  • Yield: Serves: 6
  • Cook time: 1 Hour
  • Prep time: 10 Minutes


  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 12 bone-in, skin-on chicken thighs
  • Salt and pepper
  • 1 onion, halved and thinly sliced
  • 2 tablespoons paprika, hot or sweet
  • 1 tablespoon tomato paste
  • 1 cup low-sodium chicken broth
  • 1/2 cup sour cream
  • 12 ounces egg noodles, cooked, optional


1. Warm oil in a skillet over medium-high heat. Dry chicken; season with salt and pepper. Working in batches, cook chicken in a single layer until golden, turning once, about 10 minutes total. Remove to a plate. Repeat with remaining thighs.

2. Pour off all but 1 Tbsp. fat. Reduce heat to medium and cook onion, stirring, until softened, about 3 minutes. Add a little broth if onion begins to burn. Stir in paprika, tomato paste and chicken broth.

3. Add chicken to skillet. Bring to a simmer over medium-high heat, cover, reduce heat to medium-low and cook 15 minutes. Remove lid and flip thighs. Turn heat to medium and simmer, uncovered, until chicken is cooked through, 10 to 15 minutes. Remove chicken to a platter.

4. Remove skillet from heat. Whisk in sour cream. Season with salt and pepper. Serve chicken and sauce over noodles, if desired.
