Chicken Breast Paprika

Mom is visiting! She chose this recipe as one she’d like to eat for dinner, and helped to stir up the sauce that goes on this dish. We had all the ingredients because we had stocked up for last week’s adventure with the Hamburger Stroganoff.

Chicken Breast Paprika

4 pounds chicken breasts
1 cup flour
1/2 tsp. pepper
1/2 cup oil
1/4 cup sherry
2 cans cream of mushroom soup
1 pint sour cream
1 cup milk
A dash Tabasco sauce
1/4 garlic salt
Dredge chicken in flour, salt, pepper. Brown in oil. Combine all other ingredients and heat. Pour some sauce in flat casserole, arrange chicken pieces in casserole, and cover with remaining sauce. Sprinkle liberally with paprika. Bake one hour at 350°F
Serves 8 to 10

To our knowledge, Mom never used garlic salt. Season as you would instead. We just used garlic powder.

Another rich dish! We served it over brown rice. We don’t use white rice so we’ve already diverted from cooking it “just the way Mom did.” On the other hand, she uses brown rice these days, too, so maybe we’re okay. Lovely with some fresh slices of tomato and cucumber spears to lighten things up.

We halved this recipe for our purposes (the original recipe serves 8 to 10), and the three of us ate barely half, so we had it for another meal, then packed up the rest as lunches for my husband. Sorry no photos this time! The kitchen was hopping and all our hands were full.

What’s your favorite thing to serve with a rich main dish?

    Reading the recipes and your insights into cooking with mom, family remembrances and all our individual variations brings to mind too many memories and emotions to catalog. So glad you are taking the time to do this.

    • These memories are treasure to me, too! Your Mom has been my only mother for 30 years and more, and it’s such a blessing to wander down these lanes. Tonight we’re cooking Green Pepper Steak, and I’m remembering all over again evenings at your parents’ table.
