Our one-pot version has been lightened up a bit from the classic dish but keeps the creamy rich flavor of the original and is ready in under 30 minutes.


  • 6   boneless, skinless chicken thighs
  • 1 tsp (5 mL) plus 1 tbsp (15 mL) paprika, divided
  • ¾ tsp (4 mL) salt, divided
  • 1 medium onion
  • 1   red bell pepper
  • 1 tbsp (15 mL) canola oil
  • 3   garlic cloves
  • 3 tbsp (45 mL) all-purpose flour
  • ¼ tsp (1 mL) red pepper flakes
  • 12 oz. (350 g) egg noodles
  • 1 can (14 oz./420 g) fire-roasted tomatoes, undrained
  • 4 cups (1 L) low-sodium chicken broth
  • ¾ cup (175 mL) Greek yogurt
  • ¼ cup (60 mL) fresh parsley leaves


  1. Season the chicken thighs with 1 tsp (5 mL) of the paprika and ¼ tsp (1 mL) of the salt.

  2. Use the Simple Slicer on the No. 2 setting to thinly slice the onion. Cut off the top of the bell pepper and use the Scoop Loop® to remove the seeds and veins. Quarter the pepper, then use the Quick Slice to cut it into strips.

  3. Heat the oil in the Stainless Steel Nonstick Wok over medium-high heat. Add the chicken to the wok and cook, undisturbed, for 3–4 minutes. Turn and cook for an additional minute. Remove the chicken from the wok and set aside (the chicken won’t be fully cooked).

  4. Add the onion, bell pepper, and garlic pressed with the Garlic Press to the wok and saute for 3–4 minutes. Add the remaining paprika, flour, and red pepper flakes and cook for 1 minute. Reduce the heat to medium.

  5. Add the noodles, tomatoes with the juice, broth, and remaining salt and stir to combine. Return the chicken to the wok and cook, covered, for 12–15 minutes.

  6. Take the wok off of the heat and remove the chicken. To temper the Greek yogurt, place it in a small bowl. Add ¼ cup (60 mL) of the paprikash sauce to the yogurt, 1 tbsp (30 mL) at a time, until the yogurt is warm; stir to combine. Add the yogurt to the wok and stir to combine. Return the chicken to the wok and top with parsley grated with the Herb Mill.

Cook's Tips:

Slowly adding a hot liquid to dairy or eggs is called tempering. It gradually increases the temperature to keep ingredients like the Greek yogurt in this recipe from curdling or separating.
