Classic chicken stroganoff recipe


    • 1.5 lbs (700g) boneless, skinless chicken breasts, thinly sliced
    • Salt and black pepper to taste
    • 2 tablespoons olive oil
    • 1 onion, finely chopped
    • 2 cloves garlic, minced
    • 8 oz (225g) mushrooms, sliced
    • 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
    • 1 cup (240ml) chicken broth
    • 1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
    • 1 teaspoon Dijon mustard
    • 1 teaspoon paprika
    • 1/2 cup (120ml) sour cream
    • Fresh parsley, chopped, for garnish
    • Egg noodles or rice, for serving


    1. Prep the Chicken:

    Season the thinly sliced chicken breasts with salt and black pepper.

    2. Sear the Chicken:

    In a large skillet or pan, heat 1 tablespoon of olive oil over medium-high heat.

    Add the sliced chicken and cook until browned on both sides.

    Remove the chicken from the pan and set aside.

    3. Sauté Onions, Garlic, and Mushrooms:

    In the same pan, add the remaining tablespoon of olive oil. Add finely chopped onions and sauté until they become translucent.

    Add minced garlic and sliced mushrooms, cooking until the mushrooms are browned and any liquid has evaporated.

    4. Make the Sauce:

    Sprinkle 2 tablespoons of all-purpose flour over the mushroom mixture.

    Stir well to combine and cook for 1-2 minutes to remove the raw flour taste.

    Gradually pour in the chicken broth while stirring constantly to avoid lumps.

    Add Worcestershire sauce, Dijon mustard, and paprika.

    Bring the mixture to a simmer, allowing the sauce to thicken.

    5. Return Chicken to the Pan:

    Add the seared chicken back to the pan, coating it in the creamy mushroom sauce.

    Simmer for an additional 5-7 minutes until the chicken is cooked through and the flavors meld together.

    6. Finish with Sour Cream:

    Reduce the heat to low and stir in the sour cream.

    Allow the stroganoff to heat through without boiling to prevent curdling.

    Adjust seasoning with salt and pepper to taste.

    7. Serve:

    Serve the classic chicken stroganoff over cooked egg noodles or rice.

    Garnish with freshly chopped parsley for a burst of freshness.

    8. Enjoy:

    Enjoy this comforting classic chicken stroganoff with its creamy, savory sauce that perfectly complements the tender slices of chicken.


    You can customize this recipe by adding a splash of white wine or using a combination of different mushrooms for a richer flavor.
