Simplify by using a can of cream of mushroom soup and dilute with milk until you like the consistency for a gravy. Add chicken chunks and warm. Other toppings we like are peas, bacon, hard boiled eggs. Reserve the extras for a salad tomorrow.

Been using similar recipe for years. Have been asked to make it (with helpers) for teachers' dinner on parent teacher night. I add a sprinkle of garlic powder while mixing in milk (or water) and often use a 12.5 oz. can of chicken (from Costco) and use its juice as part of the bouillon. So quick when I'm tired and we need nutritious dinner. Picky eaters love the sauce over rice and can add their choice of pineapple, raisins, chopped tomato, chopped red or orange bell pepper, coconut, grated cheddar, chow mien noodles, or just eat it the boring. This is a wonderful meal for a sick person who needs soft, gentle, nutritious food :D

This recipe was great! I made a roux with butter and flour,then added soup and slowly added the milk. No lumps! I made it for a party and it was a hit.
