Smoky Chicken Paprikash Soup inspired by When Harry Met Sally | #FoodnFlix
So, back to When Harry Met Sally. From Chef's Salad and Apple Pie a la Mode (special order or off-the-menu) at the diner that Harry and Sally stop at shortly after they first meet to Bloody Mary's on a plane to hot dog carts and Chinese Restaurants..from dinner parties to wedding appetizers to grilled radicchio and chocolate mousse pie. From Coconut Cake with Chocolate Sauce on the side to the infamous diner scene ("I'll have what she's having"). And from Salmon with Mustard Sauce ("Well, I just want it the way I want it.") to goofy talk of Chicken Paprikash and Pecan Pie. There is no shortage of inspiration to glean from this flick!
Here's a quick look at the scene that inspired my dish...
- 2 tablespoons unsalted butter
- 1 heaping tablespoon smoked paprika
- 1 small onion, chopped
- 1 tablespoon all-purpose flour
- 14 ounces crushed tomatoes
- 1 red bell pepper, finely diced
- 2 cups chicken broth or stock
- 3 cups cooked, shredded chicken (I used 3/4 of a rotisserie chicken)
- 3/4 cup sour cream
- smoked sea salt
- freshly ground black pepper
- chopped, fresh parsley
And if you'd like to join us next month, we'll be heading over to This Mama Cooks! to watch her pick, Toast.
I'm also sending this bowl of soup over to Deb at Kahakai Kitchen for this week's Souper Sunday roundup!
