We often have readers writing to us with questions on recreating a favorite recipe, or looking for recipe recommendations for a particular dish. Here's one from Marina:
I want to make Chicken Paprikash for the second time in 10 years (just a bit out of practice). Does anyone have any secret ingredients, never-failed recipes, or a good wine pairing?
Marina, I do not have personal experience with chicken paprikash, but I do know that it's fairly basic, easy, and wonderfully delicious chicken dish. It usually is a basic braise of chicken parts in a sauce with tomatoes, bell peppers, and paprika, and sometimes it is finished off with some sour cream. Here are two recipes that show the basic style of the dish. • Chicken Paprikash from Cooking Light • Chicken Paprikash from Real Simple For wine, I think an AlbariƱo would be wonderful, with its fruity, open flavors, and mild finish. It would complement a spicy, smoky dish well. Also try a Viognier from France; Trader Joe's Honey Moon is an inexpensive option here. Readers - do you have recipe or wine suggestions for Marina and her chicken paprikash?
