This chicken ala king recipe is absolutely fantastic if you're in a hurry because it is so easy to do.
And like all my other recipes, this is a much more healthier alternative than fast food. Add a green salad and some vegetables, and you have a very satisfying dinner fit for a King!
Of course, I only have a Chef!
But that’s another story for another time.....
400 g of cooked chicken
1 very small onion
4-5 fresh mushrooms
1 clove of garlic
100 g of fresh peas
3 tablespoons of butter
2-3 tablespoons of flour
1 cup of milk
Salt and pepper to taste
1 tablespoon of finely chopped parsley (or green onion greens)
measuring spoons and cups
kitchen knife and chopping board
medium size saute pan (skillet)
Peel the onion and rinse lightly. Chop in to very small pieces.
Wash the mushrooms and pat dry with paper towels. Slice them into thin slices.
Next, cut the cooked chicken into small cubes.
Set the onion, mushrooms, and chicken aside for now.
Peel, rinse and chop the garlic into small slices.
a medium pan, add a tiny bit of butter. Turn heat to between low and
medium. Saute the garlic in the pan. When the garlic softens add the
fresh peas. Heat everything gently and then set aside.
In another saucepan melt the rest of the butter. Once that's done add the onion and mushrooms.
Cook over low-to-medium heat until the onions and mushrooms get a very light brown colour.
Then add the cooked peas.
Add the flour. Season with just a little salt and pepper to taste.
Stir everything until mixture is smooth.
Then gradually stir in milk.
Cook for about 2-3 minutes until sauce starts to bubble. Add in the chopped chicken cubes. Season with a pinch of salt and pepper!
Heat thoroughly for 5-7 minutes.
Serve with a nice light salad starter. Also, fresh cooked veggies on the side are a great idea for this dish.
Spoon the chicken mixture over your choice of hot cooked rice, or mashed potatoes.
Think of this ala king recipe as your time saver, as well as your health saver!
