Easy Chicken Stroganoff

Wednesday, January 20, 2010

I was kind of leery to try tonight's recipe. I have made other stroganoff dishes in the past and they always seemed to have several different herbs in them and they made the dish have a weird taste but the recipe sounded easy enoughso I thought that I would give this one a shot. Check back to the beginning of the week for this recipe: http://mealsforreal.blogspot.com/2010/01/weekly-meal-plan-1.html

Here's what I started with:



Easy Chicken Stroganoff Recipe:
2 Tablespoons butter
1 lb chicken breasts
2 cups mushrooms
1 medium onion, chopped
1 can Cream of Chicken soup
1/2 cup sour cream
4 cups egg noodles
Modifications:
The recipe actually calls for 2 cups of mushrooms but I used 2 cans of mushrooms.
I used 1/4 of a medium onion.
I used 2 large chicken breasts.
You could add peas.
You could make this with beef instead of chicken.
How I Did It:
#1 I seasoned the chicken with Paula Deen's Home Seasoning (that I actually made myself). It is 1 cup kosher salt, 1/4 cup pepper, 1/4 cup garlic powder.
#2 I cut the chicken into good bite-sized chunks.

#3 I preheated the oven for the garlic bread

#4 After browning the chicken in 1 Tablespoon of butter, I removed it and sat it aside. I then added the chopped onions and the canned mushrooms to the same pan the chicken had been cooking in. (I think the baby was crying so I forgot to take a picture of the chicken sizzling)

#5 While the onions and mushrooms were sizzling away, I cooked the egg noodles.



#6 Since the bread takes 9 minutes to cook, I popped it in the oven.



#7 The Cream of Chicken soup and the 1/2 cup of sour cream went in with the onions and mushrooms.



#8 Once it started bubbling, I put the chicken back in the pan.



#9 I decided to add a bag of some Steam Fresh broccoli.



#10 Drained the noodles and put them in a serving bowl . . .




#11 then added the chicken mixture.





I premade a garden salad and served it with the garlic bread.



Review:

On the other meals I used my son, Kanin, as the thumbs up/thumbs down guy. Well, today was just not the day for him to cooperate. I think I could have put McDonald's, Jimmy John's, Imo's and Green China (all his favorites) in front of him and he would have said "thumbs down". So, I just decided to do the review myself.
I absolutely LOVED this meal. I had to stop myself from eating more and more. It was SO good. I think 1 can of mushrooms would have been plenty. I loved the broccoli added to this recipe. It gave it a good texture and it was extra veggies that I was able to sneak in. I will most definitely use this recipe again.
