 Ingredients List

  • 1/4 c Butter
  • 1 lg Onion, sliced into rings
  • 3 1/2 lb Chicken, cut into
  • -serving-sized pieces
  • Salt, to taste
  • 1 1/2 tb Hungarian paprika
  • 1 Green pepper, seeded,
  • -deribbed, and sliced into
  • -rings
  • 1 Tomato, sliced
  • 1/4 lb Fresh button mushrooms,
  • -optional
  • 1/2 c Sour cream, optional


In a 3-quart Dutch oven or heavy-bottomed saucepan over medium heat, melt
butter. Add onion and saute until translucent (about 5 minutes). Remove pan
from heat. Sprinkle chicken with salt and add to pan with paprika, half of
the green pepper, and half of the tomato. Cover pan with a tight-fitting
lid and cook over very low heat until chicken is tender (1 to 1 1/2 hours).
Turn chicken pieces occasionally so that they cook evenly. If necessary,
add a few spoonfuls of water to prevent sticking. During the last 15
minutes of cooking, add mushrooms (if used). When chicken is tender
transfer to a heated platter. Place pan over medium heat and cook juices,
scraping bottom of pan to loosen any burned-on bits. Add a spoonful or so
of water to achieve a gravylike consistency, then stir in sour cream (if
used) to form a smooth mixture. Pour over chicken and garnish with the
remaining green pepper and tomato.
