Chicken Stroganoff FAQs

Can I freeze stroganoff?

It’s not advisable to freeze this recipe due to the diary. Your sauce could separate and curdle. If you would like to make it ahead of time, we recommend cooking the noodles and chicken separately then adding them together with your sauce (and sour cream) before serving.

How to store and reheat Chicken Stroganoff

On the off chance that you have any leftover stroganoff, you can store it in the fridge for up to three days. To reheat, warm on low heat either on your stove-top or back in the microwave until heated through before serving again! You’ll want to make sure you stir the sauce regularly to avoid breaking.

What kind of mushrooms can I use?

You can use any type of mushroom for this dish! We prefer baby bella or button, but even shiitakes would be delicious.

Does this recipe work for beef as well as chicken?

Absolutely! If you prefer to use beef in your stroganoff, feel free to use that instead of the chicken. The only modification you need to make (besides subbing the beef for the chicken, of course) is to switch out the chicken broth for beef broth. If you don’t have any beef broth on hand, you can use the chicken, but it won’t have as strong as a beefy flavor.

Can I make this recipe gluten-free?

You sure can! Switch out the flour with your choice of a gluten-free flour blend. If you are looking for a gluten-free alternative to regular noodles or rice, try using riced cauliflower!

 I don’t have sour cream on hand – what can I substitute?

You could always use plain Greek yogurt instead of sour cream if need to. Or you could also sub in some heavy whipping cream. You could also use cream cheese instead of sour cream.

How do I make the sauce thicker?

You can add in some cornstarch to thicken up your stroganoff if needed! Just mix together a tablespoon or two with water until smooth, and then stir into the creamy chicken stroganoff mixture that is bubbling on your stove-top. It’s that simple!

Can This recipe be dairy-free/vegetarian?

Yes and Yes! You can sub out the diary with your favorite substitute and even switch out the sour cream for a dairy-free yogurt. To make this dish vegetarian, you can switch the chicken out with portabella mushrooms, tofu, or eggplant.
