My great-grandmother brought this recipe from Hungary, and it's so good! The yogurt is optional.

Chicken Paprikas (pronounced Pop-ree-kash)

Chicken breasts, boneless and skinless, cut into bite-sized chunks
big can of diced tomatoes
1 green bell pepper, chopped coarsely
minced garlic
minced onion (both to taste)
1 tablespoon Hungarian Sweet Paprika (if you use Hot Paprika, you will want to die.)
1/3 C plain nonfat yogurt
some olive oil
cooked egg noodles or other pasta

Add oil to large preheated saucepan (medium high heat). Brown onion and garlic. Add tomatoes and green pepper. Stir and let the peppers soften a little (should take about 2-3 minutes). Add chicken and stir. In a minute or so, add the paprika. Stir it in! It'll turn bright red. Cover the pan and lower the heat slightly. Simmer for 20 minutes, or until the chicken is done. Just before serving over the warm egg noodles, stir in the yogurt (or sour cream). Enjoy!
