Chicken paprikash is a classic Hungarian dish. Traditionally the chicken is cooked in a delicious sauce with a harmony of spices. Then the dish is finished with sour cream adding a rich, creamy flavour. Ordinarily, chicken paprikash is served over pasta or rice. In this recipe, I cooked the pasta in the sauce allowing the pasta soak up flavours of the amazing sauce. Although this recipe started as a Hungarian dish, it ended up Italian making it magically more delicious. This one pot wonder takes only 25 minutes to cook, making this an easy gluten free weeknight meal that even the pickiest eater will love
