skinless, boneless chicken breast halves - cut into bite size pieces
salt and pepper to taste
1 (4.5 ounce) can
mushrooms, with liquid
I loved the results that I got - but I did substantial tinkering! I used fresh mushrooms instead of canned, and instead of mushroom-juice and chicken boullion cubes, I used two cups of strong, homemade chicken stock, and thickened it just a touch. I also used sharp paprika instead of mild, and increased it to about three tablespoons. I used eight boneless chicken thighs. Plenty of gravy for mixing with the rice. Rave reviews. I definitely will make this again!
Very bland. Not enough flavor at all. Not enough sauce either. Will not make again.
I was raised on this chicken recipee, although slightly different...try adding a sweet juicy tomato and some chunks of green pepper for even more flavour, omit the sour cream and cook till sauce is reduced and thickened...and only use Hungarian paprika, makes a world of difference. This dish can also be made with stewing beef or pork. YUM!!!
With the changes I made, it will definitely be repeated over and over. I seasoned the chicken thighs (all I had) with garlic powder, adobo and pepper. I also added about 1/2 cup of white wine and used fresh mushrooms. Other than these changes I followed the recipe exactly and it was delicious! Thanks for sharing!!
This was good served over spaetzle. I used half hot and sweet paprika and added some white cooking wine. I think it could have used a little more spicing up, I had to keep it mild for my 18 month old daughter.
Very good variation on chicken stroganoff.
This turned out pretty good, but I too made changes. I didn't have any paprika so I substituted cumin and coriander. (We love Mexican). I also added about a cup of water along with the mushroom liquid to make more gravy. Still I wished I had used more water. Still wasn't enough gravy. Will try again.
Great recipe, great taste. I used fresh mushrooms and added about 1/4 cup of water as the liquid. Instead of spooning over rice in individual servings, I just mixed the entire dish with a cup of cooked white rice in a big bowl. It was delicious...fed three grown men...they just kept eating and eating....we all really enjoyed this one. Thank you!
