    Here’s a nice twist on your standard Paprika Chicken… and it happens to be a delicious twist. With this BBQ Paprika Chicken, you will basically toss everything in the slow cooker and just let it do it’s thing.

    And then you come in at the end, add in some sour cream to the sauce, and serve it over noodles.

    The dark meat, the paprika, the creamy sauce, and the kick of BBQ make this such a flavorful and succulent meal. I use chicken thighs because they are awesome for 2 reasons:

    1. Dark meat rules. Especially in the slow cooker.
    2. They are very easy to take the skin off.

    If you can find some boneless skinless chicken thighs, that would be ideal… although they cost a little more than the normal ones with skin.

    With this meal, you will be the hero of your family. I can’t tell you how good this is. If this was a dish at a restaurant, I’d order it again for sure.
