From the Test Kitchen

This easy recipe is inspired by chicken paprikash, a classic dish of paprika-spiced chicken cooked in a flavorful tomato sauce, then finished with rich sour cream just before serving. A tender bed of jasmine rice studded with bites of sautéed zucchini is a perfect complement to every hearty, saucy bite.
