Food for Fuel: Chicken Paprikash-Topped Potato

July 14, 2008 at 8:12 pm | Posted in Food, Potatoes, Poultry | Leave a comment

Yesterday I abandoned my quest to use up the package of chicken in my fridge in favor of prosciutto on my pizza, so today I had to pull out yet another chicken recipe.

I planned on mowing the grass after work today, but stormy weather rescued my poor, achy little post-weight lifting body from pushing my horribly malfunctioning lawnmower around the yard. The rain also provided the perfect day to slow-roast a baked potato.

I used this recipe, but baked the potato for an hour on 350* instead of nuking it. Honestly, it could have used a little more cook time, but the rest of dinner was ready and I didn’t want it to get cold! I also used fat free Promise instead of butter and water instead of broth because I didn’t have any. I also didn’t have sour cream, and don’t really like it anyway, so I used plain yogurt (it’s good, I promise!).

On the side, I baked some asparagus spears seasoned with kosher salt and pepper. I put them in the oven for about 30 minutes at the same time as the potato. After removing them, I rubbed them with Smart Balance, apple cider vinegar, and dried dill.

Chicken paprikash is a traditional Hungarian dish. The flavors reminded me a lot of the food I’ve encountered in Germany and the Czech Republic. It was great comfort food, which is exactly what I was looking for tonight.
