Chicken A la King

I remember having "Chicken A La King" as a child. I remember having a creamy dish over toast. I did some research last winter and found this recipe. I have made this several times - using already cooked chicken I had leftover over from another dish. We love it... plus it is quick and easy!


Chicken A La King

3 Tbsp butter

Fresh mushrooms (optional)

½ cup chopped bell pepper

¼ cup all purpose flour

1 tsp salt

1/8 tsp pepper

2 cups evaporated milk or half and half

1 ½ cups chicken broth

3 cups diced cooked chicken

Melt butter in medium saucepan. Add mushrooms, bell pepper and cook for 5 minutes; blend in flour, salt and pepper; Continue stirring and cooking until smooth and bubbly. Gradually add milk and broth, stirring constantly. Cook for 10 minutes stirring frequently. If you want a thicker sauce, blend 2 Tbsp of corn starch with ¼ cup cold water and add to sauce a little at a time until desired thickness is reached. Cook for a few more minutes. Add chicken – heat through. Serve over toast, biscuits, puff pastry etc.

Enjoy!
