Chicken Paprika with Cilantro

This is the first time I have a chicken paprika for lunch & just falling in love with the dish from the first bite!
When I open my refrigerator I found a bunch of cilantro which end up giving a balance for this dish.
You can also use parsley for chicken paprika but today I think I want to make something different, an asian touch on a hugarian dish - why not? ;) 

Cilantro... let's do ur job!

  • 6 Chicken Drumstick
  • 2 tbsp Canola Oil
  • 2-3 tbsp Low Fat Butter
  • 1 Onion, chopped
  • 2 cloves Garlic, chopped
  • 1 tbsp Paprika Powder
  • 1 tbsp Cayenne Paper
  • 1 tbsp Flour
  • 2 cup Chicken Stock
  • 1 handful Cilantro, roughly chopped 
  • 2 Red Paprika, de-seeded, slice 
  • 4 large Ripe Tomatoes, roughly chopped
  • 1/2 cup Light Sour Cream

  • Season chicken with salt and black paper.
  • In a non-stick pan, heat canola oil and butter, brown the chicken on each site until golden brown. Remove from heat, set a side. 

  • Still in the sama pan, enter onion and garlic, saute for a sec until the onion is translute. 
  • Enter the cayenne paper and paprika powder, stir. Lower the heat, enter the flour, stir quickly - do not burn it. 
  • Add the chicken stock, high the heat, enter the chicken, add 1/2 of chopped cilantro and bring to boil.
  • Add the red paprika, shimmer for 10 minutes.

  • Add the chopped tomato, shimmer for 30-45 minutes. 
  • When the chicken is cooked, remove from heat.
  • Stir in light sour cream and the 1/2 of cilantro. 
  • Check the seasoning, serve with warm rice.
  • Enjoy! ;)
