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.

  1. I mean this as a total compliment – this tasted just like some of my favorite microwave TV dinners but I assume healthier and cheaper. Really tasty!!5 stars

  2. I have made this recipe a few times for different people and they all really enjoyed; even the kids had seconds! I like that I can use cream cheese for this recipe (had no idea). I know this is a recipe I can make just about anywhere and it will be a hit. So amazingly delicious!5 stars

  3. I made this for Sunday dinner. It was incredibly easy to put together.
    So creamy and awesome. I did heaping half teaspoons of the spices. I didn’t have chicken stock on hand so I used chicken broth.
    Next time I’ll make it with stock as the flavors I know will be deeper.
    Thanks for the great recipe, I’ll definitely be making this again!
    Although I was wondering if you can use reduced fat cream cheese and sour cream?5 stars

    1. I’m so happy to hear that you loved this recipe Jennifer! Reduced fat ingredients can change the texture somewhat, but I do think it would work fine in this recipe. Enjoy, and let us know if you try it!

  4. I love that you didn’t use any canned soups in this! I also love that it’s a 30 minute meal! Perfect for weeknights!5 stars

  5. I do love a stroganoff for dinner although I usually opt for beef or mushroom. I must give chicken a try, it looks absolutely delicious.5 stars

  6. Made this for dinner last night and it was a huge hit with the hubby. We are missionaries living in Kenya and it is a treat to make meals that are “comfort foods” occasionally. Chicken Stroganoff will be added to our “comfort” list! Thanks for such a delicious recipe!!!5 stars
