Chicken Paprika

Directions

Chicken is extremely popular in Israel, because it is relatively inexpensive and can be prepared in many ways. Chicken paprika is, of course, a Hungarian variation. With the amount of chicken Israelis consume, it is hard to imagine a family going without it for very long.

Cut up chicken and season with flour, salt and pepper. Brown chicken in the fat (or margarine). Remove chicken and brown onions in remaining fat (or margarine). Return chicken to the pan, sprinkle with paprika and add water. Cover and cook over low heat for 1-1/2 hours or until chicken is tender.

Ingredients

  • 1 - 4 lb. chicken
  • 3 tbs. flour
  • 2 tbs. salt
  • 1/4 tsp. pepper
  • 4 tbs. chicken fat or margarine
  • 1-1/2 cups sliced onion
  • 1 tbs. paprika
  • 1 cup boiling water

Chicken Curry

After its independence, Israel discovered a new Jewish community -- the Cochin Jews of India. Tradition has it that these Jews were exiled to India after the destruction of the Second Temple. Though outwardly resembling Indians, the Cochin Jews maintain their distinctive tradition. One of their principal dishes is chicken curry which has now been incorporated into Israeli cuisine.
