Life Update + “Cheap Stroganoff”


Exciting news! We’re moving into a new apartment next month! It’s been an adventure the last couple of days trying to figure out what to keep, donate, and get for the new place. We bought the comfiest, most beautiful emerald reading chair a couple days ago and have basically been showing strangers pictures of it in grocery store check out lines ever since, like proud parents. We feel like such adults. As excited as I am about the big move, it’s a double edged sword because it is another thing added on top of the chaos we already have going on, so it’s made our already hectic schedules that much more crazy. Tonight we threw together a quick dinner I was pretty proud of (we’ve affectionately dubbed it Cheap Stroganoff), so I knew right away I wanted to share it with y’all. Enjoy!

INGREDIENTS: 2 thawed chicken breasts (diced), 1 can of Cream of Mushroom soup, 2 garlic cloves (diced), pinch of dried oregano, tarragon, basil, and parsley, salt and pepper to taste, 2 cups of pasta of your choice (We used penne, in hindsight egg noodles would probably make a more appropriate Stroganoff, but we work with what we have!)


  • Add pasta to boiling water with a pinch of salt
  • In a large pan over Medium-High heat, add diced garlic and cook for about a minute, add thawed chicken
  • Once chicken has cooked (approximately 6 minutes each side), add can of Cream of Mushroom soup to large pan, along with all seasonings. Cook for 2-3 minutes
  • After pasta has boiled to desired texture, drain and combine ingredients in large pan. Let ingrdients mix well and serve warm.
