I am always looking for super simple chicken dishes that can be made quickly on busy nights. Some of my favorite recipes include Greek chicken with potatoes, chicken with cornflakes, and this tasty chicken stroganoff.
Everyone has heard of beef stroganoff, but have you ever experienced chicken stroganoff? It's a lighter version of the beef counterpart, and it's also much quicker to make. Serve your stroganoff over egg noodles, then watch the rave reviews!
What is stroganoff?
Stroganoff is cubes or strips of meat cooked in a pan with a creamy sauce. The dish is often served over noodles. Stroganoff comes from Russia, but combines the culinary traditions of France and Russia in a popular dish. It features a French bread sauce cooked with Russian flavors, such as sour cream. My recipe contains more international elements, including Worcestershire Worcestershire sauce and paprika which is popular in Hungary.
Stroganoff dates back at least to the 1890s, where it received its name from the wealthy Stroganoff family. The dish may have been around longer and was served to the Stroganoff family, but no one knows for sure.
How is the chicken stroganoff prepared?
To make the chicken stroganoff, sauté some chicken until golden and cooked through and remove from the pan. Prepare the sauce by cooking diced onions and sliced mushrooms with butter in the pan. Add garlic and cook for a few seconds. Add the flour to the vegetables and let it cook for a minute. You are now ready to add chicken stock and seasonings. After the sauce boils and thickens a bit, add the sour cream and chicken. Once the chicken is hot and dipped in sauce, serve the stroganoff over egg noodles with a pinch of parsley on top.
Tips for chicken stroganoff
- I like chicken drumsticks for this recipe because they are more tender and flavorful than chicken breasts. That said, if you have a strong preference for chicken breasts, feel free to use them.
- I used cremini mushrooms, but other great options include mushrooms, portobello mushrooms, or oysters.
- This sauce works best with high-fat sour cream: Low-fat sour cream can sometimes separate when heated.
- The chicken stroganoff is great for leftovers and you can chill it for up to 3 days.
- Without parsley on hand? Try fresh thyme, dill, or green onion instead.
