Braised Paprika Chicken
Aida Mollenkamp

Recipe courtesy Aida Mollenkamp
Total Time:1 hr 5 min

* Prep: 10 min
* Cook: 55 min
* Yield: 4 servings


* 2 tablespoons kosher salt
* 2 tablespoons smoked paprika
* 1 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
* 2 1/2 pounds bone-in chicken thighs (about 6 to 8)
* 1 tablespoon vegetable oil

* 2 medium yellow onions, quartered and thinly sliced crosswise
* Salt and freshly ground black pepper
* 1 medium russet potato, small dice
* 2 cups low-sodium chicken broth

Combine kosher salt, paprika, and 1 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper. Pat chicken dry and rub the mixture all over. Place a 3-to 4-quart Dutch oven or saucepan over medium heat and add oil. When it smokes, add chicken, skin side down, and cook until well browned, about 3 minutes. Flip and repeat on second side.

Transfer chicken to a plate and drain off all but 1 tablespoon of the drippings. Return to stove on medium heat, add onions, and season with salt and freshly ground black pepper. Cook until golden and softened, about 3 minutes.

Add potatoes and broth and scrape the pan to incorporate any browned bits. Add chicken, bring to a boil, and then reduce heat to medium-low. Cover and cook until chicken is cooked through, about 30 minutes. Remove chicken to a plate and cover.

Bring sauce to a boil over medium-high heat and cook until slightly reduced, about 10 minutes. Taste and adjust seasoning, as desired. Add chicken, turn to moisten in sauce, and serve.
