This easy Chicken Paprikash recipe is the perfect choice for busy nights because it takes less than 30 minutes to prepare. I’m sure you know those nights – the ones where nothing seems to be going right and you’re behind on everything. I know I do. Sometimes it seems like I have a lot more of those than days where everything goes right. I am being compensated by Cans Get You Cooking for my participation in this campaign as part of the Mom It Forward Blogger Network.

Easy Chicken Paprikash Recipe

Chicken Paprikash or Paprika Chicken is a Hungarian dish that gets its name from the paprika that gives the dish a bright red color. Paprika is a common spice used in Hungarian cooking. Paprika is a dried and powdered spice that is made from certain varieties of peppers. It’s traditionally served over egg noodles although if you want to keep it gluten free, you can easily serve it over rice or even gluten free pasta.

  • 1 pound boneless skinless chicken breasts or thighs cut up & cooked
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 green pepper, sliced thinly
  • 1 onion, chopped finely
  • 2 tsp paprika
  • 1 cup chicken broth
  • 1 can of Muir Glen Diced Tomatoes (14.5 oz)
  • 1 tbsp lemon juice
  • 1/3 cup sour cream
  • salt & pepper to taste


  1. Cook the chicken in the olive oil until browned.
  2. Add the peppers and onions and cook until soft.
  3. Add the chicken broth and cook until reduced by half.
  4. Add tomatoes and simmer, turning the chicken occasionally, until the chicken is cooked completely.
  5. Remove from heat and stir in the sour cream. Serve.

Using canned diced tomatoes helps make this recipe quick to prepare. There is no need to remove the skin or dice the tomatoes by hand. Using canned vegetables is a great way to help get a healthy dinner on the table fast.  Using canned foods mean less prep and year-round availability, making healthy, homemade meals a reality, more often. A well-stocked pantry – your “Cantry ” – helps you get through the week with creative meals you can feel good about serving your family and friends.

  1. Very colorful! I have a chicken paprikash recipe that I really enjoy, but it differs from yours in a number of ways. I notice the lemon juice and am curious about how it would impact my own.
    • Thanks, Val. This is the only way I’ve ever tried it so I am not sure. I’ll have to look for some variations!
