Dump-and-Bake Chicken Paprikash with Noodles
"There's no need to boil the pasta or pre-cook the chicken! This Dump-and-Bake Chicken Paprikash and Noodles is an entire dinner that cooks in one dish! You just can't go wrong with a quick and easy weeknight dinner that involves minimal clean-up at the end! This Chicken Paprikash is almost too good to be true...almost! In a traditional Chicken Paprikash, the meat is simmered for an extended time in a sauce that begins with a paprika-infused roux. The sweet paprika gives the dish a rosy color, and the creamy stew is typically served over egg noodles, dumplings or spaetzle. Since I don't usually have time to slow-simmer meat, and since I'd rather not dirty another pot by boiling my pasta separately, I just combine everything into one dish that bakes in the oven!"
NotesNote: This is a mild dish (and kid-friendly) because it uses sweet paprika. If you want to add a smoky or spicy flavor to the meal, add ¼ teaspoon of smoked paprika or spicy paprika to the sauce before baking.
Cooking for a Smaller Family? You can cut all of the ingredients in half and bake the Chicken Paprikash in an 8- or 9-inch square dish.
