- ½ cup olive oil
- 7 Chicken Breasts (cut into strips across the grain) Approx. 2 lbs.
- 4 cups Broccoli cut up
- 2 cups Diced Carrots
- 1 cup Peas (fresh or frozen)
- Salt to taste
- 1/4 cup olive oil
- 1/2 Cup flour
- 3 cups chicken broth
- Wash vegetables. Peel and dice carrots. Cut broccoli into bite size pieces, peel and dice broccoli stalks and add to broccoli flowerets. Rinse Peas.
- Cut chicken into small bitesize pieces. When you can see which way the grain goes, cut across grain.
- Heat ¼ cup olive oil in pan and sauté chicken until “just cooked’, approx. 5 minutes. Season with approximately 1 tsp salt. A little pink in the middle is okay.
- Remove chicken and liquid into clean bowl and set aside.
- In same pan, heat another 1/8- ¼ cup oil and sauté carrots for 2 to 3 minutes. Add broccoli and sauté an additional 2 to 3 minutes. Add peas, 1 tsp. salt and a cup of water. Cover pan for 3 to 4 minutes to let peas steam a little. Remove veggies and any liquid to bowl and set aside while making gravy.
- For gravy, in the same pan, heat another 1/4 cup oil. Add 1/2 cup flour and sauté for 3 to 5 minutes, stirring continually until flour is a bit toasted. If too dry, add a tad more oil so it can sizzle a little.
- Remove from heat and add 3 cups of chicken broth while continuously stirring until all clumps have dissolved and gravy has thickened and is smooth.
- Add all the contents from the chicken and vegetable bowls to the pain with the gravy and stir.
- Heat through, taste and adjust flavor of Stroganoff to desired taste by adding a little salt if that is necessary.
- Serve Stroganoff over mashed potatoes or noodles
- This recipe came together many years ago when a friend of mine needed a dinner idea that was easy and hassle free … meaning, she didn’t want to pack her little ones in the car and drive to a store for anything. After she listed a few items she had in her refrigerator, I came up with this idea. It has since become one of Josiah’s favorites.
- Over the years, we have come to know this meal as Chicken Stroganoff. It is kind of like a chicken pot pie, without the pie…
