Chicken Stroganoff

I came up with this chicken Stroganoff as a way to use up roasted chicken. It was a hit. I'm usually the only one in my family who loves noodles, but even our 9-year-old son enjoys this recipe because its topped with creamy chicken. —Laura Schimanski, Coaldale, Alberta

    An interesting recipe. Wondering how to properly fry the liver, so that it turns out soft and juicy? Here the author writes that you need to fry for 3-5 minutes over high heat. Share your chicken liver stroganoff recipe, please.

    Excellent base for chicken and egg noodles! Used the chicken broth to cook the egg noodles and then added 100% of the noodles and broth to the recipe. Didn’t have mushrooms so I substituted zucchini and than figured I might as well add the carrot, green bean, corn and pea vegetable blend from the freezer! Had to increase the paprika, salt and pepper, since added so much more vegetable but turned out great!

    I really like Stroganoff, but do not eat beef anymore, and so glad to see this recipe using chicken. I followed the recipe except for the paprika (because I did not have any), and it was delicious. It was very easy and would make a great weeknight meal.

    As I am allergic to mushrooms, I leave them out but even without them, most stroganoff recipes are good so I think this would be the same as I have yet to make it. I always add extra garlic because a really good stroganoff has a nice garlicky flavor to it, the same goes for adding extra sour cream which I only add at the very end of the recipe to keep that nice sour kick from the sour cream.

    We’ve been making this since my Grandmother ordered me these wonderful magazines every year as a new bride. It’s a family favorite. I too use fresh mushrooms if I have them, but keep a large jar on hand in case I’m out. I love to use smoky Hungarian Paprika but otherwise I follow the recipe on this one. It’s perfect when I do. We use Gluten free Barrilla pasta. I love this company.

    I've been making this for years - cut it out of the magazine years ago! but I recently cleaned out my recipe shelf and I lost this recipe :( Thanks so much for still keeping out here. We roast a chicken or two regularly, and instead of using chicken breasts, this is a great way to use the left overs. I agree with using the fresh mushrooms - those work best for us.

    I enjoy trying out new recipes. My family told me this is a "keeper!!" I always use fresh ingredients to add flavor- mushrooms. Serving a large hungry family, I doubled the chicken breasts, added 2 celery stalks chopped, 1 pkg cream cheese, 2 tsp Hungarian paprika. They raved about it : )

    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.
