Step by Step Instructions


Step 1

Prep all of your ingredients. Slice your onions as thinly as possible. Sprinkle your raw chicken with salt and freshly cracked black pepper. This is a good time to get your spaetzle started if you are making it from scratch.

Step 2

Brown your chicken skin-side down (if the skinless chicken is being used, it doesn't matter), and do not move it until golden and crispy. This takes about 5 minutes.

Step 3

Add the onions and a small pinch of salt to the same pot and cook until translucent and turning golden yellow. Add the tomato paste and garlic.

Step 4

Deglaze the pot with your chicken stock. Add the paprika. Add the chicken.Now, turn the heat up and let it get to a low boil.
