Homemade Chicken Stroganoff


Homemade Chicken Stroganoff


There’s nothing like a big bowl of creamy stroganoff to warm you up on a quiet evening. This ancient Russian dish has been soothing the soul for generations, and my version with savory chicken and mushroom sauce is just as delicious.

I have fond memories of my mother’s beef stroganoff sizzling on the stove as a child. The delicious smell of deep-fried mushrooms wafted through the kitchen, causing my stomach to growl with anticipation. Even though I interpreted the recipe with chicken instead of beef, it still gives that nostalgic, stick-to-your-ribs feeling.

Dig this chicken stroganoff into a cold bowl and you’ll find plenty of chicken and meaty mushrooms bathed in rich, creamy mustard and Worcestershire sauce. Served over a bed of buttermilk, fried potatoes or steamed rice, this is the kind of comforting dish that makes you feel like you’re wrapped in a warm blanket.
