  1. Prepare the Chicken: Cut the chicken into 1-inch pieces. Season generously with salt and pepper, then toss with 1/4 cup flour to coat.
  2. Brown the Chicken: In a skillet, heat 2 tablespoons of olive oil over medium-high. Cook the chicken in batches until golden brown, about 3 minutes per side. Remove and set aside.

Cook the Vegetables

  1. Sauté Onions and Mushrooms: In the same pan, melt butter, add onions and mushrooms, and cook until the mushrooms have released their liquid and are golden, about 6-8 minutes.

Make the Sauce

  1. Add Flavorings: Stir in the garlic, Worcestershire sauce, and dry mustard. Cook for 1 minute.
  2. Deglaze the Pan: Pour in the chicken broth, scraping up any browned bits from the pan's bottom.

Combine and Serve

  1. Return Chicken to Pan: Add the chicken back to the skillet, stirring occasionally, and cook for a few more minutes until the chicken is cooked through.
  2. Add Sour Cream: Reduce heat to low, stir in the sour cream, and season with salt and pepper to taste.
  3. Serve: Serve the stroganoff warm over egg noodles or mashed potatoes.
