according to my wife, who was raised on chicken paprikash made by her slovakian born and raised mother, it MUST contain dark meat chicken, sour cream, and paprika. everything else is regional or a spin off.

I think the Slovenska has it right. They lived under the boot of the Hungarians for many years. My paternal grandparents came from the Kosice - Presov region.

I agree with the sour cream and paprika but since I only eat white meat that goes in also. lol My Poland born grandmother (close to Slovenian) taught me my recipe.

I made this recently with Cooks Illustrated's recipe. They suggested using a combination of thighs and breasts, cooking the thighs for an hour and the breasts for 20 minutes, so they don't overcook and get dry. They also included 1 red and 1 green pepper and a can of diced tomatoes. Maybe not the most traditional, but it was delish and I like adding more nutritious veggies whenever I can

So, Bucky, I was on the right path. What did she serve it on?

yuppers...the dried and ground peppers. First from Mexico and parts of South America, brought to Europe through the Balkans into Hungary.

Interesting how much European cooking comes from after New World discovery.

And not just "any" peppers. Specific varieties of peppers known as "Paprika" peppers. Come in both sweet & hot types.
