Chicken Paprika ina frying pan While the chicken is cooking, mix the soured cream, yoghurt and paprika in a dish. Make sure that the chicken is just simmering and stir in the yoghurt, soured cream and paprika. Don't raise the heat because that will cause the cream and yoghurt to curdle. Warm four plates for serving on.
Simmer for a further 5 minutes.
