Gram’s Chicken Paprikash

There’s nothing like Grandma’s cooking. When I was a kid every Sunday we’d eat dinner with my Gram. Sometimes we’d go to her house and sometimes she’d come to us. We ate all sorts of things, but there was a clear favourite – chicken paprikash. And almost more important than the chicken itself was the dumplings, perfect little egg noodles dipped in wonderful papikash sauce. Before I moved away from home, I made her dig out the recipe so I could copy it. And now, every once in a while, when I’m feeling like a need a touch of home, I pull it out and try to replicate it. Somehow, it’s never quite like Gram used to make, but it’s close enough. Last week was our last house group meeting for the term, so I made this to celebrate. Here’s how it works:

There was a vegetarian coming to the dinner. So I also made an adapted version with mushrooms and white beans instead of chicken. It worked out really well:

    Grandmother’s recipes are the best! It’s so wonderful that you had a family tradition of eating with her every Sunday, I hope we can do something like that in my family as well 🙂
