2-3 lbs of chicken pieces ( I prefer chicken thighs and drumsticks (attached), as the darker meat provides lots of good flavour).
1 onion, chopped
Paprika - I used smoked
Salt & Pepper
This is for the smaller firmer dumplings (not the big fluffy ones):
3 eggs slightly beaten
3 cups flour
Salt added to boiling water and some to flour mixture (I add about 1/4 to 1/2 a tsp) but if you don't have a salt restriction you could add more.
I also add parsley, fresh or dry
Mix this together with about 1/2 cup water, mix with a fork, if it seems too firm you want to add more water. It should look a bit lumpy and gluey, but not watery. If it's too thick the dumplings will be hard. Add them to the boiling water with a tablespoon . Let them cook for about 10 minutes. Then drain and add to the cooked Chicken Paprikash. Mix it in with the juices from the chicken.
And voila!... a simple and non labour intensive dinner.
Serve with a nice cooked vegetable.
Have a great day!
