Easy and flavorful weeknight meal!
I thought I would post my Chicken Stroganoff which is a spin off of my Ground Beef Stroganoff. They are both similar but yet different.

Another one of those recipes I have been making FOREVER and not sure why I haven’t posted it yet.

How to make chicken stroganoff
I am using chicken breast just because it’s easy to slice and cook up quickly. I have also made this with chicken thighs as well.
Start by browning the chicken, onions, and mushrooms. 

Mushrooms nicely browned because it will add a lot of flavor and color to the gravy.
Stir in the garlic and flour and cook for 1 minute. Eliminates that raw flour taste. Whisk in the broth and white wine and scrape up all the browned bits from the bottom of the pan. (This is where all the flavor is at!!)
Stir in the Worcestershire and mustard and simmer on low until thickened. Remove from the heat and stir in the sour cream.
Now decisions on what to serve this over. Traditionally stroganoff is served beside fried shoestring potatoes or over mashed potatoes (and this happens to be my favorite way) but here in America, it’s often served over egg noodles.
Both are very good and you can’t go wrong with either choice!

What is stroganoff sauce?
Stroganoff sauce is a Russian sauce made from pieces of browned meat (normally beef) and served in a creamy sauce made with sour cream.

It is a very old dish dating back to the 19th century and now has many variations of the recipe throughout the world.

As I mentioned previously it is typically served over mashed potatoes and occasionally rice and not egg noodles as we typically see it.

Laboratory studies have shown that allicin reduces the production of cholesterol by inhibiting the reductive enzyme HMG-CoA in liver cells.
Allicin also reduces the stiffness of blood vessels by releasing nitric oxide (NO), which lowers blood pressure. It also prevents the formation of blood clots, and has a fibrinolytic effect in blood vessels, which helps reduce the risk of diseases of the coronary arteries and peripheral blood vessels and stroke.
Scientific research has also found that consuming garlic reduces the risk of stomach cancer.
Allicin and other essential ingredients in garlic also have antibacterial, antiviral and antifungal properties.
Garlic is an excellent source of vitamins and minerals that are crucial for good health. Cloves are one of the richest sources of: potassium, iron, calcium, magnesium, manganese, zinc and selenium.
