Kittencal's Turkey or Chicken a La King

"This is a great recipe to use up leftover turkey or chicken, I serve this over baked puff pastry shells or cooked egg noodles, Texas toast works well also, feel free to add in other veggies, if you don't care for garlic then omit and just use the mushrooms, this recipe may be doubled if desired to serve 6-8 --- you will *love* this! :)"

    I made this for my husband for dinner and he really enjoyed it! I added peas and instead of pimiento I used red bell pepper. Thank you Kitten for a dish that will be repeated!

    This was so good -- and we used MILK!!! The whole family loved it, and it is a great and easy way to use leftover turkey. We served it over thick French bread. Wouldn't change a thing. Thanks, Kittencal!

    Thank you Kittencal for another "Great Tasting Recipe" that is "Easy to Do", for the leftover cooked chicken that I often have. I didn't have the cooked chicken this time but had everything else. Made with 6 Chicken Tenders that I seasoned and quickly cooked in 1/2 Cup White Wine and 1 Cup Chicken Broth. I did add 2 Tbl minced onion when I cooked the mushrooms & garlic. Other than that, I followed your recipe. Used 3 Tbl flour because I used the broth from cooking the Tenders. The sause, after adding the cream, was perfect. I used my garden peas insted of corn. It does serve 4 for Lunch or 2 for Supper with a salad. I put it on 4 slices of wheat toast and sprinkled some chopped garden parsley on top. It was "awesome" a keeper and a new favorite .

    This was very tasty. I used both peas and corn and served over rice. I did need to add about 1/2 - 1 cup more chicken broth than called for in the recipe. I would definitely make this again. Thanks for sharing.

    Very good! It was a winner with the kids. Used leftover turkey and milk instead of cream, but will definitely make it again. If you added bow tie pasta, it would taste a lot like the Bertolli Chicken Florentine dinner (just need to add some frozen spinach with the veggies.)

    Delicious! This tastes very similar to something my German mother would make called "Huehner Frickasee". I loved that it had so much flavor! I don't use bouillon cubes (msg sensitivity) so I boiled the chicken in chicken stock and then used the "juices" in the pot for the chicken stock in the recipe. I also added two bay leaves for flavor and it turned out wonderfully without the cube. Also I used canned asparagus instead of pimento simply because I like asparagus and I had it one hand and I think it went really well with this recipe. Thank you for posting this- you always have incredibly delicious recipes :)
