House to Home: In the Kitchen+ Favorite Recipe

Thought I would show you a peek into my kitchen...where I spend a good amount of time feeding the boys in the family;) And while I am at it, I might as well share with you one of my family's favorite meals. Its the one my husband usually requests for his birthday dinner;) It's my mom's recipe so there is a lot of sentiment tied to it! And see I told you, shorts and tees and unkempt hair is my usual attire.


Chicken Paprika
(Recipe is for 2 lbs chiken but I often half it for 1 lb.)
2 lbs Chicken Breasts cut into strips
1 stick of butter
1 1/2 medium onions
1/3 c. sour cream
1 t. salt
1 t. pepper
2 t. paprika

1) Chop onion and place in a large cooking pot along with the stick of butter and cook over low heat until onions are clear.
2) Add salt, pepper, and paprika
3) Place the chicken around the bottom of the pot and let sit for two minutes on each side. Cover and let simmer for a good hour. Turn the chicken half way through. (The key to the flavor of this dish is letting it sit in the spices for a good long while!)
4) When the chicken is close to being finished, cook a pound of pasta of your choice. Cavatapi and Rotini are great ones.
4) When the chicken is ready, remove it from the pot and set aside. Add the sour cream to the sauce and whisk together. 
5) Pour the sauce and chicken over the noodles and enjoy every last bite:)


Let me know if you have any questions!

  9. oh Anna, your "usual" attire is just so darling! i saw the 1st bright pic pop up on my blogroll and knew i had to visit right away to see the rest : )

    these are just like out of a magazine spread and i loved the sentiment behind your recipe plus the fact it's got paprika in it! yah, one of my fave ingredients right there. my mom's recipes seem to go missing from her kitchen every now and then, she'll call me up going "hmmm, wonder where that one disappeared to?" i think she's almost found me out ; )

  48. I love that combination of stripes and color. It is very similar to my personal style. Probably why I like it so much!

    ReplyDelete
  49. here's my question: how in the world do you eat such delicious food, have babies, and have such *tiny* little legs & bootie! i'm impressed.

    this looks yummy... and i can even make it with ingredients from an english grocery store. score. :)

    ReplyDelete
  50. i wish my casual attire looked that sensational! that cardigan is a great color.

    ReplyDelete
  51. Oh my goodness! I am so excited about this recipe, because I actually have all of the ingredients to make this! (without having to go to the store). I think I might use penne pasta, since that's what I have on hand. Thank you!!!

    Also, I must say, if that's your casual version - shorts, tee & unkempt hair, I can't imagine you dressed tot he nines! You look AMAZING!!!

    ReplyDelete
