Trying new foods usually excites us. This recipe looked like a winner – but in taste I would suggest you do not skip the hot-paprika. We used just sweet paprika and the result was little bit bland. Healthy and high in Vitamin C worth the try. Next time we will spice it up.
Prep Time: 20 minutes Cooking Time: 20 minutes
- 2 large boneless, skinless chicken breasts
- 1 ½ cups chicken broth (or homemade stock see here)
- 1 ½ cups diced tomatoes
- 1 large onion
- 1 cup red peppers, chopped into 1-2 inch square pieces)
- 1tsp + 1 Tbsp sweet Paprika
- 2 tsp + 1 tsp Olive Oil
- 1 tsp hot Paprika (or) ¼ tsp Cayenne Pepper
- 1 tsp salt (optional)
- ½ tsp caraway seed (optional)
- ¾ cup Sour Cream
Cut onions, tomatoes and red peppers all into pieces 1-2 inches. Trim the chicken breasts of visible fat (SAVE the scraps by freezing to make homemade chicken stock). Pound chicken with something heavy until they are about 1 inch thick. Cut chicken into large cubes or cook whole. Season with 1 tsp sweet paprika, salt and black pepper to taste.
Heat 2 tsp olive oil in frying pan and cook chicken over medium-high heat about 5-7 minutes. Add 1 tsp of olive oil, onions and cook until browned (4 minutes). Add 1 Tbsp sweet paprika, 1 tsp hot Paprika and the caraway seed (optional) and cook 1 minute more. Add tomatoes and peppers and cook 2 minutes. Add the chicken stock and cook 3 minutes until the stock is bubbling. Add the browned chicken cubes or breasts, turn heat low and simmer 2-3 minutes. Turn off heat and let mixture for a couple of minutes then add sour cream stirring to combine.
You can serve with noodles or rice or in a bowl just like a stew.
Darling Daughter’s Notes: I loved the chicken and the sour cream sauce but I don’t really like the tomato skins. Mom said it took to much time to peel them. Not my favourite … sorry.

Diabetes Type 2 Suggestions: Using fresh tomatoes helps reduce sodium and is a great source of Vitamin C. Leave out the tsp of salt to lower sodium intake to and help heart health. You may use a light or fat free sour cream if you wish – however in our family we prefer to use unprocessed or ‘real’ foods that have less chemical or processed ingredients.
