Creamy Paprika Chicken

There are days when I don’t quite know what to do for dinner. Instead of putting it off until later to decide, I get started by popping some chicken breasts or a small roast into the crockpot. By afternoon, the meat is cooked and all I have to do is make a few additions , making it a quick fix dinner.

Here’s what I made yesterday. By evening, the chicken was ready and waiting to be shredded up. It just needed the sauce and the noodles. In 15 minutes, dinner was ready. And oh, was it delicious. I hope you give it a try.
