Original recipe from Vojvodina-Serbian Paprikash with Chicken Legs

Updated: Jun 16

  • This is an original Vojvodina / Serbian stew, I usually make it differently and much richer, who don't have enough ingredients definitely can do it with this recipe. Follow recipe.

Ingredients: easy total time: 90 min. 4 servings
  • 2 kg of drumsticks

  • 1 kg of onion/ finely chopped

  • 2 teaspoons salt or to taste

  • 1 teaspoon black pepper

  • 4 top full spoons of sweet ground red pepper

  • 1/2 teaspoon ground hot peppers to taste

  • 1 Tablespoon fat

  • 1 bunch parsley/ finely chopped

  • 130 g tortellini stuffed with meat/I have also added tortellini to this because my husband loves them ;)

  1. Chop the onion and fry it in fat at a low temperature, stirring occasionally.

  2. Fry on low heat, taking care not to burn, stirring occasionally and reducing the heat if necessary.

  3. When the onion softens and turns yellow, add the chicken drumsticks.

  4. Season with salt and pepper, add ground red pepper, and enough water to cover the meat by two fingers (2 cm).

  5. It is better to pour a little more water at the beginning, because it will certainly evaporate, rather than burning your meat.

  6. Cook for about 1 hour on low heat.

  7. The amount of liquid depends on whether you like to eat stew/stew with a spoon or a fork.

  8. Depending on the taste, you can make a more liquid broth, and cook noodles or dumplings in it immediately. The dough is always placed about 5-7 minutes before the end of cooking! (I always cook the dough separately and only then add it to the stew.)

  9. In this case, make sure that the broth does not stand for a long time so that the dough does not absorb all the softness.

  10. Finally, add finely chopped parsley and turn off the heat.

  11. Serve the boiled soup with boiled pasta, boiled potatoes or a side dish of your choice.

Buon appetito!


  • If you like thicker soups, you can add 1 tablespoon of flour mixed with very little water during cooking after 40 minutes, add to the stew/broth and mix well and cook for another half an hour. You can also use chicken wings with or just small chicken drumsticks, as you prefer. The side dish can be fantastically boiled potatoes, kačamak, or some pasta of your choice.

  • You can make your own dough balls for this paprikash, you will need 2 eggs, a little salt, 1 tsp dry parsley and about 7-8 spoons of flour. The dough should not be hard, but soft when you add it to the broth. Mix with a fork and make rolls as desired with the help of a small spoon.
