There’s nothing better than a creamy chicken and noodles dish. This hearty Chicken Stroganoff recipe delivers so much flavor and is always a big hit at dinner time. I totally get why everyone loves Chicken Stroganoff, juicy chicken pieces smothered in a tasty and creamy mushroom sauce, served over tender egg noodles is absolutely an amazing meal!

I always have boneless skinless chicken breasts in my freezer, so having simple and tasty chicken breast recipes handy are a must for me. Boneless chicken breasts cook fairly quickly and chicken dinners are always welcome at my house. This classic Chicken a la King is one of our favorites!
To make this Stroganoff recipe I use simple and fresh ingredients (no can of mushroom soup to make the sauce), just some chopped onions, garlic and mushrooms. Although I used white mushrooms to make this dish, you can use cremini or portobello mushrooms as well.
How To Make Chicken Stroganoff
- Season the chicken pieces with salt, pepper, dried thyme, paprika and garlic powder.
- In a large skillet saute the chicken. Remove it from the skillet (the chicken may not be cooked through, don’t worry, it will finish cooking in the sauce).
- In the same skillet, melt some butter. Saute the onions, garlic and mushrooms. Add the remaining butter and flour and cook for a minute.
- Pour the wine and cook for 2 minutes. Scrape the bottom of the skillet with a wooden spoon to get all the brown bits that are stuck at the bottom.
- Stir in the broth, mustard and Worcestershire sauce. Return the chicken to the skillet and simmer.
- At this point, you can cook the egg noodles.
- Add the sour cream to the sauce and season to taste with salt and pepper.
- Use any white wine you would drink. Chardonnay and Pinot Grigio and some good options. If possible, do not use any wine labeled “cooking wine:
- You can use fresh thyme instead of dried thyme for this recipe. Instead of adding it to the chicken, add it to the (right after adding the broth).
