This flavorful slow cooker chicken stroganoff recipe is easy to make in the afternoon, so you don’t have to rush to cook at the end of the day.
This is not your typical slow cooker recipe since it’s ready in about three hours and doesn’t need to cook all day. That makes it perfect for starting when you have time in the afternoon before the evening gets crazy with homework and soccer practice and all the other activities that make evenings hectic. (I’m lucky that so far my boys haven’t asked to start sports, but I fear it could be coming any day now!)
This recipe is a bit of a blank slate. You could add mushrooms with the chicken or peas with the cream cheese (so they don’t get overcooked). Since this is one of the few dinners both of my kids will eat, I keep it simple and serve vegetables on the side so my boys don’t start finding ingredients to complain about. I don’t like to mess with success when it comes to finding a recipe that they love!
If you want to try making your own Italian dressing mix instead of using the packaged version, I think this is the best recipe. I’ve done that the last couple times with excellent results, plus it’s way cheaper than buying the packets! I still haven’t tried a homemade cream of chicken soup recipe in place of the canned version. If you have a recipe you like, please share it in the comments!Print
- 4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts cut into bite-sized pieces
- 2 tablespoon butter
- 0.7 ounce packet Zesty Italian salad dressing mix packet (or 3 tablespoons of homemade mix)
- 4 ounces reduced-fat cream cheese
- 10.75 ounces canned reduced-sodium cream of chicken soup
- 1/4 cup sour cream (reduced fat or regular is fine)
- 12–16 ounces whole wheat egg noodles
Place chicken, butter, and salad dressing mix into slow cooker. Cook on low 2-3 hours, until chicken is cooked through. Stir occasionally during cooking process if you are around.
Stir in soup and cream cheese. Cook on high for 30 minutes. Meanwhile, cook egg noodles according to package directions. Drain and set aside.
Add sour cream and stir stroganoff until evenly combined. Serve over warm egg noodles, or you can stir the noodles into the chicken mixture and serve it that way.
