I’ve been making this recipe for years and it is always so delicious. It is one of my favorite go-to dishes when guests are coming over.
I made this dish this evening, but I used Hungarian Sweet Paprika for the first time with it instead of the smoked – totally changes the flavor and I actually ended up enjoying more than with the smoked. Totally recommend trying it some time!
Anyway, thank you for sharing this recipe!
- 3 lb skinless boneless chicken thighs, fat trimmed
- 1 tsp. each Kosher salt and freshly ground pepper
- 2 Tbsp. McCormick Smoked Paprika you can also use regular paprika
- 2 Tbs. olive oil
- Pressed garlic
- 1 medium onion finely chopped
- 2 cups sliced mushrooms
- 1 lb. red and white small potatoes in 1-inch chunks
- 2 cups baby carrots
- 2 Tbs. flour
- 1 1/3 cups chicken broth
- 3/4 cup white wine or white grape juice
- 1 1/2 Tbs. fresh thyme finely chopped
In a Ziploc bag, combine about 2 T. smoked paprika, 1 tsp. each of salt and pepper. Mix together and add 4-5 pieces of chicken at a time, lightly shaking. Pull the chicken pieces out and put on a large plate. Repeat the process, adding more spices if needed, until all the chicken has been coated.
In a large heavy frying pan, heat the oil over medium-high heat. Add the chicken and cook until brown, about 2 minutes on each side. Transfer the chicken to a plate. Repeat the process until all the chicken has been lightly cooked.
Add the garlic and onion to the frying pan, stirring for about 2 minutes. Add the mushrooms and stir another 2 minutes. Add the potatoes and carrots. Sprinkle with salt and pepper and sauté for about 5 minutes.
Gently whisk the flour into the wine. Gradually pour into the vegetable mixture. Bring to a boil, stirring frequently. Add the chicken stock; stir. Return the chicken to the pan and bring to a boil.
Cover the pan, and reduce the heat to medium-low, simmering until the chicken and vegetables are cooked. Cook for about 30 minutes. Right before serving, stir the chicken and vegetables; add in the thyme. Taste and adjust the seasoning with more salt and pepper. Serve on farro, rice, or quinoa.
