  • 1/2 lb wide egg noodles uncooked
  • 4 tbs olive oil divided
  • 1/2 lb kielbasa cut into 1/4-inch slices
  • 1/2 lb fresh button mushrooms
  • 1 1/2 lb chicken tenders OR chicken breasts cut in strips
  • 1/2 tsp EACH paprika pepper, salt, basil, oregano and thyme
  • 1/8 tsp cayenne pepper more if desired, up to 1/2 tsp
  • 2 tbs flour
  • 1 tbs tomato paste
  • 1 clove garlic minced
  • 1/2 cup dry sherry
  • 3/4 cup chicken stock
  • 1 tbs Worcestershire sauce
  • 1/2 cup sour cream
  • 1/4 cup sliced green onions for garnish


  • Cook noodles per package directions; drain and set aside.
  • Heat a large deep skillet over medium-high heat. Add 2 tbs of oil and sear the mushrooms and kielbasa until nicely brown, stirring constantly so they don’t burn. Remove from the pan and set aside.
  • Mix the cayenne pepper, paprika, pepper, salt, basil, oregano and thyme. Toss the chicken in this seasoning blend, coating evenly. Then sprinkle with the flour and toss to coat.
  • Add the remaining 2 tbs of oil to the same pan and heat over medium-high heat. Saute the chicken until almost cooked—about 5 minutes. Push the chicken to one side of the pan and add the tomato paste and the garlic; saute for 1 minute.
  • Deglaze the pan with the sherry and simmer until it’s almost evaporated then add the stock, the Worcestershire sauce and the mushroom/kielbasa mixture. Simmer until liquid is reduced by half—about 5 minutes.
  • Remove from heat and stir in the sour cream. Serve over noodles.
