Chicken Paprikash & cooking with astrology

The main course for our Cooking with Astrology “Aquarius” meal is….. Chicken Paprikash (Csirke Paprikash).  Technically it would translate to “paprika”, but the SEO Gods preferred “paprikash” and who am I to argue with them. 😉  This meal is very similar to Beef Stroganoff – mushrooms, sour cream/Greek yogurt, mixed with egg noodles…..Yum!

This is not a quick meal to prepare, but most of the cooking time is hands off… it’s not really that bad.  Start by sauteing the mushrooms…..

So I always place them between two sheets of plastic wrap and pound them with a rolling pin until they are an even thickness…..

Chicken contains Vitamin B6 which helps reduce the amount of damage to the walls of the blood vessels.  It is best to choose organic, cage-free chicken that has been raised without hormones and antibiotics whenever possible. 🙂

Paprika is surprisingly good for you, who knew?  It contains more than 9 times more Vitamin C than tomatoes.  It also contains significant levels of Vitamins A, E, and K which help to maintain healthy veins and capillaries.  Paprika is packed with the essential minerals Iron, Potassium, Magnesium, Phosphorous, which are beneficial in purifying the blood.  I usually only use it to make my deviled eggs look pretty. 😉  That will need to change!!
