Easy Chicken Stroganoff

I have always loved Stroganoff. It’s one of my go-to comfort foods. But here’s the thing — I’m not really committed to one variety in particular. Sometimes I really go for it and make it with some thinly sliced rib-eye, sometimes I just use some lean ground beef for a super quick dinner, and sometimes… well sometimes, what I really want is this little bit lighter but just as easy Chicken Stroganoff. It’s a 30-minute one-pot meal that hits the spot every time.

This all comes together in a single skillet, but it is in a “batch” kind of method where you brown the chicken first and remove it from the pan while you build the rest of the dish. This lets you truly sear the chicken without steaming it since you’re not crowding the pan. (In other words, you build better flavor.) You only need two chicken breasts, which is generally about a pound, and you just want to chop it into bite sized pieces before seasoning it with salt and pepper, dusting it with flour, and browning it in olive oil.



2 boneless skinless chicken breasts (about 1 lb)

1/4 cup all-purpose flour, for dredging

3 tablespoons olive oil

1 tablespoon butter

8 oz cremini mushrooms, sliced

1 small yellow onion, chopped

1 teaspoon dry mustard

1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce

2-3 cloves garlic, minced

1 cup chicken broth

1/2 cup sour cream

Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper, to taste

Egg noodles, for serving



Cut chicken into 1-inch pieces. Season liberally with salt and pepper, then toss in the 1/4 cup flour.

Add 2 tablespoons of the olive oil to a skillet over medium-high heat. Working in batches if needed, cook the chicken until lightly browned on both sides, about 3 minutes per side. Remove to a plate and set aside.

If needed, add remaining tablespoon of oil before browning the second batch.

Add butter to pan, followed by mushrooms and onions. Let cook until liquid releases and cooks off, about 6-8 minutes.

Stir in mustard powder, Worcestershire sauce, and garlic. Cook 1 minute.

Stir in broth, scraping up any browned on bits from the bottom of the pan with a wooden spoon.

Add the chicken back in and let simmer for a few minutes, stirring occasionally.

Reduce heat to low, then stir in sour cream. Season with salt and pepper and serve over egg noodles or mashed potatoes. Enjoy!
