Due to the fact that I have to be in a bathingsuit soon, I served this chicken paprikash with cauliflower rice. Although (I'm pretty sure) traditional chicken paprikash is served with dumplings or spaetzle. Spaetzle are little bite sized dumplings, basically tiny pieces of chewy dough, kind of like gnocchi but smaller with more texture.
Chicken paprikash is super easy to make, the key to the recipe is using authentic Hungarian paprika seasoning. If you're trying to keep things light, you don't have to use heavy cream...you can sub something else, or omit the cream part completely - things will just be less soupy and more like seasoned chicken with rice or dumplings. This recipe makes enough for two people!
What to do:
So I didn't eat any of the peas. For some reason, I have it stuck in my head that peas are supposed to be in traditional carbonara, but most dishes that I make don't follow the rules anyways so I'm here to tell you that peas are 100% an optional ingredient. The following recipe makes enough for 3-4 people!!
