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.
