Recipe Ingredients

  • Garlic: Brings a punchy, aromatic note to the dish that complements the chicken and vegetables.

  • Chicken Broth: Provides the liquid base for the stroganoff, enhancing the flavors of the chicken and vegetables.
  • Heavy Cream: Gives the stroganoff its characteristic rich and creamy consistency.

  • Sour Cream: Adds tanginess to the dish, balancing out the richness of the cream.

Set Instant Pot to saute mode. Place olive oil, diced onion, garlic, carrots, and celery into the pot. Saute for 3 minutes. Turn off saute mode.

Step Two: Add Chicken And Chicken Broth

Add the diced chicken to your Inner Pot. Pour chicken broth over the chicken mixture. Do not fill all the way when you add chicken broth. You just want to cover the vegetables and chicken.

Step Five: Cook Egg Noodles

Cook your pasta on the stove as directed. I find it’s best to cook the egg noodles separately as this will ensure the pasta doesn’t overcook in the Instant Pot, given the chicken needs a longer cooking time than pasta. There is nothing worse than mushy pasta.

Step Six: Make Sauce

In a small bowl, whisk together heavy cream, and cornstarch. Add to Instant Pot and stir into the chicken broth, chicken and vegetable mixture.

Step Seven: Saute Stroganoff Sauce

Set saute mode back on and let the recipe come to a roaring boil for 5 minutes then turn off and allow it to cool. The cooling process will help the heavy cream and corn starch thicken.

Step Eight: Add Egg Noodles

Drain your egg noodles and add the pasta to your stroganoff mixture. Add 1/2 cup of sour cream and combine until creamy.

Step Nine: Garnish & Serve

Ladle your Instant Pot Chicken Stroganoff into bowls. Garnish the dish with parmesan cheese, fresh rosemary or fresh parsley and cracked black pepper. Serve immediately.
