Chicken paprikash

Chicken paprikash was a Hungarian dish from Earth.

The dish was a favorite of Benjamin Sisko, whose son Jake could never pronounce it right. After successfully concluding diplomatic negotiations with the Peljenites in 2371, Sisko cooked the dish for himself and his son. (DS9: "Family Business")

In 2375, the Silver Blood duplicate of Kathryn Janeway served chicken paprikash for her weekly dinner with Chakotay. Kathryn Janeway said that her grandmother used to make it for her all the time and that it was her favorite dish. (VOY: "Course: Oblivion")

In the Hungarian language, it is pronounced Csirkepaprikás ('cheerkepopreekaash'). Jake's incorrect pronunciation, in "Family Business", of the name and Sisko's correction were not in the script, which may indicate it was an inside joke during rehearsal.
