One of my favorite dishes of all time is Beef Stroganoff. The recipe says it serves 6 but when I make it, it only serves 3. I seriously cannot help myself. I decided to try a recipe for Chicken Stroganoff. While it’s not as fabulous as the real thing, it comes pretty darn close! And I have a feeling that this recipe won’t come out to as many servings as it states either. ;)
Chicken Stroganoff (Serves 4)
Recipe slightly adapted from Cooking Light Magazine January/February 2017
2 Tbsp olive oil, divided
1 lb. chicken breast tenders, cut into 1 inch pieces
1 tsp. kosher salt, divided
3/4 tsp. black pepper, divided
2 1/2 cups unsalted chicken stock, divided
1 Tbsp all-purpose flour
1 (8 oz.) package pre sliced cremini mushrooms
1/2 cup diced onion
1 Tbsp minced garlic
2 tsp. chopped fresh thyme
1/2 cup dry white wine
6 oz. uncooked wide egg noodles
1/2 cup light sour cream
1 Tbsp chopped fresh flat-leaf parsley
1. Heat 1 Tbsp oil in a large Dutch oven over medium-high. Sprinkle chicken with 1/4 tsp. salt and 1/4 tsp. pepper. Add chicken to pan; cook 6 minutes or until done, turning once. Remove from pan.
2. Combine 1 Tbsp stock and flour in a small bowl. Add remaining 1 Tbsp oil to pan over medium-high. Add mushrooms and onions; cook 8 minutes. Stir in garlic and thyme; cook 1 minute. Add wine; cook 2 minutes or until reduced by half, scraping pan to loosen browned bits.
3. Stir in remaining 2 cups and 7 Tbsp stock; bring to a simmer. Add noodles; cook, uncovered 8 minutes or until done. Stir in flour mixture; cook 1 minute.
4. Remove pan from heat; stir in chicken, remaining 3/4 tsp. salt, remaining 1/2 tsp. pepper, and sour cream. Sprinkle with parsley.
Last Thursday I reheated leftovers from Gor Gai for dinner:
I took the kids to school, then met my trainer at the gym.
I had lunch with some friends at True Food Kitchen. We all shared Edamame Dumplings (dashi, white truffle oil, Asian herbs) to start:
These were damn good.
I ordered the Teriyaki Quinoa Bowl with Salmon (broccoli, heirloom carrot, bok chop, mushrooms, brown rice, avocado, toasted sesame):
For dinner we went to our club. My husband and I shared a pizza and a salad.
Lunch was a tuna sandwich and a salad:
That evening we went to a Bar Mitzvah party for our friend’s son at Draft Republic. They had all kinds of yummy passed appetizers going around. I probably tried them all with my favorite being little shot glasses of tomato soup with grilled cheese sandwiches.
My friend Yamia and I being silly in the photo booth:
The kids wanted some late night Taco Bell. I couldn’t help myself. Lol.
Taco Bell is probably my favorite fast food.
We didn’t have a ton of plans which was awesome. Lunch was delivered from Ototo Sushi.
That night we went over to Joe and Alicia’s to watch football and have Phil’s BBQ for dinner.
Epic day of food.
Dropped off the kids at school and met with my trainer at the gym.
I took one of my dogs to the vet for vaccines, then home for lunch. Soup sounded good so I heated up some tomato soup I had in the pantry.
Late afternoon snack:
I thought this flavor was interesting. Not a favorite though. I’ll stick with the lemon one.
Dinner was a major fail. I got an Instant Pot for Christmas and finally decided to give it a whirl. I decided to try this recipe for Instant Pot Turkey-Stuffed Peppers. I usually have success with both Cooking Light and Skinnytaste but not this time. :(
It wasn’t the Instant Pot’s fault. They were cooked fine…they just tasted so bland and the filling really looked like canned dog food. Nasty. It got thrown away. I haven’t given up. I will try the Instant Pot again soon!
I dropped off the kids at school, then hit the gym for a run on the treadmill.
I ran errands and got my nails done. Lunch was Luna Grill’s Greek Salad:
After school, I took my son to Bar Mitzvah tutoring, then came home to whip up the delightful Chicken Stroganoff.
Yesterday was not my average day. I woke up at 3:15AM and had a bit of a different breakfast before heading out the door before 5AM with my husband.
He and three other friends were playing in the Farmer’s Insurance Pro-Am Golf Tournament at Torrey Pines.
With Phil Mickelson!
They teed off at 6:40AM. Before that, we grabbed some breakfast burritos on the course.
Phil could not have been nicer. He was so engaging. I enjoyed walking the 18 holes with everyone! The day ended with my husband making an Eagle putt on hole 18! Insane.
I was starving afterwards. I ended up walking over 24,000 steps yesterday. I stopped at Jersey Mikes before getting the kids from school.
I went to my son’s basketball game, then an event at the school.
Dinner was at Davanti. I wasn’t super hungry so I just ordered the Antipasto Salad (baby iceberg, salumi, pepperoncini, provolone, red wine vinaigrette):
By the time I got in bed last night, I was wiped out.
Breakfast this morning:
I took the kids to school, then dropped my car off for service.
I had lunch with a friend at Nick and G’s. I had never been so I was excited to try it. I ordered the Chopped Antipasto Salad (salami, capicola, pepperoncini, tomato, red onion and Nick and G’s vinaigrette):
I must have a thing for Antipasto salad going on! Lol! The one was equally as good as the other! Overall I liked the restaurant and would go back. There were several things on the menu that looked good!
Have a great evening!
