This is very easy and tasty- pretty, too. (Despite my awful picture.) Can be served same day or frozen in larger quantities for OAMC. I also have the measurements to make this dish in larger quantities (x3, x6, or x9). If interested in these, just z-mail me and I'd be happy to supply them for you. I like to serve this with Quick Italian Green Beans.
- 4 ounces mushrooms, sliced
- 2⁄3 cup green pepper, chopped
- 1⁄2 cup butter or 1⁄2 cup margarine
- 1⁄2 cup flour
- 1⁄4 teaspoon black pepper
- 2 teaspoons chicken bouillon granules
- 2 cups milk
- 1 cup water
- 2 1⁄2 cups cooked chicken, cut up
- 4 ounces pimientos, drained
- puff pastry shells or biscuits or rolls or toast
- In a large skillet over med-high heat, cook mushrooms and green pepper in butter until peppers are crisp-tender; Remove from heat.
- Lightly spoon flour into a measuring cup, level off, and put into skillet.
- Stir in flour and pepper. Return to low heat until mixture is smooth and bubbly, stirring constantly.
- Stir in bouillon granules, milk, and water. Bring to a boil and stir 1 minute.
- Stir in chicken pieces and pimento. Cook until thoroughly heated.
- Freeze in a quart-sized freezer bag or serve immediately over puff pastry shells, biscuits, rolls, or toast.
I served this to my family and it was well received. However, I did make a few small changes. I added 2 cloves minced garlic to the mushroom mixture, omitted the pimientos and served over baked potatoes. I like to cut the potato in half length wise, fluff it up a bit then pour on the chicken mixture. This recipe is a keeper. Thanks for posting. Rachel Castle
A little more effort than some recipes I've made but this is excellent and worth the extra time. I made this to use up some canned milk I had that was approaching the "best use by" date and will put in the freezer for future meals. For the pimentos, I used jarred roasted red peppers which add a bit more depth of flavor. Thanks for sharing your recipe!
This has such potential to be a 5 star recipe for my family and Rachel's suggestions (esp. the baked potatoes since my family alllll love them) make it one I'm going to try again. I love that it's freezer friendly, because I'm all about convenience these days with a broken neck. Thanks so much to you, Munchkin, and to Rachel for the great ideas!
