If you’re looking for a quick and easy toss together dinner that tastes like you slaved over it, you might wanna check out this easy and fast One Skillet Chicken Stroganoff. It’s creamy comfort food at it’s best. Tender chunks of chicken, golden brown mushrooms and noodles enveloped in a silky, creamy sauce, it’s a play off of the traditional Beef Stroganoff. And it’s all done in one skillet! Ya gotta love that.
I’m not sure what made me think of this old-fashioned recipe…I’d call it comfort food. I don’t think my Mom made it but it was always around at someone’s house. I made it way back when I was a young Mom. I always called it Ground Beef Noodle Bake. I suspect it has roots in the German Kugel but became “casseroled up” in the U.S., much the way our “American Goulash” did.
I’ve been up and down my family tree and like many Americans, I’m a crazy mix up of genes, but one thing I don’t have is a drop of Swedish blood. I do, however, live in Minnesota, you betcha, home of a large Swedish population and home of the American Swedish Institute. And I can attest that Swedish Meatballs are very popular in the Twin Cities, especially during the Holidays.
For years, my daughter’s been describing this casserole to me, a family favorite of her in-laws. For years, in my head, I’ve been thinking: Do we NEED another Tuna Casserole? The “We” being not just our family, but the whole collective of people in general; the world as a whole! One taste of this Cheesy Tuna Noodle Casserole with Green Olives was all it took to change my mind.
Can we talk Tuna Noodle Casserole? Why? Because my blog tells me people are looking for it. Particularly Meta Givens Tuna Noodle Casserole Supreme.
