Paprika infused sauce

The chicken breast is a perfect fit for a paprika sauce this one. It’s mild taste fits the sauce beautifully. We have chosen to make a paprika sauce with garlic, tomato purée, cooking cream, and then add in our carrots. It’s a mild sauce that just tastes great with chicken and rice. 

You can easily add other vegetables if you desire. Bell pepper, beans, peas or zucchini would go great in this recipe. This is a meal that’s perfect for emptying out the fridge with whatever you may have available.
