chicken stroganoff

A couple of weeks ago a friend organized a recipe swap... each person brought prepared main dish with the recipe. Then we got to sample all of the recipes. It was a lot of fun, and I got some new ideas for dinner. This was one of my favorites, and my family liked it too!

Chicken Stroganoff:

4 bacon strips
1 lb. chicken, cut up
1 med. onion
2 cloves garlic
1 pkg fresh mushrooms (the original recipe calls for 2 cans of mushrooms drained, but I detest canned mushrooms.)
1 1/2 cups chicken broth
1/2 tsp salt
1/8 tsp paprika
pepper to taste
1 cup sour cream
2 T flour

In a skillet cook bacon until crisp. Remove to paper towels and drain some of the drippings, reserving 2 T, set bacon aside. When cool enough to touch, break up into small pieces. Cook the chicken, onion, garlic, and mushrooms until chicken is no longer pink. Add the broth, salt paprika, pepper and bacon back in. Cover and simmer for 10 minutes. Combine flour and sour cream until smooth; add to the skillet. Bring to boil, cook and stir for 1 minute or until thickened. Serve over egg noodles or rice, whichever is your family's preference.

I guess if you're not a mushroom fan, you could leave those out, but it just can't be as good as the original without those! Let me know if you make it, and what you think. Enjoy!
