Chicken Paprikash

Chicken Paprikash – Keto Recipe

Chicken Paprikash is a superior dish of the Hungarian culture. Your main course will be rich and savory for having only a few seasonings. It\’s great for those late nights when you don\’t feel like spending much time in the kitchen or you simply don’t have enough time at all to make a difficult meal! One of the easiest chicken recipes to make in no time.

The pan gravy is made simply by mixing in some sour cream. Chicken Paprikash is damn mouth-watering. The gravy is a true sense of beauty here! Silky and rich, it takes on the flavor of the chicken, the paprika, and onion powder, and then the slight tang of the sour cream just brings it all together.  We may never thicken gravy with anything but sour cream from now on – it’s that amazing!

The recipe is easy and keto-style and a delectable choice for keto dieters. You can have chicken paprikash with cauliflower rice, keto bread, or even with keto naan or zucchini noodles. This recipe serves best with all of these meal options.
