So, this is a variation of traditional stroganoff which is done in beef, this one is using chicken and includes paprika and tomato paste too. But if you like beef better, use beef instead of chicken and you ahve your “Beef Stroganoff”. Another good thing about this recipe is that you can serve it with boiled rice, garlic rice or any type of rice or you can do the way I did serve over pasta or noodles.
Please your family and friends with this fancy dish prepared in less than hour and they’ll scrape their plates clean just like my family!
