  • Active Time 40m

4 servings, about 1 1/4 cups each

This light version of chicken paprikash was passed along to our recipe developer Carolyn by her Aunt Sofia. Brilliant red paprika is the main seasoning in Hungarian cooking and this dish highlights its nuanced character. Vary the heat by using hot, sweet or a combination of paprikas. Make it a meal: Serve over whole-wheat egg noodles or spaetzle with a side of steamed broccoli and a cool fruit salad for dessert.

ingredients

  • 1 pound boneless, skinless chicken breasts, trimmed, cut into 2-inch pieces
  • 1/4 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon freshly ground pepper
  • 1 tablespoon canola oil
  • 2 large green bell peppers, thinly sliced
  • 1 large onion, halved and thinly sliced
  • 2 teaspoons hot or sweet paprika
  • 1/2 cup dry white wine
  • 1 1/2 cups canned crushed tomatoes
  • 1/2 cup reduced-sodium chicken broth
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • 1/4 cup reduced-fat sour cream
  • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh parsley

directions

Sprinkle chicken with salt and pepper. Heat oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add chicken and cook, turning occasionally, until browned, 3 to 5 minutes. Transfer to a plate.

Add bell peppers and onion to the pan and cook, covered, over medium heat, stirring occasionally, until softened, about 5 minutes. Add paprika and cook, stirring, until fragrant, about 30 seconds. Add wine; increase heat to medium-high and cook, stirring, until mostly evaporated, about 1 1/2 minutes. Add tomatoes, broth and lemon juice; bring to a boil. Return the chicken and any accumulated juices to the pan; reduce heat to a simmer. Spoon some sauce over the chicken and cook, turning occasionally, until the sauce is reduced and the chicken is cooked through, 6 to 8 minutes.

Remove from the heat and stir in sour cream. Serve sprinkled with parsley.
