Beregszász (Berehove), located in the south-western part of Ukraine, 6 km from the Beregsurány-Asztély Hungarian-Ukrainian border crossing point, has the largest Hungarian community in Transcarpathia and serves as a significant Hungarian cultural center, preserving and celebrating the rich heritage of the Hungarian people in the region. One culinary gem of Beregszász is sour cream chicken stew, which is a comforting and hearty dish.
The stew’s preparation involves simmering the chicken in a flavorful broth infused with the aromatic essence of bay leaves and paprika. Mustard adds a tangy kick, creating a harmonious balance of flavors. To achieve the stew’s creamy and luscious texture, the stew is thickened with a flour and sour cream mixture.
