Classic Creamed Chicken a la King (1981)

  • 2 lbs cooked chicken, cut into bite-sized cubes
  • 3/4 cup melted butter
  • 1-1/4 cups flour
  • 2 cup chicken broth
  • 5 cups half-and-half
  • 1/4 cup green bell peppers, chopped
  • 1/4 cup red pimentos, chopped
  • Salt and pepper to taste
Pour melted butter into small pan and bring to low boil.  Add flour; stir approximately 1 minute or until flour starts to brown. Remove mixture from heat.
In a small pot, bring half-and-half and chicken broth to a boil.  Add flour/butter mixture and stir rapidly until sauce becomes very creamy and thick.  

Add chopped chicken, green peppers, pimentos, salt and pepper.  Cover and simmer 20 minutes.

Serve with hot biscuits and garnish with green peas.  Serves 10 to 12.
