Chicken Stroganoff


An absolute favourite in our house. My nephew adores and it when he comes over he says “Chikki (short for Chikamma or maasi) make stroganoff for me naa.”


Stroganoff originates from Russia but you can find it peeking out in many a country’s cuisine. Traditionally made with beef, but I have made it using chicken.


Its an easy dish that is rich with cream and cheese and u can eat it with rice or some bread. Super easy to make and not forgot loved by all especially the little brats
