Each bite of chicken stroganoff is packed with flavor and texture. You’ll definitely want seconds!
Cream-based recipes don’t freeze well and become grainy when thawed and reheated. For best taste and texture, store leftover stroganoff in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 3 days.
Chicken Stroganoff Variations
Chicken: This is a great way to use up leftover chicken. Skip steps 2 and 3, add shredded or cubed cooked chicken in step 7, and simmer until warmed through.
Mushrooms: Instead of mushrooms, use an equal amount of chopped zucchini or squash.
Sour Cream: For a lighter alternative, use plain Greek yogurt in place of sour cream.
Noodles: While traditional stroganoff is served with egg noodles, feel free to use your favorite kind of noodles (or even mashed potatoes) for this chicken stroganoff.
