    Chicken Paprikash

    From: The Old World Kitchen typed by Ross Bernheim; posted to rec.food.recipes by Ronald Keene
    Category: Hungarian chicken main dish, low carb Servings: 4

    ? cup butter 1 large onion 1 cut-up chicken (1,6 kg) 1,5 Tbsp of Hungarian paprika 1 green bell
    pepper 1 tomato optional - 100 grams of fresh button mushrooms optional - 100 grams of sour cream
    salt to taste

    In a three quart Dutch oven or heavy bottomed sauce pan over medium heat, melt butter. Slice onion,
    green bell pepper (separate half of it) and tomato (separate half of it) and cut up chicken. Add
    onion and saute until translucent (about 5 minutes). Remove pan from heat. Sprinkle chicken with
    salt and add to pan with paprika, half of the green bell pepper, and half of the tomato. Cover the
    pan with a tight-fitting lid and cook over very low heat until the chicken is tender (1 to 1-1/2
    hours). Turn chicken pieces occasionally so that they cook evenly. If necessary, add a few spoonfuls
    of water to prevent sticking. During the last 15 minutes of cooking add mushrooms, if using.

    When chicken is tender, transfer to a heated platter. Place pan over medium heat and cook juices,
    scraping the bottom of pan to loosen any burned-on bits. Add a spoonful or so of water to achieve a
    gravy like consistency, then stir in sour cream (if used) to form a smooth mixture. Pour over
    chicken and garnish with remaining bell pepper and tomato. Serve hot.
