Lightened Up Chicken Stroganoff

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 reveal that it's actually chicken. —Lori Borrowman of Schenectady, New York

    We liked this dish. I've never heard of Chicken Stroganoff before.

    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!

    Sodium level is excessive, needs to be cut by 75% if to be considered "healthy".

    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.
