DIRECTIONS

  • Drain tuna or chop chicken finely.
  • Bring chicken stock (and optional mushrooms if desired), to a boil. Add celery seed and thyme.
  • Use a fork or a whisk to combine cornstarch with cold milk. Adjust amount according to whether you want a thicker or thinner sauce. Add to boiling stock, reduce heat, and stir until the sauce simmers gently.
  • Add tuna/chicken, peas, and sherry.
  • Heat through and season to taste with salt and fresh-ground black pepper.
  • Remove from heat. Let sit, keeping warm, for 5 minutes to blend flavors.
  • Serve over the starch of your choice -- rice, toast points, noodles, cornbread (I suggest recipe Recipe #277295 ), biscuits, etc.
  • Note -- if you have no homemade chicken stock I suggest using a good soup base (Tones brand is available in Sam's Club). Both bullion cubes and canned chicken broth are inferior substitutes for real stock and a dish this simple depends on the quality of the ingredients for good flavor.
  • Tip -- if you enjoy tuna casserole but have give it up because of the salt in the mushroom soup try using a suitable quantity of this recipe (with or without the peas), as a substitute for the diluted soup.
