paprika chicken

This can actually take from 30 minutes to 1 hour to cook depending on how much you cook the chicken before it goes into the oven I've also used about a third of a packet of frozen stir fry mix (carrots, sugar snap peas, carrots, peppers, green and yellow beans) in place of the Bell Peppers and it worked equally well.

How To Make paprika chicken

  • 1
    Pre-heat the oven to about 180 ºC, 356 F. Brown the chicken thighs which serves 4 (this is the time when you should cook chicken first if you want to reduce the cooking time) and remove it from the pan (the pan I use is the roasting tin I’m going to cook it in).
  • 2
    Fry onions until they are soft then add a palm full of smokey Paprika.
  • 3
    Sprinkle on a little all purpose flour (to thicken up the sauce whilst it’s cooking). and then add chicken stock (about 1/2 pint)and a tin of tomatoes.
  • 4
    Add half each of a sliced red, orange and green pepper. Put the chicken back into the roasting tin and then put into the oven then depending on if you pre cook the chicken it can be anything from 30mins – 1 hour.

    I serve it with plain rice and a nice bread …either a nice crusty loaf or Ciabatta
