A delicious family recipe that is always a hit. Pretty and tasty enough to serve to dinner guests. It has a little kick to it from Serrano chiles and you can add more or less, or leave them out completely... it is still yummy!

A delicious chicken recipe for tonight's dinner. This takes a little time to cook, but it's so easy and very tasty. Serrano chilis definitely bring the heat, but the sour cream adds a tang and creaminess. Chopped parsley on top for a pop of fresh flavor and you have a fantastic dish. The Test Kitchen

How to Make Chicken Paprika with Sour Cream

Step-by-Step

  1. Heat olive oil in a deep, large skillet. Sprinkle chicken with kosher salt and arrange skin side down in skillet. Reduce heat to medium and cook 20-25 minutes, until dark, golden brown, turning chicken once after 15 minutes. Transfer chicken to a plate.
  2. Cook onion, chilis, garlic, and 1/4 tsp salt in pan drippings for about 3-4 minutes, stirring until tender. Stir in paprika and cayenne pepper, cook 1 minute.
  3. Add chicken stock and bring mixture to a boil; return chicken to skillet. Reduce heat and simmer, partially covered for 20 minutes or until chicken is done.
  4. Transfer chicken to a serving dish. Reduce heat to low, whisk the sour cream in pan drippings and cook until warm. Do not let the mixture boil. Spoon sauce around chicken, and sprinkle with parsley.

    Enjoy!
