CHICKEN STROGANOFF

Ingredients

  • 2 tbsp all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 tsp paprika
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1/4 tsp freshly ground pepper
  • 1 lb (0.5 kg) chicken breast fillets
  • 2 tbsp salted butter
  • 2 cups quartered fresh mushrooms
  • 1 cup chopped onion
  • 1 can (10 oz / 284 mL) chicken broth
  • 2 tbsp Dijon mustard
  • 1/2 cup light sour cream
  • 2 tbsp chopped fresh parsley
  • Hot cooked noodles*

Directions

  1. Combine flour, paprika, salt and pepper in a plastic bag. Add chicken to flour mixture and toss to coat.
  2. Melt butter in a large frypan over medium heat. Add chicken and cook, turning once, until chicken is golden brown and cooked through, about 5 - 6 minutes per side.
  3. Transfer chicken to a plate. Add mushrooms and onion to frypan; sauté until mushrooms are light golden and onion is tender.
  4. Stir in broth and mustard. Bring to a boil, scraping to loosen browned bits.
  5. Return chicken and any accumulated juices to frypan. Reduce heat and simmer, uncovered, stirring occasionally, until mixture is slightly thickened, about 5 minutes.
  6. Stir in sour cream. Cook, stirring, just until heated through, about 1 minute. Do not boil.
  7. Sprinkle with parsley. Serve over noodles.
