About the Creamy Mushroom Chicken

For this Chicken Stroganoff Recipe, you only need a few ingredients. The Creamy Mushroom Chicken with rice is super easy and quick to prepare and still tastes like it’s straight from grandma’s kitchen.

I use chicken breast, cut into strips. After a quick sear, the chicken is removed from the pan. Then the mushrooms and chopped onion are sautéed together.

Next comes the creamy sauce, made by stirring together flour, broth, half-and-half, and spices to create a roux. Add the chicken back into the pan and let it cook in the sauce for a bit. Serve with some lemon juice, rice, and parsley.

Ingredients for Creamy Mushroom Chicken with Rice:

In addition to the main ingredient, puff pastry, you only need a few other ingredients, which can also vary according to taste.
  • Chicken breast
  • Mushrooms
  • Oil
  • Red onion
  • Garlic
  • Flour
  • Cooking cream (half-and-half)
  • Vegetable broth
  • Lemon juice
  • Salt and ground black pepper
  • Parsley
  • Rice

For the rice, I prefer to use Basmati rice. It only takes 10 minutes to cook and it’s my personal favorite. Basmati rice is also available in convenient cooking bags.

Although organic meat is very expensive, I prefer to use organic chicken breast and cut it into strips myself.

When it comes to mushrooms, make sure to use fresh ones. The same goes for garlic: A fresh bulb tastes much better than dried garlic powder.

You can use cooking cream with 15% fat or, for example, half-and-half. Heavy cream is not necessary for this recipe, as the cream sauce becomes really creamy on its own.
