    Changed the paprika with red chili, a bit too spicy then

    It was very easy to make actually, I was skeptical about the 3onions so I used 2 and 2/3 of the last one but 3 is definetly the correct amount yeah. I used the hot paprika paste(2 table spoons) as well as the paprika powder(1/2 table spoon) Very easy to get here in hungary. Tbh I wasn’t expecting much from this such, but it was super super tasty. It tasted exactly the one I ate in a famous hungarian restaurant in Szeged . I didn’t have cayenne but the paste was spicy enough! I also didn’t add salt through out the cooking (except on the chicken as the recipe suggest) . The first hungarian dish I’ve made and will definitely make it again.
    I loved this dish! I didn't like reduction of the veggies, so when I removed the chicken (I used breasts), I placed the contents in a mini-cuisinart then added the sour cream to the mixture. I tasted it and added a little more cayenne (we like it hot)! I added back in the chicken and served it over wide egg noodles. I'll definitely make this again!

    I liked it, the rest of the family didn't. It was nicely spicy and delicious over buttered noodles.

    Awesome! Use real Hungarian sweet paprika and add garlic.

    Goes very well with buttered egg noodles. Only issue was that it was too spicy, but nothing a bit more sour cream can’t fix!

    I would use less paprika next time, but other than that it was good. I had it with rice instead. I also added some Parmesan cheese on top.

    So glad i cut back the amount of cayenne, it would have been too spicy for us. Going to thicken the sauce next time, but the flavor was good.

    Good. I would make it again. Nice and spicy. I used chicken breasts and loved it. Just what I was looking for!
