Chicken a la King Recipe

   Chicken a'la King is one of those dishes that I think counts as a comfort food.  A food that makes you feel warm & cozy and makes you think of the good ole days.  Of course, that just may be me too. 

Chicken a'la King
 4 chicken breasts
1 1/2 c. milk
1/2 c. flour
1/4 c. chopped pimentos
1 can peas
1 can chicken broth 
1 small can mushrooms 
1 green pepper, sliced or diced
1 stick of butter
2 T. cornstarch
1 T. parsley flakes
2 tsp. chives
1 tsp. salt
1/4 tsp. pepper

   Boil the chicken and then shred it or just use canned chicken.  Melt the butter in a skillet and cook the green peppers.  Stir in the flour, salt & pepper.  When it is nice and hot, stir in the milk, broth, peas and crumbled up bouillon cube.  Boil for one minute and stir in the pimentos, chives, parsley, mushrooms, chicken and cornstarch.

I just used some of my dehydrated mushrooms and chives instead.

  If the liquid is not hot enough, the cornstarch will not thicken the sauce.  Stir well and remove from heat.  Let it thicken for 5 minutes and then serve over hot biscuits, toast or egg noodles.  We prefer to eat it over homemade biscuits
