Chicken Stroganoff Recipe

Chicken Stroganoff Recipe

I came up with this recipe, a variation on beef Stroganoff, as a way to use up roasted chicken. It was a hit. I'm usually the only one in my family who enjoys noodles, but even our 9-year-old son will have more when they're topped with the creamy chicken.
TOTAL TIME: Prep/Total Time: 30 min. YIELD:4 servings


  • 4 bacon strips, diced
  • 1 pound boneless skinless chicken breasts, cut into 1/4-inch strips
  • 1 medium onion, chopped
  • 2 jars (4-1/2 ounces each) sliced mushrooms, drained
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1-1/2 cups chicken broth
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon paprika
  • Pepper to taste
  • 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • 1 cup (8 ounces) sour cream
  • Hot cooked noodles
  • Additional paprika, optional


  • 1. In a large skillet, cook bacon until crisp. Drain, reserving 2 tablespoons drippings; set bacon aside.
  • 2. In the drippings, cook the chicken, onion and mushrooms until the chicken is no longer pink. Add garlic; cook 1 minute longer. Add the broth, salt, paprika, pepper and bacon. Cover and simmer for 10 minutes.
  • 3. Combine flour and sour cream until smooth; add to the skillet. Bring to a boil; cook and stir for 2 minutes or until thickened. Serve with noodles. Sprinkle with paprika if desired. Yield: 4 servings.

"I have been making this since 2009 and it is excellent. Today I added German deli homemade bratwurst and it added another good flavor to the dish. Everyone loved it!"

"I made this for the first time, tonight. The flavor is superb. I only used I bottle of mushrooms as I thought that would be plenty. Because I am not a fan of mushrooms, next time I will add some celery in place of the mushrooms. Thank you for making this recipe available as it quenched my craving for stroganoff."

"This is not the same old, same old chicken dish! SOOO rich and flavorful---hubby and kids clean the platter. What ISN'T good with some bacon in it?! And I usually add a couple of extra strips in there.

I DO use fresh mushrooms, however, since the canned kind seem a bit rubbery--I almost never buy canned mushrooms anymore for that reason. But that's a personal thing."

"This was fantastic. I think the bacon played a big role in the flavor so I would suggested not omitting it. And for those of you who count calories, according to my estimates 1 serving is about 503 calories. That includes 1 1/2 cups of cooked egg noodles."

"This is very good but I found that the sauce was quite thin. Needed to add more flour or corn starch."

"This is delicious! Unfortunately, my husband doesn't care for the bacon in it, so I don't make this as often as I would like. If it were up to me, I'd make it at least once a month! Have served this to guests a couple of times, and both times I was asked for the recipe!

I use fresh mushrooms instead of the jarred ones, as I usually have some on hand."

"My husband loves beef stroganoff, and I offered to make it for his birthday dinner. He asked that I make it with chicken instead as he's trying to cut back on red meats. I found this recipe, and my family was delighted with the results. It was flavorful, and the sauce was perfect. I served it with egg noodles."
