Creamy Chicken Stroganoff is a quick and easy dinner, with delicious strips of chicken and sauteed mushrooms in a creamy sauce. This is one of my all-time favorite dinners. It's quick and easy to make, and just so versatile. You can have it as a weekday dinner, but it is also impressive enough to serve for a dinner party.

The meal is very quick to cook, and the trick is to prepare your ingredients beforehand, so have everything ready and then it's simply a case of cooking it all in the steps below and your meal comes together right before your very eyes!

For this Creamy Chicken Stroganoff recipe, I have used chicken thigh meat. I truly believe that is the key to the great taste of this dish. Thigh meat is so much sweeter and juicier than breast meat and adds both texture and taste to a dish. You can buy thigh meat ready prepared, boneless and skinless, although I tend to prepare it myself and use the bones to make up some broth.

For the sauce, the creaminess is really delicious! I have not used any cream, but instead, I use low-fat plain yogurt. This, of course, reduces the calories, without any compromise of the creamy look and taste of the dish so you have a low-fat dinner and no guilt! The splash of white wine really makes a difference in flavor too, so be sure to add that!

So I hope you will really enjoy this recipe as much as I do. You can also use it for pork, beef, and seafood, such as shrimp. (just replace the chicken broth with vegetable or fish broth!)

After making this, I had a little left over so I decided to make some Mini Creamy Chicken Stroganoff Pot Pies. They're so delicious! The pastry is so lovely and these would be great for a party or freezing so you have some handy on a weeknight for dinner.

Turn the heat up high and add the chicken. Stir it all well so it cooks evenly. This should take only a few minutes if your chicken is thinly sliced.

4. Remove the chicken from the pan with a slotted spoon, keep the juices in there and then add butter.

5. When the butter has melted, add flour and cook, stirring constantly, until flour turns light brown, for about 2 minutes and it’s all combined.

6. Slowly stir in broth and add the white wine. Add brown sugar and bring to a gentle boil.

7. Reduce heat to medium and cook until sauce is reduced to about 1 cup, about 5 minutes. Stir in yogurt then add the lemon juice and return to simmer.

    1. Oh my goodness Judy!! It is a typo error, so thank you so much for pointing that out! Of course it should read chicken broth! I have corrected the recipe now. I do a very similar recipe for beef stroganoff and use the same sauce, however, I simply forgot to change that ingredient over to chicken!
      Thanks once again for keeping me on my toes!
