Cooking with Laughlin – Brazilian Chicken Stroganoff

Can you tell that Brazil made quite the impression on us? We love Brazilians, their food and their country. This is another recipe that has stuck with us and we have made it probably 4 times already. We were first introduced to this magical meal when we arrived in Manaus. We went to the mall down the street from our hotel and saw that this meal was pretty cheap so we got it for dinner and then we got it again the next day for lunch. It’s that good! We also snuck in 2 beers to the mall with dinner, but that is neither here nor there.

1-2 cups rice
2 lbs chicken breasts
1 small chopped purple onion
1 large chopped tomato
1 can creme de milk
2 Tbs Worcestershire
2 Tbs ketchup
1 Tbs mustard
1 tsp paprika
1 tsp garlic powder
Salt and pepper to taste
Olive or Canola oil


Get the rice going first. Once its started, you can cut chicken into bite sized pieces and cover with paprika and garlic, then fry in hot oil. (Cold oil doesn’t work. Trust me on this!) Cook for about 5-6 minutes.




Next, toss in the onions and cook until translucent. Once the onions are cooked to your liking, pour in the Worcestershire, ketchup and mustard. Mix all together and cook for about 1 minute. Then, add the chopped tomatoes. When the chicken is thoroughly cooked, pour in the creme. Mix everything together and let simmer for a few minutes.



Gotta take a break from cooking for a quick selfie.


We like to put the stroganoff on top of the rice, but Brazilians like to put it on the side they also like to pair this meal with either french fries or potato chip sticks or crushed up potato chips. Then you’re ready to eat! Or in Portuguese pronto para comer! Desfrute de! Enjoy!
