Now This Is What I Called The Money Shot!

First off, I know the authenticity police might be raising their eyebrows (I can almost hear Olga’s laughter as she whips up her family’s cherished stroganoff.)  But hey, my Chicken Stroganoff is pretty darn tasty too!

So, let’s dive into this creamy, flavorful delight together and explore the mouthwatering fusion of Russian tradition and my own twist!

Here Are What You Will Need For The Chicken Stroganoff:

(Full measurements listed below)

Typically, I’d go for white button mushrooms, but this time, I had a stash of baby bellas and oyster mushrooms just waiting to dive into the dish. As for the rest of the crew, here’s what we’re working with:

    • tender chicken thigh
    • yellow onion
    • shallots
    • garlic,
    • thyme
    • stone ground mustard
    • Worcestershire sauce
    • sour cream
    • caldo de pollo (powdered chicken stock)
    • egg noodles

How To Make Chicken Stroganoff, Step-By-Step:

Step 1: Begin by cubing the chicken into approximately one-inch pieces.

Step 2: Heat canola oil in a pan and brown the chicken. Once browned, set the chicken aside, but don’t discard the grease. You’ll be using it to cook the vegetables.

Step 3: Dice the mushrooms and onions to your preferred size.

Step 4: In the same pan with the leftover chicken grease, start cooking the vegetables. Wait to add the shallots and garlic until after the other veggies have softened. Cook the shallots and garlic just long enough to remove the raw garlic flavor. Adding them later in the cooking process keeps the garlicky flavor more pungent.

Step 5: Add a couple of tablespoons of butter and a generous amount of flour to create a thickening agent for the sauce. Cook this mixture for several minutes to eliminate the raw flour taste. Stir frequently to prevent burning.

Step 6: Once the flour has cooked through, start adding chicken stock gradually until you achieve a gravy-like consistency. If you were using beef, you’d use beef stock. After creating the gravy, reintroduce the chicken, and season with a dash of Worcestershire sauce, thyme, and a substantial amount of stone ground mustard.

Step 7: The final step is to incorporate a generous dollop of sour cream into the mixture. Mix everything together and your Chicken Stroganoff is ready to be served. You can enjoy it with egg noodles, rice, potatoes, waffles, or any side of your choice!

Chicken Stroganoff Cooking Tips:

Use the right cut: Opt for boneless, skinless chicken thighs for a juicy and flavorful result. You can also use chicken breasts, but thighs tend to stay more tender.

Don’t overcook: When you return the chicken to the skillet, ensure it doesn’t overcook. It will continue cooking as it simmers in the sauce.

Substitute mushrooms: If you’re not a fan of mushrooms, you can omit them or substitute them with other vegetables like bell peppers or peas.

Adjust the heat: To control the level of spiciness, you can adjust the amount of hot sauce or leave it out entirely if you prefer a milder flavor.

Customize the cream: If you prefer a lighter option, you can use Greek yogurt instead of sour cream without sacrificing creaminess.
