Stroganoff is such a comfort food. While traditionally a beef dish, it can easily be adapted for other proteins, and it is just as delicious. With this creamy chicken stroganoff, I get to enjoy all the lovely sauciness with the benefits of the lighter white meat. —Leo Lo, Norfolk, Virginia

  • 8 ounces uncooked wide egg noodles
  • 1-1/2 pounds boneless skinless chicken breasts, cut into 1/2-inch-thick strips

  • 1-1/2 teaspoons salt, divided
  • 3/4 teaspoon pepper, divided
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil

  • 1 cup dry white wine or chicken stock
  • 1 cup chicken stock
  • 1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
  • 1 tablespoon Dijon mustard
  • 1 cup creme fraiche or sour cream
  • 1 tablespoon minced fresh Italian parsley


  1. Cook noodles according to package directions; drain.

  • Creme fraiche is similar to sour cream but slightly thinner. It is not as sour as sour cream, and is richer.
