Creamy Chicken Stroganoff


A classic Russian recipe, this Creamy Chicken Stroganoff has undergone a costume makeover; instead of beef, tender chicken in a creamy mushroom sauce. It is pouring outside and we all look for some comfort food, so I served this Creamy Chicken Stroganoff which was polished off within minutes.

Strips of tender seasoned chicken pieces sautéed with earthy mushrooms and garlic, cooked with chicken stock and smothered in a  healthy dose of fresh cream. Sounds, creamy, dreamy and absolutely delectable, doesn’t it?
