This Chicken Paprika is an amazingly flavorful chicken recipe 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!
