I have to give credit to my mother — Nagymama is dad’s mother and my mom takes care of her like they are related by blood. It’s really amazing and I don’t know anyone else who would be so patient and loving to someone else’s mother (especially one who can be as stubborn as Nagymama).
Here is the recipe for all you Hungarian wannabes:
Cut one whole chicken into pieces. Be sure to cut breasts in half. Add kosher salt and black pepper to taste. Chop 1 medium onion into fine pieces.
In large frying pan, put olive oil in to cover bottom of the pan. Fry onions until golden. Add good paprika…about 4 tablespoons. Stir for a couple of minutes. Add pieces of chicken. Fry on high for a couple of minutes. Turn periodically.
Take fresh green beans and cut of the tips. Microwave them in a little bit of water for 3-4 minutes. Saute slivered almonds in butter. Add green beans.
Enjoy with your Hungarian-Canadian-American family. If you’re lucky, dessert is a trio of ice creams picked up from the grocery store.Tags: chicken paprikash, nagymama
