How to make slow cooker BBQ paprika chicken

Print this recipe
Paprika chicken, also known as chicken paprikash, is a traditional Hungarian dish that's typically finished with a little sour cream and begun of course, with lots of paprika. The recipe below changes things up a bit. The paprika definitely stays, but barbecue sauce is added to the tomato sauce; and it's a pleasant surprise.
Also, instead of finishing it with sour cream, I finished it with some Greek yogurt. For no real reason really, other than I wanted to do something different. Now, I'm happy I did! Of course, if you want to keep it truly authentic, sour cream is definitely the way to go!
