Chicken Paprika

Another food club recipe I adapted to suit SW! Original recipe used 2 tablespoons flour, I used one, and used 150mls cream and I’ve subbed with fat free fromage frais. I also added a pepper and some cayenne!
This is a really quick and very tasty dish!! The green beans with almonds accompanying it go really well!


Serves 4
4 chicken breast, cut intro strips
2 cloves garlic
1 onion, finely sliced
1 red pepper sliced
100g mushrooms, sliced
300ml chicken stock
2Tsp Worchester Sauce
150g fat free fromage frais
6 tsp paprika
1 tsp smoked paprika (optional)
1 tsp cayenne (optional but adds a little kick!)
1 tablespoon flour (4 syns)
100g basmati rice
2 tbsp coriander, finely chopped (optional)
salt and freshly ground black
½ Gl white wine

Toss the diced chicken fillet with the paprika and flour, until the chicken is nicely coated (it should be a nice deep pink colour)

1.Cook the rice as per instructions and than toss half of the coriander through

2.Heat a pan with spray oil, add garlic then Add the chicken and fry until chicken is sealed. Remove with a spoon and set aside. (don’t over cook chicken here as you will be adding it the sauce later and gently simmering it)

3.Add the onion to the pan, add more spray oil, and heat gently until softened, add small amounts of stock at a time
To prevent sticking. Add the mushrooms and cook for a further 2 minutes or so, add Worchester sauce.

4. Pour in the wine and gather any residue of paprika and flour left on pan

5.Pour in the chicken stock and turn the heat up to high. Reduce the stock by about half and then turn the heat down to a simmer. Add the chicken to the pan, season,and simmer until the chicken is cooked through.
6. Reduce heat to lowest and stir in the fromage frais then serve.
7. Serve, accompanied by the rice an sprinkled with remaining coriander

*I also steamed some green beans and served with 20g toasted sliced almonds – which is 7 syns between 4 portions

The dish should be a nice rich red colour when finished add more paprika if not the required consistency, add Tabasco for an extra kick
