Devs have to eat too.

This is my first recipe post. I'm sorry to my vegan readers but this will be a recipe for a soft and tasty chicken breasts with cream and paprika, as the title so cleverly implies.


I'll keep instructions as simple as possible. This means that even measurements will be ommited very often.

Let's do this!


Chicken breasts

Cooking/Heavy cream (35% fat)

Paprika (Curry would do as well)


Vegetable oil (olive, canola, or anything really)

Fresh spinach leaves (OPTIONAL)


Cut the chicken into cubes.

Mix the chicken with a little bit of oil in a frying pan, on low heat for 3 minutes or so.

Sprinkle paprika and salt to taste and mix until the whole chicken is covered.

Add cooking cream in the pan. Enough to cover every piece of chicken after you mix the pan contents. Don't add too much to make the chickens swim, though.

Chickens can't swim. 🏊

Increase heat 🔥 to around 50%.

Add some spinach leaves if you want to.

Mix from time to time for about 10 minutes. Cut one of the pieces to make sure it's not raw.

Suggested consumption

Having it with some simple couscous or rice for extra deliciousness.
