Chicken Stroganoff – a creamy, tangy sauce loaded with chicken, bacon, and mushrooms and spooned over pasta. Delicious!
I got this chicken stroganoff recipe from my mom. She made it for dinner one night while we were visiting a couple months ago and my entire family loved it, so I wrote down the recipe before I left.
The first time I made it, I kept thinking something was missing, that it wasn’t quite as good as my mom’s. As I typed up the recipe, I realized what it was.
I accidentally left out the mushrooms. Duh! We’re not huge mushroom fans around here, but I really think they add to this recipe.
This is a quick and easy meal that is perfect for hectic evenings. If you are really pressed for time, you can use the precooked bacon bits and just cook the chicken in olive oil. It’s still mighty tasty.
