When I need to put dinner on the table fast, I often turn to Boneless Chicken Paprikash. It comes together fast. It also freezes well and tastes delicious. You can serve it with pasta or if you are feeling generous you can make delicious home made flour dumplings/ Spaetzle, all in about 30 minute or less.
