I completely forgot about this wonderful Hungarian Paprika Chicken recipe!  When my kids were at school in Sydney, the school put together an amazing cookbook with many of the parents contributions.  They tested the recipes one by one and took photos and created a beautiful recipe book, which I found really impressive.

This recipe is one of my friends recipes and I used to make it for my family often.  They absolutely loved it and it is simple and nutritious and that’s what I like in a recipe!  I made this dish the other night and the kids love it as much now as they did back then.  It brings back lovely memories of our time in Sydney with young kids.

I order my chicken online from Sasha’s Fine Foods in Singapore and you can find the website here and I order my salmon, minced beef and minced chicken here too.  I love supporting Sasha because she personally visits the farms she receives her produce from.  This way you know it is the best quality.

This is a wonderful recipe to add to your collection!

You can serve this Hungarian Paprika Chicken with rice or cauliflower-rice, sweet potato mash and can serve it with the South African corn bread recipe found here
