Chicken Goulash with Paprika Recipe

Ingredients:
1 whole chicken (about 3 1/2 pounds), cut into 8 pieces
1 tablespoon butter, softened
1 garlic clove, crushed
2 large onions, thinly sliced
1 tablespoon sweet Hungarian paprika
1/2 teaspoon salt

Pat chicken dry with paper towels. Mix butter with garlic. Use fingertips to spread mixture the breasts and thighs.

In a small roasting pan, stir onions with paprika, salt, and 1/4 cup of water.

Arrange chicken pieces in the pan. Cook chicken for about 10 minutes on 450°F, then lower the heat to 375°F and continue to cook an additional 30 minutes. Chicken is done when the internal temperature of the chicken reaches 175°F (use a meat thermometer), and the juices run clear when the thickest part of thigh is pierced with a knife.
