Directions

1
In a large skillet, brown chicken in 1 tablespoon butter and oil over medium heat.

Cover and cook for 5-7 minutes.

Remove chicken; keep warm.
2
In same skillet, saute onions until tender.
3
Reduce heat to medium. Add paprika and remaining butter; heat until butter is melted.


Stir in cream, salt and pepper; cook and stir until sauce is thickened, about 4 minutes.
4
While sauce is thickening, slice chicken breasts or leave them whole. After the sauce is thickened, won't be real thick; add the chicken back to the pan and heat through.
5
Place the pasta on plate, place the chicken atop and spoon the delicious sauce over all.

I make 1 1/2 times the sauce as we love it, and like extra on our pasta.

I served mine with Broccoli, the kids even like to dip it in the sauce.

Enjoy..it really is tasty!
