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.

  • 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

  • 1/8 teaspoon paprika
  • Pepper to taste
  • 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • 1 cup (8 ounces) sour cream

  1. In a large skillet, cook bacon until crisp. Drain, reserving 2 tablespoons drippings; set bacon aside.

"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."

"I made this but without the bacon. Was really nice. I like it with mashed potatoes as oppose to noodles."

"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."

"Delicious, but I agree that the sauce should be a little thicker. I did make it without the bacon."
