4 cups hot cooked egg noodles (about 4 cups uncooked)
Coarsely ground pepper (optional)
How to Make It
Combine first 3 ingredients in an 8-inch square baking dish. Microwave at HIGH 3 minutes or until tender; stir in broth and next 4 ingredients (broth through 1/4 teaspoon pepper). Add chicken breasts, nestling them into vegetable mixture. Cover with heavy-duty plastic wrap, and vent. Microwave at HIGH 8 to 9 minutes, turning over chicken pieces after 4 minutes.
Remove chicken from dish; set aside, and keep warm. Stir sour cream into vegetable mixture. Microwave at HIGH 30 seconds. Serve chicken and vegetable mixture over the noodles. Sprinkle with pepper, if desired.
Note: Hungarian hot paprika has a more pungent taste than regular paprika, which can be substituted.
This is a quick and easy recipe that my whole family loves. I have been making it for years and I do microwave as the recipe calls for. Don't be afraid to microwave the chicken, it comes out very moist. I have substituted regular paprika for the hot paprika if there is someone who doesn't like it hot, but it's just as good!
I can't speak to the authenticity of this recipe, and it's certainly not fancy food, but I think it's darn tasty and one of my favorite meals when the weather starts to turn cold and I need something warm and cozy and comfort-food-y. I don't use the microwave, and just saute all the ingredients in a pan because I can't bring myself to microwave chicken, but I use all of the ingredients as written and I'll make this again and again...
