1 onion, diced
1/4 C. (approx.) oil
2-4 tsp. sweet Hungarian paprika (more is better!)
2 lbs. chicken pieces (usually legs and/or thighs)
1 tomato, diced
1 Italian green pepper, diced
2 tsp. Vegeta (spice mix available at many supermarkets, or online HERE)
2 tsp. flour
1 C. sour cream

Saute the onion in the oil until it's translucent. Stir in the paprika until it is evenly dissolved (4-5 seconds), then add the washed and dried chicken pieces. Stir until the chicken evenly picks up the red color (30-40 seconds). Add enough water to just cover the meat, and set it to simmer at medium heat. Sprinkle in a little marjoram.

Cook the mixure until the meat is just soft and about half the liquid is gone.

Stir the flour into the sour cream, then add it to the stew and stir until it is evenly mixed.

NOTE: This can also be made with beef cubes—add wine according to taste
