Excellent...used chicken drumsticks. Made my own spaetzel. Almost as good as my mum's.

I have made chicken paprika a few times and was about to give up. Mine never comes out like everybody else's. I have tried so many recipes. Now I can stop looking. I used chicken thighs and it has it so much flavor.

Omg. I’m so happy that I found this recipe, it came out fantastic. Thank you grandma for that step of the seasoning salt because that made a world of difference.

This was very good, flavor was amazing, I could eat the sauce and dumplings just themselves! The dumplings are bang on to my Mom and Baba’s and I am so excited to have found this receipe! Took a while to make but so worth it!!! Only wish I had more of a red color to it like the original photo - I used Hungarian Sweet Paparika just like the receipe called for!

This is great. Very similar to the recipe I’ve been trying to replicate for years from an old Hungarian lady back in Ohio. Closest so far. My kids go crazy for it. Good old Eastern European comfort food for sure. It is a must try.

I am Hungarian and here is the best recipe, trust me, The pieces of chicken you want, 4 or 5 onions cut up and lots and lots of paprika--thats it--no water or anything else. The liquid will come out of the meat.

I have been looking for a recipe that reminded me of my Mom's. This is it! Perfect recipe...very comforting to eat. I am planning to make this again and again.

Great Recipe! I have made this recipe twice.... the first time I made dumplings exactly as recipe instructed with regular flour and they turned out great! This time I made the dumplings gluten free .... just used Cup for Cup flour in place of regular flour and dumplings turned out great again! This is a great easy to make recipe ... reminded me of my husbands Grandmother's recipe and she was Hungarian and made wonderful Chicken Paprikash with Dumplings.

This recipe is fantastic. My husband put away two helpings before I had even finished dishing some out for myself. Great recipe to use with a pressure cooker.

I am Hungarian too! My Grandmother, Mother and me all make it like you do! It's our family's comfort food.
