Tips and Notes

How to Fix a Thin Sauce: If your stroganoff sauce is too thin, whisk in a little flour-water mixture to thicken it. It will also thicken as it cools, so be patient.

Boosting Flavor: If you find your stroganoff lacking in flavor, a splash of Worcestershire sauce or a pinch of paprika can add depth and warmth. Taste as you go to adjust seasoning.

What to Serve with Stroganoff

Pairing your Chicken Stroganoff with the right sides can take this comfort dish to new heights. For a touch of freshness, think about a crisp green salad or a tangy beetroot salad, offering a delightful contrast to the creamy stroganoff.

Consider serving it over fluffy mashed potatoes, a bed of buttery egg noodles, or even aromatic white rice, which all do a fantastic job of soaking up that rich, flavorful sauce. For added color and texture, roasted green beans, sautéed spinach, or glazed carrots can complete your meal, making each bite a perfect harmony of flavors and textures.

Instructions

How to Make Chicken Stroganoff

  1. Prep the Chicken: Cube chicken breasts into bite-sized pieces. Season with garlic powder, salt, and pepper.
  2. Dredge: Lightly coat the chicken cubes in flour, shaking off the excess.
  3. Brown the Chicken: In a large skillet, heat a mix of olive oil and butter over medium-high heat. Add the chicken and cook until golden brown, about 5-7 minutes. Remove chicken and set aside.
  4. Sauté the Vegetables: In the same skillet, add more butter if needed and sauté onions and mushrooms until soft, about 5 minutes.
  5. Add Flavor: Stir in minced garlic and Dijon mustard, cooking for another minute until fragrant.
  6. Deglaze: Pour in chicken broth, scraping up any browned bits from the bottom of the pan.
  7. Combine: Return the chicken to the skillet. Reduce heat to medium, simmering until the chicken is cooked through, about 10 minutes.
  8. Creamy Finish: Lower the heat and stir in sour cream until well combined and heated through, about 2-3 minutes. Adjust seasoning with salt and pepper.
  9. Serve: Your Chicken Stroganoff is ready to be enjoyed over a bed of your choice, like rice, noodles, or mashed potatoes.
