Healthy Chicken Stroganoff Recipe

Healthy Chicken Stroganoff Recipe

When I prepare this meal, I often tell people it's beef Stroganoff. Because of its convincing appearance and taste, they're surprised when I later confide that it's actually chicken. —Lori Borrowman of Schenectady, New York
TOTAL TIME: Prep/Total Time: 30 min. YIELD:6 servings


  • 1 pound fresh mushrooms, sliced
  • 1 large onion, chopped
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 1-1/2 pounds boneless skinless chicken breasts, cut into 2-inch strips
  • 1/4 cup browning sauce
  • 1-1/3 cups reduced-sodium beef broth, divided
  • 1 cup white wine or additional reduced-sodium beef broth

  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 3 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • 1 cup (8 ounces) fat-free sour cream
  • 6 cups cooked no-yolk noodles


  • 1. In a large nonstick skillet, saute mushrooms and onion in butter until tender. Remove and set aside. In the same skillet, cook the chicken with browning sauce until browned. Add 1 cup broth, wine or additional broth, ketchup, garlic and salt. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat; cover and simmer for 15 minutes.
  • 2. Combine flour and remaining 1/3 cup broth until smooth; stir into chicken mixture. Add reserved mushroom mixture. Bring to a boil; cook and stir for 2 minutes or until thickened. Reduce heat to low. Stir in sour cream; heat through (do not boil). Serve over noodles. Yield: 6 servings.

"We both liked this dish, but I made a few changes to it. I only used 1/2 lb of mushrooms. I used a 14 oz can of beef broth and filled in the rest with water. I used 2 T of cornstarch in place of the flour. I replaced the browning sauce with 2 T Worcestershire sauce and 2 T low-sodium soy sauce. I omitted the salt completely since there is plenty in the other ingredients already. I would make this again."

"I have been searching for a chicken Storganoff recipe for years. I did not use browning sauce when cooking the chicken- just used about a teaspoon of olive oil. I added some worchestershire sauce for a richer flavor. By chopping and prepping in the morning this would be an easy weekinight meal. I will definitely make this again!"

"Since you're using chicken, why not use chicken broth instead of the beef broth. Sounds much better to me. I'd hold off on the browning sauce for this as well. Just my personal opinion."
