About this recipe: This chicken perkelt recipe is an Eastern European favourite. It's fantastically simple to make and your family will love it. My husband asks for this at least once a week.
I loved the results that I got - but I did substantial tinkering! I used fresh mushrooms instead of canned, and instead of mushroom-juice and chicken boullion cubes, I used two cups of strong, homemade chicken stock, and thickened it just a touch. I also used sharp paprika instead of mild, and increased it to about three tablespoons. I used eight boneless chicken thighs. Plenty of gravy for mixing with the rice. Rave reviews. I definitely will make this again! - 12 Apr 2002 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
I was raised on this chicken recipee, although slightly different...try adding a sweet juicy tomato and some chunks of green pepper for even more flavour, omit the sour cream and cook till sauce is reduced and thickened...and only use Hungarian paprika, makes a world of difference. This dish can also be made with stewing beef or pork. YUM!!! - 28 Jul 2005 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
With the changes I made, it will definitely be repeated over and over. I seasoned the chicken thighs (all I had) with garlic powder, adobo and pepper. I also added about 1/2 cup of white wine and used fresh mushrooms. Other than these changes I followed the recipe exactly and it was delicious!
