Braised Paprika Chicken

When we were living in Winston-Salem, we cooked at least 75% of our meals on the grill.  So when we moved to Germany, our cooking style had to change completely.  No more going to the grocery store, picking out a pretty piece of whatever was on sale, and throwing it on the grill for a few minutes.  During my four months of unemployment, I spent a LOT of time online looking for new recipes and trying to figure out what Jason would like.  I came across Braised Paprika Chicken by Aida Mollenkamp on foodnetwork.com, and I knew I had to try it.  I was a Food Network junkie, but I'd never tried one of Aida's recipes before.  A lot of the reviews commented on the amount of salt, so I've adjusted the salt to fit our tastes.  While Hubby doesn't go for the sauce, he's not a sauce guy, so I didn't expect him to.  However, I like the sauce, especially when I serve it with our favorite rolls to mop it up.  To make it a one dish meal, I add green beans and/or green peas during the last step.  My additions/comments are in italics.

Chocolate and Bread

If you are wondering where I've been, the answer is sitting on the couch with Hubby watching Frasier.  Yes, that's right, we've been lazy.  I get home between 5:00 and 7:30 during the week (depending on the day), make dinner, and then sit down to relax with Hubby.  We got to the point where we would even watch TV while eating, but after waking up to dirty dishes one too many times, we nixed that idea and now eat in the kitchen so the dishes get done before we start watching TV.
