  • Yield: 4 servings (serving size: about 4 ounces chicken, 1/2 cup sauce, and 1 cup noodles)


  • 2 chicken breast halves (about 1 pound), skinned
  • 2 chicken drumsticks (about 1/2 pound), skinned
  • 2 chicken thighs (about 1/2 pound), skinned
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt, divided
  • 1/2 teaspoon black pepper, divided
  • Cooking spray
  • 2 cups chopped onion
  • 1/2 cup fat-free, less-sodium chicken broth
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons Hungarian sweet paprika
  • 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • 1 cup low-fat sour cream
  • 4 cups cooked medium egg noodles (about 2 3/4 cups uncooked pasta)


Sprinkle chicken with 1/4 teaspoon salt and 1/4 teaspoon pepper. Heat a Dutch oven coated with cooking spray over medium-high heat. Add chicken; cook 6 minutes or until lightly browned. Remove chicken from pan.

Add onion; sauté 5 minutes or until lightly browned. Return chicken to pan. Stir in broth and paprika; bring to a boil. Cover, reduce heat, and simmer 30 minutes or until chicken is done. Remove from heat.
