This paprika chicken is a snap to fix and cook in the crock pot. The recipe also includes quick homemade dumplings, which are easy to make and require just three ingredients. When it all comes together, you'll have a hearty meal that's perfect for family dinners.
In this recipe, you'll cook the chicken breasts in a slow cooker for about six hours. They're seasoned with Hungarian sweet paprika, salt, and pepper, while chopped onions bring some flavorful veggies into the mix. The sauce becomes a savory delight when sour cream is added. To thicken the sauce, cornstarch is blended into the sour cream. Be sure to do this in a separate bowl; lumps will form if cornstarch is added directly to the hot liquid in the slow cooker.
The dumplings are made with a simple combination of eggs, water, and flour. Rather than cooking them in the crock pot, they're made in a separate pot of water, and the salt gives them a perfect amount of flavor. If you prefer to skip the dumplings, serve the chicken with biscuits.
When the chicken and dumplings are cooked, simply add them to the serving bowls, and dinner is ready. A fresh green salad is an easy side for this dish, though it's also nice with some sautéed or roasted veggies.
