This Chicken and Mushroom Stroganoff is Incredible!

Beef stroganoff has always been one of my very favorite meals since I was a little girl. My mom makes a killer one, and through sheer determination and grit, I have learned to make it pretty well too (with much thanks to my favorite recipe from Natasha’s Kitchen). Everybody’s got those favorite meals that you just have to try and try again until you find the right one that checks ALL the boxes. This is how I felt about finding the right beef stroganoff.

I don’t know how I missed the memo, but you can totally make chicken stroganoff that is just as delicious! And possibly even more easy, because we always seem to have some rotisserie chicken on hand, or like in today’s recipe, you can use chicken breasts and cook up the yummiest mushroom chicken stroganoff in the crockpot that just takes a couple minutes of preparation and it can cook all day for a busy weeknight meal.

This recipe is made for the crockpot, but I feel like it’s very adaptable for the stove top with ready to go ingredients like shredded rotisserie chicken, canned or pre-chopped mushrooms, etc. The sauce is so delicious in this slow cooker recipe, you will not want to miss this. I always make homemade cream of chicken soup, so I use that in this recipe and it just creates the most heavenly, rich sauce that doesn’t have any yucky preservatives or ingredients like the canned stuff. So feel free to make your own cream of chicken or cream of mushroom soup if you’ve got a homemade recipe you like.

For More Flavor: If you want a stronger flavor for this stroganoff recipe, you can totally add a splash of Worcestershire sauce (which I did), and it gives us a great depth of flavor.

Serve With: There are so many things you can serve this over including stroganoff-style egg noodles, white rice, brown rice, mashed potatoes, linguine, fettuccine, farfalle, and tagliatelle. My favorites are the traditional egg noodles or mashed potatoes. But you can even use hearts of palm noodles that are keto friendly, so this is also quite a keto friendly meal, which is very helpful in our family!
