Chicken A' La King
9 T cornstarch
9 T butter
1 1/2 tsp pepper
2 chicken bouillon cubes
2 c water
1 can cream of chicken soup
4-5 c diced cooked chicken
1/2 - 1 c carrots diced and cooked
1/2 - 1 c corn (canned or cooked if they were frozen)
1 can green beans, drained
1 cup milk
Melt butter in saucepan. Stir in cornstarch until mixed. Add pepper. Mixture will thicken. Stir constantly. Dissolve chicken bouillon in 2 c water. Pour into butter mixture. Continue to cook and stir until thickened again. Add cream of chicken soup and milk (you can add more or less milk depending on the consistency that you would like). Be sure to get out all of the lumps. Add chicken and vegetables. Stir to mix. Heat until everything is warm. Serve over toast.
I'm telling you that this recipe was sooooooo sinfully yummy. DS loved it, and I can't seem to stop myself from sneaking little spoonfuls of my husband's since he's not back from his meeting yet. Somethings from your childhood are meant to left there (yes, I'm speaking of those Lima Beans) and others are meant to be brought back and enjoyed. I hope you take the time to enjoy this childhood favorite.
