Chicken a la King

This was one of my favorite dishes growing up, and I usually make it on my birthday. There's absolutely nothing healthy about it, but it's total yummy comfort food. (Sorry about the completely un-appetizing picture... it tastes good. Really. :) )

Chicken a la King
Serves 6-8

1/2 cup butter
1 green bell pepper, chopped (1/2 cup)
3 ounces fresh mushrooms, sliced (I leave this out)
1/2 cup all-purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon pepper
1 1/2 cups milk
1 1/4 cups chicken broth
2 cups cut-up cooked chicken or turkey
Hot mashed potatoes, rice, or toast (We always do homemade mashed potatoes)

Melt butter in 3-quart saucepan over medium-high heat. Cook bell pepper and mushrooms in butter, stirring occasionally, until bell pepper is crisp-tender.

Stir in flour, salt and pepper. Cook over medium heat, stirring constantly, until bubbly; remove from heat. Stir in milk and broth. Heat to boiling, stirring constantly. Boil and stir 1 minute. Stir in chicken; cook until hot. Serve over mashed potatoes, rice, or toast.
