heat, cook until translucent.


Place chicken into pot. Let cook for about 20 minutes. Then add in ½ cup of hot water or chicken stock. Once simmering, reduce heat to low and add 4 tbs of Hungarian Paprika. Be sure to stir often so paprika doesn’t burn.

Should be fully cooked in about 1 ½ to 2 hours total.


About 1/2 hr before chicken is ready, it will be time to start the dumplings. Mix 4 cups of flour, 3 eggs, 2 cups of milk, 1/2 cup of water. Beat until this becomes a very sticky paste. Using a non-stick pot with boiling salt water (1tsp of salt), slowly start cutting the pasty dough into the water.

The trick here is to put some dough onto a plate. With the plate slightly tipped, use a butter knife to push the dough off of the plate. Slide the knife along the side of the plate to cut the dough to the size of the dumpling you wish to have. These will not take long to cook. Do not fill pot with noodles. As they are cooked they will float to the top, leave in for one more minute. Remove floating dumplings and place into the colander and bowl of cold water. This will assure that the dumplings will be firm and not mushy. Repeat the process until all dough is cooked into the dumplings.


Place dumplings onto the center of a plate or into a bowl. Top it with some of the chicken and lots of paprika juice. Also if you like you can also top it with Sour Cream. Enjoy.

My Mom taught me how to make this dish many years ago and to this day its my kids and wife fav dish. I make the noodles the same but the chicken and the gravy I do a little different. I use a little more water so that I have a lot more gravy. They love the dish so much and the noodles that I have to make a whole lot of it. As for the gravy I put in sour cream for the gravy. It gives it a taste that is so good.
