I was going to do this tomorrow, but I'll probably forget, so tonight it is.
I should clarify that I have never had stroganoff in my life, so don't know what the sauce is supposed to be like. I did think it should have been more creamy than it was, but I could be wrong.
The sauce was a little thin, a little runny, the chicken was a little dry. I expected the dryness, because chicken breast is often dry when cooked in casseroles and this is similar.
The taste? Well, hints of chicken flavour, the mushrooms were tasty, (I used pre-sliced Swiss browns), overall though a bit bland.
Is this how stroganoff is supposed to taste? a bit bland?
I'm wondering if adjusting the amounts of ingredients to suit my smaller pot contributed to the difference. Certainly I could have cooked it for a lesser time and maybe the chicken wouldn't have been dry.
Less water and more sour cream might result in a creamier sauce; extra chicken stock would add more flavour. Probably a regular chicken stock, not the salt reduced one I used.
Next time, I'll try chicken thighs instead of chicken breast.
What I need now, is more slow cooker recipes suitable for a small, one and a half litre pot.
