CHICKEN STROGANOFF RECIPE

CHICKEN STROGANOFF RECIPE

Homemade Creamy Chicken Mushroom Stroganoff, no canned ingredients. Quick family dinner, from stove to table in 30 minutes. Freezer and slow cooker friendly.
This lightened up version of creamy chicken and mushroom stroganoff is one of our favorite quick dinners. It’s crock pot friendly too! I just started a new job and dinners like this and are my BEST FRIEND. We’re nuts about chicken recipes over here, we eat it a lot. This last month I’ve made creamy chicken and dumplings a few times already, and I’ll probably make it a few more before the month is out.

HOW TO MAKE CREAMY CHICKEN MUSHROOM STROGANOFF:
Sauté chicken to seal in all the juicy goodness.
Add as many mushrooms and onions as your heart desires.
Add spices, cream cheese, and greek yogurt (extra protein!) and stir until smooth.
Whisk together milk and flour and pour into the stroganoff, cook until mixture thickens.
Add peas and serve over noodles for a full family meal!

CAN YOU FREEZE CHICKEN STROGANOFF?
Oh yes. I freeze it (just the stroganoff, not the noodles) in a round airtight container for up to three months and and thaw it in a pan over low heat, stirring as needed. I’ve also frozen it in smaller portions for lunches and microwaved it. Both methods work well for us! I don’t freeze noodles, they don’t freeze well. I just make the noodles while the stroganoff is thawing. Cooked Creamy Chicken Mushroom Stroganoff in a white bowl with peas and a fork.
Freezer instructions for making the chicken stroganoff is below 👇🏻 in the recipe notes. I make this recipe on the stove top a lot, because it’s quick. It takes less than 30 minutes stove to table. I also love to make it in the crock pot and make the noodles close to dinner time. Crock pot instructions are also below in the notes.
