Chicken Paprikash

Often you’ll find recipes for this classic Hungarian dish swimming in a heavy cream sauce. By adding just a little more sherry wine and boiling it down until until the sauce starts to thicken, a dollop of sour cream is all you need to make a healthier version that is just as luscious. While this dish may seem too fancy to be fast and easy, trust me, it is.
