    Delicious! The whole family loves this recipe, and it's even better leftover the next day.

    I loved the chicken topping. It is easy to half and very moist. However I think it would be better over either mashed potatoes or rice. The baked potatoes were just a bit to dry for this.

    I love potatoes and this made a great topping. I also tried it over rice and noodles. My family loved it.

    Excellent - easy to make. Tastes delicious. The only change I made was to add a little Sherry to bring out the flavor in the mushrooms.

    My family loves this! I usually serve over egg noodles instead of potatoes. Quick and tasty dish for weeknight suppers.

    Delicious! A really hearty supper; agree that it would be even better over mashed potatoes, since the baked potatoes were a little dry, but yummy nonetheless. Served with brussels sprouts and garlic breadsticks.

    I would serve this to guests .Except for the time it took to cut up the chicken, this was quck and easy. I served over noodles with a side salad. I did add a 1/4 tsp of tumeric, one of our favorite spices. We will have this again.

    This was just ok. After reading the other reviews, I added more seasoning but this was still bland. I didn't mind the potatoes and like some of the others mine was getting a bit dry, but I just added a bit more chicken broth and it was fine. This recipe needs something to perk it up, I just don't know what and I didn't enjoy it enough to work on it.

    Pretty good. Not quite as flavorful as I was expecting but still filling and delicious.

    QuiteContrary, I feel your pain. I am just reading this recipe and it already SOUNDS bland to me. As a Hungarian woman who makes Chicken Paprikas from her great-grandmother's recipe -- which I will never share, sorry -- I will say the differences in this and the authentic recipe are very vast... Real Chicken Paprikas is anything but bland! (By the way, there's no "h" on the end of 'Paprikas' -- that's just the pronunciation.) Chicken should be coated in a spice rub, not tasteless flour. Also, no Hungarian fries anything in butter -- too expensive for our cuisine's humble origins! No garlic! We aren't Italian! And you'd be better served to dump all that paprika/salt/pepper into your sauce! If you aren't putting a good amount of paprika in the sauce, you aren't making Paprikas. Good luck....

    My husband loves this and says it is on the A+ List. My 4 kids ages 5-12 love it too! I have made it twice and followed the recipe almost exactly other than using Smoked Paprika rather than regular. That gives it great flavor. I also baked the potatoes in the oven rather than the microwave. One change I will make next time will be to add the paprika and flour after browning the chicken. Coating the chicken with that turns it pink making it really tough to tell when it is done. I served it with a spinach salad and garlic bread sticks and everyone loved it.

    We all loved this! We only added a salad and it was a complete meal. The only thing I did different was actually bake the potatoes rather than cook them in the microwave. I pierce them, pat them in salt and individually wrap them in foil. The salt maes them tender rather than dry. Will be adding this to my recipe book because I am making it again!

    This is really very good. Followed the recipie except I did use smoked paprika and served over mashed potatoes. Quick cooking and easy to prepare, a very nice weeknight meal.

    Never having made this, I am going to comment anyway. We do not like bland food in our family. Many years ago, I worked with an English lady who had a Hungarian husband, and she made paprikash for him frequently. For this amount of chicken, the amount of paprika would have been well over a tablespoon, and the amount of sour cream would have been at least doubled. This dish requires a bold addition of spices. Garlic is not traditionally used, however.
