  • 2 onions chopped
  • 1 red pepper chopped
  • 2 cloves of garlic
  • 1 tablespoon sweet paprika
  • 1 tablespoon vegetable oil
  • 1 tablespoon tomato paste
  • 2 cubes chicken bouillon

For Chef Ricco's Reinterpretation

  • 3 tablespoons oil
  • 2 large Spanish onions coarse chopped
  • 2 green peppers coarse chopped
  • 4 cloves garlic finely chopped
  • 3 fresh plum tomatoes coarse chopped
  • 3 tablespoons sweet Hungarian paprika very important
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • 6 chicken thighs skinless
  • 3 cups chicken stock

Instructions

For Marisa's Mother-in-Law's Recipe

  • Warm the oil in a cooking pot and add to it the onions, garlic and red pepper. From time to time mix them up till they turn to golden.
  • Add the thighs, paprika and tomato paste, mix every thing. Cook the thighs till the flesh becomes white (three to five minutes)
  • Only then add water (not much - just enough to cover the thighs) plus the bouillon cubes. Cover the pot, reduce the flame (after the water boiled) and cook for 1 hour.

For Chef Ricco's Reinterpretation

  • Heat oil in a heavy bottom pot, over low heat. Add onion, cook over low heat until golden brown.
  • Add green peppers and garlic, cook for 5 minutes.
  • Add paprika and cook for 3-4 minutes.
  • Add the chicken and cook for 5-7 minutes.
  • Add fresh tomatoes, salt and pepper cook for 5 minutes.
  • Add chicken stock and bring to boil. When it comes to a boil, turn down heat to simmer. Simmer until done, about 45 minutes.
