How to make Chicken Stroganoff

  1. Slice the chicken into strips and keep it aside. Slice the leek and mushrooms (if using).
  2. In a saucepan heat the butter and add the onions and leek to it. Cook until soft. Turn the heat on high and add the mushrooms if using.
  3. Add the chicken immediately. Cook for three to four minutes or until the meat starts changing colour. Turn down the heat.
  4. Add the flour to this and stir fry for two minutes and then add the white wine. Add all the seasonings - mustard, paprika, salt and pepper and stir well.
  5. Add the sour cream to this mix along with the chicken stock or water. Stir till everything mixes as well. Simmer for 10 to 15 minutes.
  6. Once the chicken is cooked through add all the dill. Mix well and turn off the gas. Add the nutmeg and parsley to it.
  7. Adjust for seasoning. Squeeze in some lemon and serve with mashed potatoes or buttered rice

My Tip:

If you don't have sour cream add 1/ 2 cup of low fat cream and 1/4 cup of yogurt to the stroganoff
