Tips 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.
