Heat a large skillet over medium-high heat. Toss chicken with 2 teaspoons of the olive oil and a generous sprinkling of salt and pepper. Add chicken thighs to hot skillet; cook, turning only once, until golden brown, 6 to 8 minutes. Transfer to a plate and set aside. Add remaining oil and then onions to the empty skillet; sautéeuntil caramel brown, 6 to 8 minutes. Stir in paprika, and then add wine; simmer for a minute or so. Add broth and return chicken thighs to skillet. Simmer until reduce by about half. Stir in sour cream; continue to simmer until sauce is thick enough to lightly coat chicken, a couple of minutes longer.
