Chicken "Stroganoff"

Were I to make this again for Emily I would leave out the onions, the mushrooms, and the fake sour cream, HOWEVER... in my opinion this recipe is better! I guess it's designed more for adult tastes. I can't blame her, when I was a kid I couldn't stand onions or mushrooms either. So last night, after I took this picture, we spent 5 minutes picking out all the onions and mushrooms before she would eat it. As for the fake sour cream, I didn't even put it in. I just know that it would have had more of a richness if I had. I guess what I'm saying is that here we have two recipes in one. For a basic chicken in cream sauce (which was still delicious, don't get me wrong) leave out the onions, mushrooms, and fake sour cream...For a dish that is more like a true stroganoff follow the recipe below.

3 or 4 Boneless skinless chicken breasts cut into 1/2" strips
8 oz Sliced crimini mushrooms
1 Yellow onion cut into strips
1/4 c Dairy free margarine
3 T Sweet rice flour
2 c Chicken broth, warmed
2 t Chicken bullion safe for your allergies (1 cube of Harvest Sun brand)
1/4 c Dairy free sour cream alternative (like Tofutti
Cooked gluten free noodles

Melt about 1 tablespoon of margarine in a large frying pan over medium-high heat . Sautee chicken strips for about 10 minutes or until chicken is cooked through. Add mushrooms and onions and cook while stirring for another 5 minutes. Set aside.

Dissolve bullion in warm chicken broth.

Melt 1/4 cup of margarine in a heavy saucepan over medium heat. Sprinkle in sweet rice flour and whisk until creamy. Slowly pour in about 1/4 of the broth while whisking until fully blended. Continue adding about 1/4 of the broth at a time, whisking until creamy after each addition. boil and whisk for about 1 minute. Mix in the sour cream substitute.

Add the chicken, mushroom, and onion mixture to the sauce. Stir well and simmer until heated through, about 5 to 10 minutes.

Serve over noodles (or rice) if desired. I was trying to go for an egg noodle effect, so I used broken up Tinyada lasagne noodles.
