This is a recipe for Brazilian Stroganoff. This is another one of my wife’s quick and easy recipes.
My wife does not particularly enjoy cooking, but when she does it is always quick and easy, and normally pretty tasty. Serve this up with some boiled white rice and potato straws.
Exploring the Delights of Brazilian Chicken Stroganoff
Welcome to a culinary journey that will transport your taste buds to the vibrant streets of Brazil.
This recipe dives into the irresistible world of Brazilian Chicken Stroganoff. Bursting with rich creamy flavours and a unique twist on the classic Russian dish, this Brazilian rendition is a must-try. In this blog post, we’ll guide you through the tantalizing process of creating this mouthwatering dish.
Brazilian cuisine is a melting pot of diverse culinary traditions. The Brazilian Chicken Stroganoff is a prime example of how different cultures influence and shape the country’s gastronomy.
Drawing inspiration from the Russian Beef Stroganoff, Brazilian Chicken Stroganoff adds a tropical twist, with a creamy tomato sauce. It is a celebration of flavours that harmoniously blends international influences with Brazilian creativity.
You could also use beef if you prefer to make a Brazilian Beef Stroganoff, but that is just not how we do it in our household.
Key Ingredients in Brazilian Stroganoff
To create the tantalizing taste of Brazilian Chicken Stroganoff, several key ingredients come together to form a harmonious medley of flavours. Let’s explore some of the stars of this culinary dance:
Chicken: Tender boneless chicken breasts are the foundation of this dish. They provide a juicy and succulent base for the flavours to develop.
Tomato Passata: the tomato paste adds a rich, tangy flavour to the sauce, creating a vibrant and robust backdrop for the chicken.
Sweetcorn: the small pieces of corn add some extra colour and sweetness to the dish
Cream: the cream is the luscious element that brings all the flavours together, creating a velvety and indulgent sauce.
Potato Straws: as with Brazilian hotdogs, these potato sticks add the crunch and texture to this dish.
If you wish to add other ingredients to the recipe, like mushrooms or onions, then please feel free to do so. We leave them out as we have a rather fussy daughter that does not like either!
You may also wish to add a bit of a kick with some paprika or chilli. This would not be very Brazilian, but as ever it’s up to you.
Brazilian Chicken Stroganoff is traditionally served over white rice. But you can also pair it with pasta or mashed potatoes if you prefer. Garnish with fresh parsley and serve hot.
