Recipe Ingredients for Chicken a la King

400 grams Chicken, Breast, Meat Only
1 cup Milk, Nonfat, Fluid
125 grams Mushrooms
150 grams Onions
100 grams Peppers, Sweet, Green
3 tbsp Vegetable Oil, Canola
50 grams Brandy
0.75 cup Wheat Flour, White, All-purpose, Enriched, Bleached

Recipe Directions for Chicken a la King

  1. Toss chicken and flour in a medium bowl until coated. Heat 1 tablespoon oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Reserving the remaining flour, add the chicken to the pan and cook, stirring occasionally, until lightly browned, 2 to 4 minutes. Transfer the chicken to a plate.

  2. Reduce heat to medium and add the remaining 1 tablespoon oil to the pan. Add mushrooms, bell pepper, salt and pepper, and cook, stirring often, until the mushrooms are softened and starting to brown, 3 to 5 minutes. Pour in sherry; bring to a boil and cook, stirring to scrape up any browned bits, 3 minutes.

  3. Whisk broth and milk into the reserved flour until smooth. Stir the mixture into the pan. Bring to a simmer, stirring often. Stir in pimientos and the chicken and return to a simmer. Reduce heat to maintain a gentle simmer and cook until the vegetables are tender and the chicken is cooked through, 5 to 7 minutes. Stir in scallions and serve immediately.
