Last night, I made hungarian paprika chicken in the crockpot. Although it was okay, it was not nearly as flavorful as I had hoped...the sauce was sort of bland. I don't have the recipe in front of me, but here's an idea of how I cooked it. Maybe someone can help me out or suggest a better recipe with more flavor to the sauce.
5 chicken breasts (bone & skin included) (We don't like dark meat)
4 Tablespoons paprika
1/8 teaspoon ground chipote powder
4 cloves garlic, chopped
1 large onion, chopped
1 teaspoon seasoned salt
1 (15 oz.) can crushed tomatoes
1 cup lite sour cream
2 Tablespoons flour
First, I sauteed the onion and garlic in oil until translucent, then mixed in the paprika and chipote powder and stirred it well, cooking for just a few minutes. In another pan, I put some more olive oil, sprinkled the chicken with the seasoned salt, and browned the chicken for a few minutes. Then, I put everything in the crockpot, and I cooked it on high for about 4 hours. Just before serving, I mixed the flour with the sour cream, and mixed in with the juices to make the sauce.
I'm not looking to make the dish spicier...just more flavorful, since for some reason the sauce didn't seem to have a lot of taste.
