I thought I would be the odd one today and give you a non-Easter, or should I say, non-Easter leftover recipe. Not that this is what we are having...heck I have Ham and Bean Soup in the crock pot as we speak, haha! BUT, I did make this last week and it was delish! This is another authentic German dish from my Aunt Ingrid, though I did do some very minor tweaking. German Chicken Paprikash....."Waiiiiter, there is too much peeppper in my Paprikash..." Name that movie. It is really good and a breeze to put together. The leftovers are GREAT, in fact, I think this would be a good dish to make a double batch of and freeze one for a simple meal at a later time....you know like when you get back from the beach ;)
- 2 TBSP oil of canola or olive oil
- 2 pounds boneless, skinless chicken thighs, cut into bite sized pieces
- 1 large yellow onion, diced
- 1 green bell pepper, diced
- 3 TBSP Hungarian Paprika
- 2 cloves garlic, minced
- salt and pepper, to taste
- 1/2 cup water
- 1 TBSP corn starch
- 1/2 cup sour cream
After an hour, dissolve cornstarch in water and add to chicken mixture, stirring to combine. Once thickened, stir in sour cream and remove from heat. At this point, start adding salt and pepper to taste. Go slow, you can always add more. Serve over rice, noodles, mashed potatoes, or spaetzle. ENJOY!!!
I just had to share my favorite picture of our beach day. My sweet kiddo C LOVES being buried in the sand. I caught her as she was laughing hysterically when I shouted "EEEKKK! A head in the sand!" Give your soul a smile today, go kiss the ones you love twice, just because!
