This Chicken Stroganoff is made from simple ingredients, but is packed full of flavour. A super easy mid-week meal.
This super easy meal is a twist on the classic, beef stroganoff. Made with beautiful chicken tenderloins and a flavoursome sauce, my Chicken Stroganoff is such a comforting mid-week meal.
If you don't have tenderloins, you could easily use chicken breast or boneless chicken thighs instead. The key ingredients are the smoked paprika and Worcestershire sauce, they give the sauce the authentic stroganoff flavour. The mushrooms are pretty essential too!
How to make chicken stroganoff:
Firstly, get a large pot of salted water on to the boil. Cook your pasta according to the packet instructions. Then, heat the olive oil in a large non-stick pan and cook the onions for a few minutes. Add the mushrooms and cook for a few more minutes. Add the chicken tenderloins and cook each side for two minutes until golden brown. Cook off the butter and flour in the centre of the pan before adding the smoked paprika.
Pour in the stock and Worcestershire sauce, stir everything together then bring to a simmer. Simmer for 5 more minutes until the chicken is cooked through. Season well with salt and pepper, then stir through the sour cream. Serve immediately on top of the cooked pappardelle pasta. Garnish with chives and extra smoked paprika.
COMMON QUESTIONS ABOUT chicken stroganoff:
Can I use a different type of pasta? Sure thing. This meal is traditionally made with a wide, flat pasta such as pappardelle or fettuccine. But feel free to serve it on your favourite pasta
Can I freeze this meal? Absolutely. Freeze the chicken stroganoff in an airtight container for up to three months and cook fresh pasta when you re-heat it.
