For the buttered noodles:

  • 16 ounces egg noodles
  • 1/4 cup butter (1/2 stick) or less to taste
  • Salt and freshly ground black pepper

For the stroganoff:

  • 3 tablespoons butter divided
  • 2 medium onion chopped
  • 8 ounces white button mushrooms or cremini mushrooms, sliced
  • 1 1/4 pounds boneless skinless chicken thighs cut into chunks
  • 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon paprika
  • Salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • 1 cup chicken broth
  • 1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
  • 1/2 cup sour cream plus more for topping
  • fresh parsley minced, for garnish


To make the buttered noodles:

  • In a large pot over high heat, bring 4 quarts water and 1 tablespoon salt to boil. Add noodles and cook until tender, about 8 to 10 minutes. Drain well.
  • Off heat, add butter to pot. Add drained noodles and toss until butter is melted and noodles are evenly coated. Season to taste with salt and pepper (I like 1/4 teaspoon salt and 1/8 teaspoon pepper).

To make the stroganoff:

  • In a large skillet over medium-high heat, melt 2 tablespoons butter. Add the onion and cook until slightly softened, about 2 minutes. Stir in the mushrooms and cook until they begin to brown, about 2 minutes. 
  • Add the remaining 1 tablespoon of butter, chicken, flour, and paprika. Cook until the chicken begins to brown, about 3 minutes. Add the broth and Worcestershire sauce and bring to a simmer.
  • Cook until the sauce thickens, about 5 minutes. Stir in the sour cream and cook until the chicken reaches 165 degrees, about 2 minutes longer. Season to taste with salt and pepper (I like 1 teaspoon salt and 1/2 teaspoon pepper).
  • To serve, place egg noodles in a bowl or on a plate. Top with the chicken mixture and a dollop of sour cream if desired. Garnish with parsley.
