Homemade Chicken Stroganoff - this stuff is so delicious and is a recipe perfect for dinner any night. Tastes better than restaurant Stroganoff!!

Hi there! Natalie from Life Made Simple here today!!

This cozy, comforting dish is perfect for those busy weeknights! It’s packed full of flavor and ready to go in just 40 minutes!

I always struggle with what to make for dinner during the week, how about you? That’s where this chicken stroganoff comes in. It only takes 40 minutes start-to-finish and it’s so filling and delicious, you’ll want to lick your plate clean- our 2 year old did!

To start you’ll want to cut and season about a pound of chicken breasts. Once you brown the chicken, transfer it to a plate and make the sauce. I like to start by browning my mushrooms. I get them nice and dark, then I add the shallot, onion and garlic. For added flavor you can pour in a few tablespoons of white wine but it’s totally optional (it does cook off). Next comes the butter and flour. Cook it for a minute or two then whisk in your chicken broth until a smooth sauce forms. Add the worcestershire sauce, thyme, salt and pepper and simmer until it thickens.

Toss in the chicken and cook for about 5 minutes so that it gets thoroughly cooked throughout. Pour in the egg noodles and sour cream and cook until everything is combined. Garnish with some freshly chopped parsley and enjoy immediately!

Our family loved this easy, flavorful, and filling meal. It’s definitely something we’ll be making over & over again. The best part is that the leftovers taste just as good, which means there’s no need to worry about what to whip up for lunch or dinner the next day, because it’s totally taken care of 🙂 I hope you’ll enjoy this chicken stroganoff too!

Chicken Stroganoff
Serves: 6-8 servings
  • 2 tbsp. olive oil, divided
  • 1 lb. chicken breasts, cut into 1-inch chunks
  • 1 tsp. garlic powder
  • 1 tsp. onion powder
  • ½ tsp. paprika
  • ¼ tsp. cayenne pepper
  • 1 tsp. salt, divided
  • 1 tsp. ground black pepper, divided
  • -
  • 2 c. sliced cremini mushrooms
  • 1 shallot, minced
  • 1 small onion, chopped
  • 3 garlic cloves, chopped
  • 2 tbsp. white wine (optional)
  • 4 tbsp. butter
  • 4 tbsp. all-purpose flour
  • 2 c. low-sodium chicken broth
  • 1 tbsp. worcestershire sauce
  • ½ tsp. fresh thyme leaves
  • 1 lb. egg noodles (whole wheat or regular), cooked and drained
  • ⅓ c. sour cream, plus more for garnishing
  • chopped fresh parsley (optional)
  1. In a large skillet set over medium-high heat, add 1 tablespoon of olive oil.
  2. Meanwhile, place the cut chicken into a bowl. Season with garlic powder, onion powder, paprika, cayenne pepper, and ½ teaspoon each of salt and pepper; toss to combine.
  3. Place the chicken in the hot pan (taking care not to overcrowd- you may need to do two batches) and brown, about 2-5 minutes on each side. The chicken does not need to be cooked throughout. Remove from the pan and transfer to a plate (continue with remaining chicken if needed).
  4. Add the the remaining tablespoon of oil to the skillet. Add the mushroom and cook until brown, about 4 minutes. Add the shallot, onion and garlic and stir occasionally until they are soft and translucent. Pour in the wine and cook for 1 minute, then add the butter and flour. Whisk continuously taking care not to burn. SLOWLY add the chicken stock, whisking to create a smooth sauce. Add the worcestershire, thyme, and the remaining salt and pepper. Bring to a simmer and allow the sauce to thicken.
  5. Toss in the chicken, turn the heat down to medium-low and continue to cook for 5-8 minutes. Add the egg noodles and the sour cream and stir until combined. Cook for 2 more minutes, add salt and pepper to taste, then remove from the heat and garnish with parsley, if desired.

    This is great because my daughter actually has a beef allergy so the traditional beef stroganoff is a no-no for us. Thanks!

