Tutorwood Cooks – Creamy Chicken and Bacon Stroganoff


Today’s feature is another family favourite and, it also falls into the quick and easy after-work category. With plump juicy chicken pieces, the smoky flavour of the bacon and plenty of mushrooms and beans, the tartness of the sour cream and lemon juice this dish, to me, is one of the best comfort food dishes ever. This dish also works exceptionally well with either beef strips, beef mince, pork, pork mince or even chicken mince.

The Raw Ingredients

Tonight we’ll be having the dish with spiral pasta, but it works equally well over rice or the Glorious mashed potatoes, I featured earlier this week. Another great idea is to make the dish without adding the chicken or beans and use it as a sauce over a beautiful piece of steak.
