Chicken Paprika With Vegetables

 

This dish is a favorite in my home. I am not sure when we began making it, or even if it’s a recipe passed on from a friend or neighbor, just that we’ve been doing it for decades.

 

Ingredients:

  • One whole chicken – clean and cut into pieces
  • Four medium sized potatoes
  • Three medium sized carrots
  • Four  medium sized zucchini (or eight small ones)
  • Five garlic cloves (medium sized)
  • Two teaspoons paprika powder
  • Two teaspoons chicken seasoning
  • Salt (or chicken stock for taste)
  • Three tablespoons of vegetable oil

Directions:

  • In a large pot, chop the garlic and fry it with the oil until golden.
  • Add the chicken seasoning, paprika and salt/chicken stock.
  • Place the chicken pieces atop the mix and cover the pot.
  • Every now and then flip the pieces until no liquid is left.
  • Add half a cup of boiling water, cover the pot and lower the heat.

** While the chicken is beginning to cook**

  • Peel the potatoes, cut them into four pieces, then eight.
  • Peel the carrots, cut them in half, then quarters.
  • Cut the zucchinis into two/three inch a piece (I used baby zucchinis, so I kept them whole).
  • Flip the chicken again, add another half cup of boiling water if necessary.
  • Add the vegetables and let it cook.
  • Occasionally, shake the pot and flip the chicken pieces , then add small amounts of boiling water, until you can easily insert a fork on the chicken breast.
  • Let the liquid thicken until it becomes somewhat creamy.

Note: If you use chicken stocks, make sure it’s dissolved – step two. Also, you can replace the carrot with baby carrots, add mushroom, broccoli or green beans.
