Menu Monday: Chicken Paprikas

OK, BB, this one's for you:


1 onion chopped
4 tablespoons oil
1 tablespoon paprkia
1/4 teaspoon black pepper
2 tablespoons salt
2-3 lbs chicken pieces (to lighten things up, I use 4-5 boneless, skinless chicken breasts, cut into pieces)
1 1/2 cups water
8 oz of sour cream (Note: fat free sour cream works fine. Greek yogurt does not)

Brown onion in oil, add seasonings and chicken; brown. Add water, cover and let simmer until chicken is tender (45 minutes to an hour, depending on what kind of chicken you use). If the juices seems to be running low, it's OK to add a bit of water, but don't turn it into soup.
Remove chicken, add sour cream to drippings in pan and mix well. Return chicken to pan, add dumplings (see below) and heat through.

Dumplings
3 eggs, beaten
3 cups flour
1 tablespoon salt
1/2 cup water

Mix all ingredients together until you get a soft dough. (add more water if needed) Drop by half-teaspoonfuls into boiling salted water and cook about 10 minutes (or until dumpings are cooked through). Drain, then add to chicken/sauce mixture.

Note: This makes a lot of dumplings ... I tend to cut the recipe by a third ...
