What is Chicken Paprikash?
Chicken paprikash (AKA paprikás csirke) is a well-known Hungarian dish.
Chicken Paprikash just means paprika chicken. As simple as that 🙂
I'm not Hungarian, but rather having experienced childhood in Europe, this velvety chicken stew has surely shown up on our table.

How to serve?
Traditionally, paprikash chicken is served with small dumplings or gnocchi-like noodles.
If you are too tired to make that as well, you have some great options you can make in your Instant Pot as well:
Instant Pot Mashed Sweet Potatoes
Serve it over on of the options above or even spiraled zucchini noodles and top with extra cream and some green onions to truly make this dish a dinner.
Is there any substitute for Olive oil?
If you don’t have olive oil, you can use butter or vegetable/sunflower oil.
Is there any substitute for Chicken Stock?
Yes, vegetable stock can be used as well as chicken broth.
What can I use instead of Chicken Thigh?
Chicken boneless is fine to use, chicken drumsticks as well and so are chicken breasts.
Cooking time could vary slightly.
This would depend on the type and size of the pieces as well.

Hello, the recipe calls for 2 chicken thighs but says this makes 5 servings. I hope that's a typo because that's 1 serving for me. Is it a typo? Also, if one were to use chicken breasts, which are larger than thighs, how many would you recommend to replace the thighs?
It was typo indeed. Fixed 🙂
Are your recipes for a 3 qt or 6 qt instant pot?
6 quart. Most of them can be made in a smaller (or bigger) Instant Pot as well.
