      this, to me is one of the best ‘comfort’ foods and is just so easy to make…
      Chicken A La King
      2 cups cooked chicken
      ¼ cup chopped onion
      1 green pepper, chopped
      1 small can of mushrooms or 4 to 6 oz fresh chopped mushrooms
      2 tbs oil or butter
      ¼ tsp pepper
      6 tbs flour or less flour
      1 cup milk
      ½ cup cream
      1¼ cups chicken stock, or water with bouillon
      4-oz jar chopped pimentos
      salt if not using bouillon
      Heat the oil or butter and saute’ the onion for 2-3 minutes.

      Add the green pepper and mushrooms, and cook until softening. Add pepper. Add the flour.

      Cook for 2 minutes before adding liquids. Add liquids. Add salt if needed.

      Bring to a simmer and cook for 3-4 minutes. Add chicken and pimento. Heat through.

      Serve over biscuits, toast, or if trying to lower carbs…over mashed cauliflower.
