Paprika Chicken (S)

A great friend of mine, Sarrah brings a Dairy Free version of this recipe to church for our Sunday Fellowship Dinners after church.  It was so delicious that I begged for the recipe!  I made a few changes to make it THM friendly and asked her if I could share it with you.  This is a seriously yummy dish!

  • ½ Stick of Butter

  • 1 lb of Chicken Breasts or thighs
  • 1 cup Water
  • 3 Chicken Bouillon Cubes
  • 1 cup of diced of Tomatoes

  • 1 Cup of 0% Greek Yogurt or Sour Cream

Combine and sauté the first 6 ingredients for 5 minutes. Add chicken and cook it through. Remove Chicken (may shred or leave whole).  Add water, bouillon cubes and tomatoes to pan and cook down.  Meanwhile make a white sauce/ roux in another sauce pan by adding 2 tbsp of butter. After melting, add the Gluccie or Xanthan Gum and whisk together. Then add unsweetened  almond milk to main pan after roux thickens. May add more milk if needed. Mix in Greek yogurt or sour cream and paprika. Add Whole or Shredded Chicken back into dish. Serve by itself, with cauli rice, THM Not-Naughty Noodles or with Dreamfield’s pasta.  For your children or if you are at goal weight, you could eat this with a side of brown rice. This is great to make and then keep warm in a crock-pot!

      That’s how I’ve had it too! I need to re- do this one with a great picture.

      I don’t have her original recipe now. Wish I did since a few have asked about that. I know there was some soy products involved in place of the yogurt or sour cream. I think she uses an Earth Balance type butter spread as well.

  2. That looks amazing. Do you think the roux would taste okay with just 1 Tbsp of butter? I’m thinking this could be made FP for my next Fuel Cycle. I’m sure it’s far tastier as an S, but this might be an awesome FP.

      You can try it! I like my butter! lol This is full of flavor so I’m sure it will still be yummy.

      Hi Roxanne! I’d probably eat a salad with this or another deep S side like Green beans or broccoli. I think it would be great served over some buttery spaghetti squash as well. <3

  3. Going to make this tonight. Sounds very yummy Making the roux out of butter, gluccie and almond milk makes me a little nervous, but I’m going to give it a try. 🙂
