Making family meals at work can be kinda stressful. I mean you have to figure out what you’re making and make sure that the kitchen has everything you need, and you have to be able to finish all your prep work while making the meal. We always get get the job done but all I have to say is that it takes a lot of braising to fit all this in our day.
Ingredients: 4 chicken thighs, 6 chicken legs, 1/8 cup oil, 4 cups chicken stock, 1/2 an onion minced, 3 garlic cloves minced, 3 Tbsp paprika, 2 Tbsp cayenne pepper, salt and pepper to taste.
Heat oven to 350 degrees.
In a large saute pan, heat up the oil. Sear off all the chicken and place in a casserole pan. In a medium sauce pan saute the onions till translucent. Add in the garlic and saute for 2 minutes more add in the paprika and cayenne. After about 1 minutes whisk in the chicken stock and bring to a boil. Once at a boil, pour over the chicken pieces.
Place in the oven covered with aluminum foil, and cook for about 2 hours. Once done, take the chicken out, pour the sauce in the same sauce pan you used and reduce a little more then half way to thicken the sauce. Season with salt and pepper. Once the sauce is where you want it, pour it over the chicken!
You can serve this dish with egg noodles, potatoes, or whatever you are feeling. I did egg noodles since it was easiest to do for family meal.
I have to say for my very first time making chicken paprikash, this dish turned out AMAZING! Full of flavor, and super tender chicken too.
