Albanian Chicken Noodles

MY best friend is Albanian and she always giving me delicious recipes. This dish is one that her mother in law and her made together. Paprika is Albanians most used spice and gives the food lots of flavor and color.

One whole chicken, cut into 8 pieces
1/2 onion, chopped
1/2 teaspoon paprika
1/3 cup carrots, chopped
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 package (500 grams) egg noodles
1/2 cup tomatoes, chopped
1 teaspoon butter
1 teaspoon Goya chicken seasoning

1. In a sauté pan, sauté chicken pieces with 1 teaspoon butter over medium high heat for 2 minutes. Add chopped onion, carrots, salt, paprika and Goya seasoning. Sauté for another 2 minutes. Reduce heat to medium/low and add enough water to completely cover the chicken, boil for 40 minutes or until chicken is completely cooked through.

2. Preheat oven to 500 F and add egg noodles onto a large oven pan. Heat noodles in the oven for 5 minutes. Add chicken broth from the chicken into pan and add tomatoes. Cook until noodles are thoroughly cooked. Remove from oven, arrange chicken in the middle and serve!

Yields: 8 servings
