Edith’s Paprika Chicken

This is one of my absolute favorites from my childhood. Which is good — Mom made it often. The chicken was always tender, and oh-so moist and flavorful.

But as a kid I wouldn’t touch the rice! Probably because of the color and chunks of onion. As an adult? Love the stuff!

Edith’s Paprika Chicken

  • 3 lb fryer, cut up
  • 1/2 cup onion, minced

Brown chicken in oil, seasoning with salt & pepper. Dust with enough paprika to color the meat dark. Saute onion until clear. Add more paprika to color meat. Add 1/2 cup water and simmer until chicken is cooked. Remove chicken to warm platter, & stir rice into drippings until well mixed.
