  • 1/2 cup sour cream
  • 1 lb. boneless skinless chicken breasts, cut into 1-inch cubes
  • 1 teaspoon Diamond Crystal kosher salt divided (not fine salt)
  • 1/2 teaspoon black pepper, divided
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil, divided
  • 1 large onion, chopped
  • 16 oz sliced fresh mushrooms
  • 1 tablespoon minced garlic


  • Measure out the sour cream and remove it from the fridge, to allow it to warm up a little. 
  • Season the chicken with 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt and 1/4 teaspoon black pepper.
  • Brush 1 tablespoon of the olive oil over the bottom of a very large, deep skillet. Heat over medium-high heat, about 2 minutes. Add the chicken. Cook on all sides, until no longer raw, about 5 minutes total. Remove to a plate.
  • Add the remaining olive oil to the skillet. Add the onions and the mushrooms and sprinkle them with the remaining kosher salt. Cook, stirring often, until tender, 5-7 minutes. 
  • Add the garlic and cook 1 more minute. Add the chicken back to the skillet and stir-fry 2 more minutes, to ensure all chicken pieces are cooked through.
  • Reduce the heat to low and allow the skillet a few seconds to cool down a bit. Add the sour cream, mixing it in with a spatula or a wooden spoon. Don’t allow the sour cream to simmer or boil, to avoid curdling. Season with more black pepper and serve.
