4 second joints or thighs

Paprika

1 c. chicken broth (13 3/4 oz.)
1 tbsp. cornstarch
1 c. plain yogurt

 

Remove skin from chicken parts, rinse and pat dry. Sprinkle with salt and turmeric. Sprinkle generously with paprika. Heat butter in large pan until it foams. Add chicken, 1/2 at a time, and brown on both sides. Remove pieces from pan as they brown.Pour all butter from pan. Add scallions. Saute 1-2 minutes. Return chicken to pan. Add chicken broth. Bring to a boil, cover and reduce heat. Simmer 30 minutes. Remove lid. Continue to simmer until broth is reduced by half.

Mix cornstarch with 2 tablespoons broth. Remove chicken from pan. Keep warm. Stir cornstarch into broth, cook stirring until thick and clear. Stir in yogurt. Serve sauce with chicken. Serve over cooked rice.
