Csirke Pörkölt
(original recipe)

600-800 g boneless, skinless chicken, cut into bite sized pieces
2 Tbsp pork fat
1 onion, cut into thin circles
1 tsp hot paprika
1 red bell pepper
1 big and juicy tomato, skin and seeds removed

Heat pork fat in a deep pan. Add onion and saute until it softens. Remove from heat, stir in paprika and add meat. Return to the heat and fry until meat is half way done. Reduce the heat to low, add salt to taste, cut pepper and chopped tomato. Cover and cook until chicken is done. Only if all the liquid evaporates, add a little water.

This is hot as hell, but I like it that way :)

    In Hungary we use yellow hungarian sweet pepper instead of the red bell pepper, and sweet paprika powder.
    Extra: Try the pörkölt with bayleaf, garlic and a pinch of grinded cumin.

      Thank you for the recipe. Next time I make it, I’ll make the adjustments you suggested.

  • mario May 23, 2011 1:58 am

    the paprika powder should be sweet, not hot.
    no tomato is needed.
    (for the Hungarian version).
