Csirkepaprikás paprikás csirke

Csirkepaprikás (“CHEER-KEH PAP-REE-KASH”), sometimes called paprikás csirke, is along with gulyás probably the best known of traditional Hungarian dishes. While some gripe that the csirkepaprikás you find in restaurants in Hungary today is often inferior to that of years past, it remains a source of national pride, with one local culinary group in 2006 making a trip to the north pole just to say they cooked a pot of csirkepaprikás there.

The picture of a plate of csirkepaprikás with galuska was taken sometime in 2006 at the historic Central Kávéház in downtown Pest.
