Note: This recipe requires advanced preparation

Chile Pepper Contributing Editor Sharon Hudgins declares her husband Tom to
be an excellent cook of Hungarian foods. This is his personal recipe for
Paprika Chicken, a very refined version of this classic dish. In Hungary,
this dish is traditionally served with small egg dumplings called galuska,
but you can also serve it with egg noodles, plain rice, or boiled potatoes.
