Chicken Paprika... An amazingly flavorful chicken that is coated in an incredible batter and has an unbelievably delicious gravy. This will be one meal you will want to eat again and again!

Growing up, we had quite a few dinner staples in my home. My mom is such a talented cook and actually created nearly every recipe she ever made while I was living with her. This Chicken Paprika happened to be one of my absolute favorites of hers and for good reason.

This meal is special for so many reasons. It begins with pan seared battered chicken that is then baked cooked to perfection. The gravy, though, is what completely blows this dish out of the water! I am not joking when I say this entire recipe is spectacular.

This dinner has such an incredible flavor that is sure to become a new family favorite!

    This looks amazing. I'll definitely try out out! The only thing I'll do is save our the flour mixture before dredging the chicken. I know you cook it, but still. That's just me. I also will probably throw in some chopped mushrooms. I think it would pair perfectly with the chicken and gravy. Yum!

      So I did make this. I pounded the chicken flat to help it cook faster and be crisper. It fully cooked in the pan, I just kept it warm in the oven while making the gravy. With the gravy I sauteed mushrooms in the butter before adding the flour. They were delicious! This whole meal was very yummy. I liked the mix and balance of spices. Definitely will make again!

    This sounds really good! I'm just wondering if the coating gets soft when it's baked covered?

    1. Chef in Training

      yes it does get softer, but it is absolutely DELISH :)

      We actually didn't cover ours, and it was perfect! Having this for lunch today and can't wait for my lunch hour! Thanks for the amazing and easy recipe!

  3. Brielle

    Sounds very delicious. Will definition give it a try, maybe even tomorrow.

    When you say 1/2 cup flour mixture do you mean just flour?

    1. Chef in Training

      no, it is referring to the flour mixture with spices that you coated the chicken again. You save it for later to retrieve a 1/2 cup for gravy. I hope that makes sense :)

  5. Terri

    Do you think I could use smoked paprika? I LOVE smoked paprika.

  6. Louise

    Do you use bone in or boneless chicken breasts?

    1. Chef in Training

      I use boneless skinless chicken breasts. I have updated the recipe to state so. Thanks so much for asking for clarification :)

  7. Liz

    Sweet or spicy Paprika?

  8. JenniHusker

    I would cut the amount of paprika in half. My family would love it.

    What is flour mixture?

    1. Chef in Training

      it is referring to the flour mixture with spices that you coated the chicken again. You save it for later to retrieve a 1/2 cup for gravy. I hope that makes sense :)

    Thank you for the nice recipe.

  11. Jen

    Do you think this would freeze okay? Putting the chicken together, then flash freezing and either packaging the ingredients for the gravy separately, or making the gravy and just heating up?

  12. Candyce

    This sounds delicious! Definitely going to try it out soon.

  13. Brandi

    Could u opt out on the cyanne pepper? Don't like spicy??

  14. Hillary

    Can use coconut milk, chicken broth, Greek yogurt?

    This is absolutely delicious! Made it last night and followed the recipe to a "T". Do start your gravy once the chicken is in the oven because it does take a while to thicken and it really makes the dish. Also, the cayenne pepper and spices are a perfect mix and it is not too spicy (I can't eat spicy foods).

    I made this last night for my family, and it was so good. I followed to recipe exactly, and it was perfect!

    This was a total waste of time and money!! The chicken was sort of bland and soggy. The only word for the gravy was awful!! My husband will usually eat anything that I make. He tried 1 bite and put the lid back on and walked away!!

    Made this with bone-in chicken thighs and legs and it was delicious! The recipe is flavorful, NOT spicy. The gravy does take a while to thicken, so, do start making it as soon as the chicken is in oven. I will certainly be making this again for sure. Thanks for sharing!

  19. Katrina

    So glad that I found your blog today! This looks INCREDIBLE! I'm making it Monday now, can't wait to try it :)

    Definitely an indulgence, but SO good!! It was actually pretty easy for a weeknight as well. I served it over sweet potatoes because that's all I had on hand. It was amazing!! This is something I'd totally serve to company.

  21. Heather Barno

    This is amazing, definitely a keeper. I just didn't cover the chicken in the oven.

    This was absolutely delicious & all my family loved it so needless to say it will definitely become a favorite. The only downfall I had was with the gravy, it split....twice! Both times after I added the milk, even though I added it slowly as per recipe. I remade my own version of gravy with less butter and still tasted yummy.

    I love your recipes.... but I wonder if you may add the calories per portion or in total.
    Thanks

  24. audrey schwegler

    Make this tonight. My husband loved it. Was easy to make and delicious. The only things I did different was I used chicken strips and baked uncovered. Thanks for a recipe I'll make again.
