Chicken Stroganoff

Yield

Serves 4 (serving size: about 1 1/2 cups)

Stroganoff is the definition of absolute comfort: If it could restore its Russian creators 200 years ago, it will restore you on any winter weeknight. We’ve swapped traditional beef for chicken and added earthy cremini mushrooms to our one-pan version. Cooking the egg noodles in the same pan allows the pasta to absorb that rich liquid and release starch to thicken the sauce. Substitute boneless, skinless chicken breast for the tenders if you like. Serve with simply wilted kale dressed with a little lemon juice, or a beet salad dressed with a little horseradish cream (another favorite Russian combo).

Ingredients

  • 2 tablespoons olive oil, divided
  • 1 pound chicken breast tenders, cut into 1-in. pieces
  • 1 teaspoon kosher salt, divided
  • 3/4 teaspoon black pepper, divided
  • 2 1/2 cups unsalted chicken stock, divided
  • 1 tablespoon all-purpose flour
  • 1 (8-oz.) pkg. presliced cremini mushrooms
  • 1 tablespoon minced garlic
  • 2 teaspoons chopped fresh thyme
  • 1/2 cup dry white wine
  • 6 ounces uncooked wide egg noodles
  • 1/2 cup light sour cream
  • 1 tablespoon chopped fresh flat-leaf parsley
