Creamy Slow Cooker Chicken Stroganoff

This delicious slow cooker chicken stroganoff is the perfect meal for feeding a crowd. It’s super easy to make, so it’s ideal for anyone with a busy lifestyle.

Slow Cooker Chicken Stroganoff

I recommend having this with some freshly cooked pasta. You can cook the pasta in the slow cooker or separately. I recommend cooking it separately to avoid ending up with gluggy sauce and pasta. If you’re not feeling like pasta, then there are a ton of other options such as having it by itself, with mash potato, with noodle, vegetable pasta and so much more.

Pasta always goes great with a side of crunchy garlic bread or even just some freshly baked regular bread. If you want something healthier, then a good side salad is always a good choice.

Chicken doesn’t cope with long amounts of time in the slow cooker as well as beef. If you leave it cooking for too long, it’s possible that the chicken will become overcooked and you will end up with dry, rubbery chicken.

It may look like a lot of ingredients for this recipe but it is worth it, and you get a much nicer dish without the need for canned soups. You will need to thicken it up at the end of cooking since it will be a bit on the runny side, this easily achieved using a cornstarch and water mix.

Cooking Tips

  • Chicken breast can be used instead of thigh. Both will work just fine it just comes down to personal preference.
  • If you’re going to cook the pasta in the slow cooker then do not add the cornstarch as the starch from the pasta will thicken the sauce up more than enough.
  • You’re able to add some green vegetables if you wish to do so, just make sure this is done towards the end of cooking since most greens will only need 15-30 minutes of cooking.

    Is it possible to substitute garlic powder or dried garlic?

    1. Gus on

      Yes, it’s possible however I can’t exactly say how much it will impact flavor. You might find that you need less (Only 1 tsp. rather than 2 tsp.)

    2. Michelle Brooke on

      Can you freeze this please?

    3. Gus on

      You can try freezing it but I find meals with a heavy amount of cream will not reheat nicely.
