Simple Suppers: Chicken a la King

I couldn't believe my husband had never had a dish that contains his own surname. I mean, if you're bob Smith and there was a dish called "Pork Chops a la Smith," wouldn't you have tried it by now? Well, now that it's my namesake, too, I figured it was time to try recreating another one of my childhood favorites - Chicken a la King.

It's really a lot easier than I figured it would be. Some butter, flour, veggies and milk - then serve it over noodles, bread, or both. Here's what you'll need (serves 2):

  • 1/2 green bell pepper, chopped
  • 1/2 C butter
  • 1/2 C all-purpose flour
  • 1/2tsp salt
  • 1/4 tsp ground black pepper
  • 1/2 tsp chicken bouillon powder
  • 3/4 C milk
  • 2/3 C hot water
  • 1 chicken breast, cooked & chopped
  • 2 oz chopped pimento
half of 1 small can mushrooms, drained, liquid reserved

Melt butter over medium heat and add drained mushrooms and green pepper, cook for about 5 minutes. Remove from heat.
Blend in the flour, salt, and pepper and cook over low - stirring constantly, until it's bubbly.
Stir in instant bouillon, milk, water, and reserved mushroom liquid. Heat to boiling, stirring constantly and cook for 1-2 minutes without reducing heat.
Stir in chicken and pimiento and heat through.
