Stroganoff is such a comfort food. While it is traditionally a beef dish, it can easily be adapted for other proteins, and it is just as delicious. I personally am consuming less red meat nowadays, and with this chicken stroganoff, I get to enjoy the creaminess of the sauce with added benefits of the lighter white meat. - Sour cream could be used instead of creme fraiche - Stroganoff over rice or mashed potatoes is also great - Stock could be used instead of white wine
