    About this recipe: This dish is similar to the Hungarian dish - chicken paprikash but does not have sour cream. It makes this dish lighter and the trio of capsicums add colour and sweetness. Serve with your choice of pasta.

    Serves: 4 

    • 3 boneless chicken breasts
    • 1 tin (400g) of diced tomatoes
    • 1 clove of garlic, finely chopped
    • 1 yellow capsicum
    • 1 red capsicum
    • 1 green capsicum
    • 1 onion
    • 3 tablespoons of paprika
    • 250ml of water
    • pinch of salt & pepper

    Prep:15min  ›  Cook:30min  ›  Ready in:45min 

    1. Cut the chicken into cubes.
    2. Cut all the capsicums and onion into slices. Heat some olive oil in a large saucepan and sauté the chicken, capsicums and onions until the chicken is sealed-approx five minutes.
    3. Add the garlic, the tinned tomatoes, the paprika, the salt & pepper and the water and simmer together for 20-30 minutes. While the chicken is cooking cook your pasta according to packet directions. (I use pasta shells.)
    4. Serve the chicken paprika on top of the pasta of your choice with lots of juice.
    5. Enjoy with nice crusty bread.

    Very easy to make. Had a houseful of teenagers. They loved it. Very tasty was the general concenus. I added 1/4 cup of cream 5 minutes before serving. Topped it with shredded cheese & shallots.  -  02 Mar 2013  (Review from Allrecipes AU | NZ)
