Just mentioning the word "stroganoff" is enough to make anybody's mouth water! Something about the combination of tender meat, earthy mushrooms and a rich, flavorful gravy that screams comfort food. Add it on top of a bed of perfectly al dente egg noodles, and you've got a hearty, satisfying meal that will bring you back to the old country.
Although typically served as the classic beef stroganoff, the recipe below is made with boneless, skinless chicken thighs for a leaner, healthier take on this comfort standard. The dark meat chicken is both juicier and more flavorful than its white meat counterpart, while also saving on the calories of a typical beef stroganoff. This is by no means a "diet dish," however, as the full-fat sour cream helps create a luscious, silky gravy that you'll want to sop up with a thick slice of crusty, dark bread. It's perfect for winter but delicious all year.
