  Canola oil 1⁄4 Cup (4 tbs)
  Onion 1 Large, thinly sliced
  Red bell peppers 2 , thinly sliced
  Garlic 3 Clove (15 gm), thinly sliced (Large Cloves)
  Hungarian paprika 1⁄4 Cup (4 tbs) (Plus More For Sprinkling)
  Caraway seeds 1 1⁄2 Teaspoon, ground
  All purpose flour 3 Tablespoon
  Chicken stock/Low sodium broth 6 Cup (96 tbs)
  Bay leaves 2
  Thyme sprigs 2
  Salt To Taste
  Freshly ground pepper To Taste
  Boneless, skinless, chicken breasts 2 Pound, cut into 1 inch pieces
  Fat free sour cream 1⁄2 Cup (8 tbs)

1. In a large enameled cast-iron casserole or Dutch oven, heat the oil until shimmering. Add the onion, bell peppers and garlic and cook over moderate heat, stirring occasionally, until just beginning to brown, about 8 minutes. Add the paprika, caraway and flour and cook, stirring, for 2 minutes. Add the stock, bay leaves and thyme sprigs, season with salt and pepper and bring to a boil. Simmer over moderately low heat, stirring occasionally, until the peppers are very tender and the sauce is thickened, about 1 hour.
2. Add the chicken to the sauce and cook over high heat until just white throughout, about 6 minutes. Discard the bay leaves and thyme sprigs. Spoon the chicken into bowls, and top with sour cream. Sprinkle with paprika and serve.
