Easy Chicken Stroganoff

I love a good quick weeknight meal (like this amazing 30 Minute Garlic Shrimp Alfredo). Having quick meals in your arsenal means less weeknight stress!

I grew up eating stroganoff. My mom would make a crock pot beef stroganoff that we loved. I actually recreated it for my site a few years ago and it is one of my most popular recipes.

While Beef Stroganoff tends to be the most common, I love making chicken stroganoff. Chicken is easy to come by, totally versatile, often cheaper to buy and my kids love it! So I took the creamy, flavorful sauce of the beef stroganoff, and made a chicken version.

What is Stroganoff Sauce Made of?

Most of the time stroganoff recipes use a cream of something soup, cream cheese, sour cream etc. The normal line up of ingredients is pretty standard.


But I wanted to make a version without cream of mushroom soup or any canned soups at all, and this chicken stroganoff is it.

Instead, this recipe uses chicken stock, fresh mushrooms and some cream cheese for extra richness!

It can be adjusted to be a skinny version by using light versions of the various ingredients. A light sour cream and light cream cheese can make this a skinny dish.

One of the important parts of this recipe is the roux. Basically it is butter and flour, that you cook together so it looks like crumbs, then you whisk in your liquid, in this case, chicken stock.  And it thickens it into the nice creamy sauce which is the  perfect base for this chicken stroganoff. It is awesome, and despite the fancy name, so super easy to do.

And if you can’t find baby bella mushrooms, white mushrooms work. The baby bella just have a slightly deeper flavor profile.

Chicken Stroganoff is something my kids never complain when eating because it is so creamy and tasty.

I love to add a nice side of vegetables too! Or a salad. This Chicken Stroganoff is awesome served with some Homemade Buttermilk Biscuits to sop up any leftover sauce and of course a side of  veggies or a simple and fresh Cucumber Dill Salad.
