Coop@home recipe bank holds 100’s or easy options for your family and best of all you can have everything delivered to your doorstep.

This recipe for Chicken with Paprika Sauce delivers an economical and hearty dinner to the table in about 30 minutes. All the required ingredient are easily listed with the recipe and can be added to your shopping cart.

NOTE: The recipe calls for “chicken legs, cut in half, skinless”. I think they mean to cut the legs away from the thighs. In Switzerland, it seems they usually sell those cuts of meat still connected. Cutting them into smaller pieces will allow them to cook faster and more evenly.   

To start the recipe you simply need to heat the oil in the frying pan and brown the skin of the chicken for about 10 minutes. This will make the skin nice and crispy as well as rendering fat. If you want a richer sauce feel free to leave the fat and drippings in the pan, otherwise wipe the pan with a paper-towel.

The next step is putting the paprika sauce together. Start this by sautéing the onions for about 3 minutes and then adding the paprika and tomato paste continue cooking f

or a minute more. The mixture will be rather dry and pasty. So logically its time to add the liquid ingredients, stock and wine, bring to the boil, reduce the heat. Return the chicken to the pan, cover and simmer over a medium heat for around 20 mins.

After the check has finished cooking it should be juicy and tender and the sauce should be nicely flavored. Again, remove the meat and blend the sauce until its smooth using a food processor, immersion blender or standard blender. If you don’t have these available, don’t worry, your sauce will taste the same blended or rustic. To finish the dish stir in the cream and lemon juice, return the chicken to the pan, heat through, season with salt and sprinkle with paprika. I served it over rice, but some people prefer pasta.
