1 tablespoon olive oil

  • 1 pound boneless, skinless chicken breasts, cut into bite-sized pieces
  • 1 medium onion, diced
  • 8 ounces white mushrooms, sliced
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 tablespoon dried thyme
  • 1/2 teaspoon paprika
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1/4 cup dry white wine (optional)
  • 1 cup beef broth
  • 1 cup heavy cream
  • 1 tablespoon Dijon mustard
  • 1 tablespoon soy sauce
  • 12 ounces egg noodles, cooked according to package directions
  • Chopped fresh parsley, for garnish (optional)

  • Directions:

    1. Heat the oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add the chicken and cook until golden brown on all sides, about 5-7 minutes. Remove from the pan and set aside.
    2. Add the onion and mushrooms to the pan. Sauté until the onion is softened and the mushrooms are starting to release their juices, about 5 minutes.
    3. Stir in the garlic, thyme, paprika, and black pepper. Cook for an additional minute, allowing the spices to become fragrant.
    4. Deglaze the pan with white wine (if using) by scraping up any browned bits from the bottom of the pan. Let the wine simmer for a minute or two, then add the beef broth.
    5. Bring the broth to a boil, then reduce heat to low. Stir in the heavy cream, Dijon mustard, and soy sauce. Let the sauce simmer for 5 minutes, or until slightly thickened.
    6. Return the chicken to the pan and stir to coat in the sauce. Heat through for another 2-3 minutes, or until the chicken is cooked through.
    7. Serve the stroganoff over cooked egg noodles. Garnish with chopped fresh parsley, if desired.
