View Full Version : Review: Chicken Paprikash Superfast Suppers
10-24-2001, 06:26 AM
Yesterday, after stopping at 8 different stores to hunt down Cooking Light's Superfast Suppers, I finally found it at Whole Foods.
I made the Chicken Paprikash for dinner last night and served over wide egg noodles. Excellent. It was nice and saucey and had a bit of a kick to it. It also was done in less than 1/2 hour. Sometimes the 1/2 hour promised doesn't work for me.
In all fairness, I did do some substitutions, so I might not be the best reviewer. First, I made this on top of the stove as opposed to the microwave. I also didn't have Hot Paprika so I substituted Sweet Paprika with some Cayenne Pepper.
This recipe goes in our repeater file for some quick nights.

Thanks for this review. I finally found the Superfast issue too after checking several stores, but have not tried anything yet. I will try this recipe though and, like you, will probably make it on the stove. I just do not enjoy cooking in the microwave.

Thanks CCHHBB! I saw this recipe tonight and was thinking I'd try it next week. I'll probably use the same paprika as you.

I made this last night. I couldn't bring myself to cook it in the microwave, so I cooked it on the stove. I didn't have hot paparika either (looks like it is time for another Penzey's order :D), so I used sweet paparika.
My boys, my darling BF and a good friend of ours who was over to watch Survivor, gobbled this up. We all liked it quite a lot. Another repeater.

I just bought the issue last night.. I leafed through it, and really liked what I saw! Glad to hear this recipe was good--it's on my "to try list" & sounded yummy when I first read it.
Thanks for the reviews and tips.. Dinners in 30 min. or less are looking better all the time!! ;) Zinnia

I made this last night and am having the leftovers for lunch. Like Cheryl and Robin, I just couldn't make it in the microwave. I am embarassed to say that I had a brain cramp:o and didn't realize that it was a cook in the microwave dish:o. Most of the time, I do look at the cooking instructions before deciding to make something. The only dish of this nature that I do is the rosemary roasted potatoes from earlier this year.
I used chicken strips instead of breasts and had sweet paprika instead of hot. After being initially skeptical about it, it came out much better than I thought it would and tastes even better today.
When I went to get it out of the microwave, it had a very pleasant aroma.
If I make it again (as I have so many things to try), I will add 1 more clove of garlic and take Cheryl's advice and add a little bit of cayenne.

i am bringing this thread up, because i have recently made & really enjoyed the chicken paprikash topped baked potatoes from the super fast section.
but after seeing these reviews, i am really confused.
will probably make it on the stove. I just do not enjoy cooking in the microwave.
First, I made this on top of the stove as opposed to the microwave.
I couldn't bring myself to cook it in the microwave, so I cooked it on the stove.
I just couldn't make it in the microwave.
the reason why i am confused because the only thing that you make in the microwave is the potatoes. the chicken IS made on the STOVE-TOP as per the recipe directions. the recipe only called for the baked potato to be microwaved to keep the cooking time under 30 minutes. which i was fine w/cooking the baked potato in the microwave instead of running my oven for 45-50 minutes. and it really tasted the same as it would of in the oven.
are you guys looking at a DIFFERENT recipe than me? i just was really confused by this thread, as if i have a totally different recipe than you guys or something. is there another similar recipe out there?

I haven't made this recipe. but in my opinion there is no comparison between a baked potato done in the oven and one done in the microwave. You don't geta crispy skin if you do it in the micro. And I love my crispy skin!
some people don't like crispy skins though. or they don't care one way or the other. in which case the micro is the way to go!

i guess i have no preference on skins, i don't really eat them. i just scoop out the yummy potato inside.
i never thought about people eating the skins & having a preference. thanks for pointing that out!

I think we should get together for a potato party!
I love the skins and rarely eat all of the inside stuff. I'll take your skins and you can have my inner potato stuff.

I'll take your skins and you can have my inner potato stuff.
sounds like a good trade-off. :)

These are 2 different recipes.
Cheryl's original post referred to the Chicken Paprikash recipe from last year's supplement titled "Super Fast Suppers".
I belive the Chiken Paprikash Topped Potatoes were in the March 2002 issue.

thanks jena! i love paprika flavored stuff. glad to know there is another recipe!
anyone have the other recipe? the one talked about in cheryl's original post? i only have the chicken paprikash topped baked potatoes one- that was what i was confused about!
