I recently found this chicken recipe online and thought it sounded different from all the run-of-the-mill chicken dishes I've seen so many times before. I had to change some things to suit my personal likes, so here it is.

How to Make PAPRIKA CHICKEN & BLACK-EYED PEAS

Step-by-Step

  • 1Season chicken all over with 1 Tbsp. paprika and 1 tsp. salt. Melt 1/2 Tbsp. butter in a large skillet over medium-high heat, add chicken breasts and cook, turning once, until golden brown, 10 to 12 minutes; transfer to a plate.
  • 2Add onion and remaining 1/2 Tbsp. paprika to skillet, reduce heat to medium and cook until just tender, about 5 minutes. Whisk in broth scraping up any browned bits, increase heat to medium-high and boil until reduced by half, 3 to 4 minutes. Whisk in tomatoes and 1/2 tsp. salt.
  • 3Return chicken and its juices to skillet. Bring to a boil, cover, reduce heat to medium-low and simmer until cooked through, about 35 minutes. Meanwhile, smash peas with remaining 1 Tbsp. butter and 1/2 tsp. salt in a medium pot and heat over medium heat until hot throughout.
  • 4Transfer peas to serving plate; remove chicken from sauce and arrange over peas. Whisk yogurt into sauce and simmer gently, uncovered, 5 minutes more. Spoon sauce over chicken and serve.