    This is definitely going on the menu for next week. This dish looks delicious. Thanks for sharing.

  3. 5

    Love the Chicken Stroganoff recipe. Thank you and have a Great Week.

    I was wondering if omitting the mushrooms is an option. My family is not a fan of them and I didn’t know how it would affect the flavor of the dish. I’ve made beef stroganoff and used cream of mushroom soup, but never fresh mushrooms.

  5. 8

    The most delicious recipe ever!

    We just finished eating the chicken stroganoff, and all I can say is OMG!! we loooooooved it. Even my picky 2 year old. It is perfect since we don’t eat beef. Thank you so much!

  7. 12

    Thank you for all the nice recipes.

    I don’t have chicken breast on hand can I use boneless skinless chicken thighs?

  9. 18

    This was a tasty dish. Lighter than beef. I used chicken thighs with the fat trimmed off of it. I also added a can of condensed golden mushroom soup (Campbell’s) to add a bit more richness to it.

    I tried this last night and my daughter really liked it, but it seemed like once I added in the egg noodles that all the sauce got soaked up. Is this normal? I followed the recipe exactly, so not sure if that’s what is supposed to happen or if I should have sauce left to pour over. I personally like a lot of sauce, so was a little bummed it all got soaked up. Any advice would be greatly appreciated 🙂

      Unfortunately, once you add the noodles, it will get soaked up. You could always put a little sauce aside, to add more on top:) Or, serve it over the noodles. I’m glad your daughter liked it!! We love it at our house! Thanks so much for trying this recipe!

    This looks fabulous. I’m heading to the mountains early next month & going to make this up to the point of adding the noodles & sour cream & & complete it up there & serve it the first night with crusty French bread.

  12. 24

    Really good dinner! We added just a bit more sour cream and some shredded parmesan. It would also be wonderful with some frozen peas mixed in at the end. We will definitely make this again 🙂

  13. 26

    Thanks for this recipe, it was delicious! I used boneless, skinless thighs (cut in half) and chicken breasts cut lengthwise (someone doesn’t like breast and someone doesn’t like thighs). I didn’t cut the meat into smaller pieces though. I didn’t have sour cream on hand and it still turned out great!

  14. 28

    My son has been asking for this I will make it for him soon, but can I leave out the thyme. your recipies looks so delicious thank you

  15. 30

    This is a fantastic recipe. Would have never thought to make a chicken stroganoff! Easy recipe and overall delicious!

    Letty Blanchard :

    This recipe looks delicious. I happen to have all ingredients on hand (love when that happens!) and am making this tonight. My what-to-make-for-dinner problem has been solved!! 😊

  17. 34

    Just found this recipe today. Had everything on hand and made for dinner. Thank you, followed exactly and it was perfect. This is a keeper

  18. 36

    Is it okay to substitute sour cream with double cream or plain yoghurt?
    Can I also substitute the chicken broth with chicken stock?

  19. 38

    Please reply as I’m about to begin

  20. 39

    Hi there! I absolutely love stroganoff recipes and can’t seem to get enough of it during the cooler months. I was wondering though if your recipe would be one that I could make ahead and freeze? I’m having my first baby in about 2 weeks and while the hubby has offered to help in the kitchen to take something off of my plate, he’s not one for following recipes! If not I’ll just have to get my fix before our little one makes an appearance. Thank you so much!

  21. 41

    So do you cook the noodles before hand or not

  22. 43
    Michelle Passos :

    My family loves chicken straganoff so I’m anxious to try your recipe! A tip for those who don’t have sour cream: you can use whipping cream or plain yogurt. Also try it over rice. My family prefers stroganoff over rice rather than noodles. (((Hugs)))

  23. 45

    I found this on Pinterest and it looks AMAZING! I bought all the ingredients and am going to make it tonight! Thanks so much!

  24. 47

    Could this be done in the crockpot?

  25. 49

    I’m in the middle of making this right now. It is SOOOO delicious. Thanks for sharing the recipe.
