How to Make Paprika Cream Chicken & Penne


  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. really is tasty!
