Recipe: Noo's Chicken Strogonoff

This is my 11 year old favourite thing to cook.

 5 chicken breasts, cubed (You can also make this with tenderised steak)
1 punnet mushrooms, thinly sliced
1 small red, yellow and green peppers, cubed
2 sticks celery, thinly sliced
1 small onion, finely cubed
1 250 ml tub cream, the cream needs to cover the chicken while its cooking
3 tbsp Brown onion soup/brown onion gravy powder
1/2 cup milk

Lightly fry the onion and celery till the onion is translucent
Add the chicken/steak and fry till it has browned on all sides
Add the mushrooms and cook till soft, then add the peppers In a mixing bowl, mix the cream and onion soup/gravy powder making sure there aren't any lumps
Add to the chicken mixture and stir regularly
To make sure that it doesn't burn, turn your plate down to a medium low heat
The sauce will thicken and if its a little to thick, add the milk about 5 minutes before serving

Serve with rice, vegetables and salad.
