This recipe is a twist on the historical Stroganoff dish named after the Russian royal Count Pavel Aleksandrovich Stroganoff.

The traditional version with ground beef, onions, and cream of mushroom soup become a famous dish worldwide and has many variations.

In this version, we are using chicken and heavy cream, but If you are looking for a dairy free option you can use coconut milk instead keeping the same technique to add it only in the end of the cooking process. The reason for that is to avoid the cream from “breaking” and separating it from the other liquids in the recipe.

If you like to keep this more on the traditional side you can add mushrooms, sautéing it in the beginning and you can use beef instead of chicken.

If you decide to use beef I would recommend tri-tip or tenderloin as you need a cut that will keep its moisture.

The marinade recipe can be kept in the refrigerator for a couple of weeks and it is a very flavorful and quick way to cook meats and vegetables. You can also add herbs to it like thyme or parsley to add more layers to your food.

We like to add the fresh tomato slices and Parmesan cheese over it to elevate the dish and make it more interesting.
