Paprikash was a dish I had never heard of until recently. It's usually some kind of protein cooked with onions, red peppers, and lots of paprika. Then it's finished with sour cream. Traditionally it's served with egg noodles and makes for a delicious and hearty meal. However with the sour cream and usually fattier cuts of meat, it often is high in calories and fat. This slow cooker versions adds lot of flavor with veggies and paprika and then is finished with just enough sour cream to add a hint of creaminess. Chicken breast is also used to make this healthier.

I used nonfat Greek yogurt instead of sour cream & added more. I also shredded the chicken so it would soak up more of the liquid with all the paprika flavor in it. We ate it over egg noodles. It was very good . Will make it again.
