Stroganoff is one of our family’s all time favorite dishes – it is creamy, rich, bursting with garlic flavors – and has a meaty kick from mushrooms.

You just can’t get more comforting than a hot, rich, and delicious plate full of stroganoff over noodles, rice, and even spaghetti squash or zoodles – it’s the perfect dinner for all sorts of diets and can easily work into a keto or low carb diet, too!

This stroganoff recipe takes a classic and flips it on it’s head with delicious pan fried chicken and mushrooms, tons of creamy flavor, and plenty of garlic – for a dinner nobody can say no to!

Tips and Tricks to Perfect Creamy One Pot Chicken Stroganoff

Creamy chicken stroganoff is the perfect easy dinner because it is incredibly versatile, quick, and simple to prepare – so it’s perfect for a dinner party, busy weeknight, or comforting Sunday supper.

Chicken stroganoff is one of those dishes you can add or substitute ingredients easily – try it with your favorite vegetables, over different noodles or rice (and even over cauliflower rice or zoodles!) for a different dinner each time you make it!

  • Let the chicken broth cook down before adding cream cheese to prevent a too-liquid dish.
  • Don’t overcook your chicken – it will dry out and become tough and chewy.
  • This dinner is great over rice, pasta or with bread – but is also delicious over baked cauliflower rice, sautéed vegetables, or baked potatoes for a totally customize-able and diet friendly meal!
  • If planning this meal for meal prep (leftovers), make sure chicken is fully cooked, but do not over-reduce and let sauce thicken.
    • Refrigerate when sauce is still very runny, it will thicken when reheating.
    • Cooking more will make sauce thicken and dry out when reheating if overcooked.

To Make This One Pot Chicken Stroganoff You Need:

This easy stroganoff is one of my favorites because it doesn’t require a ton of extra fussy kitchen equipment – just a couple basic needs – for your meal to come together into a memorable feast your family will beg for over and over again!

    Tried this tonight and my husband and I absolutely loved it! I actually soak my mushrooms in marsala wine before slicing as that is what I do for my stuffed mushrooms. Guess it might be an extra carb but adds a slight lovely taste. this recipe was so delicious that I’m looking forward to making it again, for dinner guests.

  2. Michelle says:

    If I wanted to use minced garlic in place of diced garlic, how much would I use? I can’t wait to make this. My family is going to love it.

    1. Courtney ODell says:

      Michelle, I’d use around 2 tbsp. I like things REALLY garlicky, so if thats too much for you, I’d use 1 tbsp and see how you like it – honestly the garlic amount is really flexible depending on your preferences.

      1. Imelda Saavedra says:

        1/4 cup of garlic? Is that not too much? I’m a little scares of adding so much.

        Thanks,
        Imelda

      2. Courtney ODell says:

        Imelda,

        You can reduce the garlic if you’d like – I like a lot of garlic, but you can halve it!

      3. Imelda Saavedra says:

        Got it, thanks.
