Hello all. I was going through old family photos and came across my grandmother, who was from Hungary. It immediately made me think of her chicken paprikash. No one in my family has the recipe she used and am wondering if anyone has a good one. The only things I remember about her recipe, other than the yummness, was that it was really orange (I assume from the paprika) and that she used a tall stew pot to cook it. All the research I did shows that the recipe is pretty much the same across the board, but cooking ways vary. What would you serve with it? Potatoes? Noodles? I don't remember what we ate with it.

How about dumplings?  I would opt for either dumplings or noodles.  I have read recipes both with and without tomatoes; which way do you remember it?  I may have to check out a paprikash recipe this weekend!

My family is from over there and my grandpa used to make Chicken Paprikash as well as my dad.  I have found

recipes, but nothing can compare to what they made.  Nothing at all.  I miss my dad.  He used to make lots of things

and now it is all gone. except in my head.
Oh darn, my cat just attacked my foot.  I better be still with them then. hahahaha
