Chicken a la King Recipe

A long time Cooper family tradition and a favorite of mine as well.

Ingredients

  • 2 tbsp butter
  • 1/4 cup onion, diced
  • 1/4 cup celery, thinly diced
  • 1 tbsp flour
  • 3/4 cup chicken stock
  • 1/2 cup cream (or milk)
  • 1/2 tin cream of mushroom soup
  • 2 cups chicken or turkey, diced
  • 1 cup frozen peas
  • 8 slices sandwich bread, crusts removed

Directions

  1. Melt butter. Add onions and celery, and saute until translucent.
  2. Sprinkle with flour and stir to absorb butter.
  3. Add chicken stock, cream and soup. Stir well and let simmer 5 minutes.
  4. Add meat and peas. Simmer another 15 minutes.
  5. While the sauce is simmering, cut crusts off bread and press slices into muffin tin forming little bread cups.
  6. Toast in 400º oven for 8-19 minutes. When toasted, remove to plate and fill with sauce. Serve immediately.

Yields 4 servings.
