This chicken paprikash recipe is my healthy take on a classic Hungarian favorite. If you haven’t had this delicious chicken dish before, then you are really in for a treat!

Most chicken paprikash recipes don’t include many vegetables and definitely not leafy greens, but what’s a main course without some antioxidant-rich greens? I’m taking this easy chicken paprikash recipe up a notch by including collard greens. I think you’ll agree that this dark leafy green is the perfect addition and comes out so flavorful and tender just like everything else in this tasty recipe.

What is Chicken Paprikash?

Chicken paprikash, also called paprika chicken, is a popular dish in Hungary. A typical chicken paprikash contains meat that has been simmered in a rich and flavorful sauce. Hungarian chicken paprikash always includes the spice that gives the dish its name — paprika. This bright red-colored spice comes from the chili pepper (Capsicum annuum) plant and is known for adding a distinct peppery flavor to dishes like this one. (1)

Just like other authentic hungarian chicken paprikash recipes, this recipe includes a sauce that starts out with a roux flavored with paprika and other spices. For this recipe, rather than using flour to make the roux, you’ll be using gluten-free arrowroot starch.

It’s common to serve chicken paprikash with dumplings or dumpling-like egg noodles, but this recipe skips the dumplings. I recommend serving this recipe with gluten-free noodles. Of course, you can also eat this recipe without noodles.
