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:
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.
