I got this recipe off of another food blog called get off your butt and bake! go check it out for more detailed instructions. It was delicious and so easy to throw together. There are so many options you can pretty much add whatever your family likes. And we just served it over hot biscuits since I didn't have puff pastry. So yummy! We will definitely be trying this again.
CHICKEN A LA KING SAUCE:
1/3 Cup Butter melted
1/4 Cup Cornstarch dissolved in 1/2 Cup COLD water.
1/2 Cup Chicken Broth
1/4 tsp. Salt
1/4 tsp. Pepper
1 teaspoon granulated Sugar
2 cups Milk
1 1/2 cups Grated Cheddar Cheese or other
*I also added:
1/4 tsp. Cracked Red pepper flakes (opt)
1/4 tsp. Onion powder (opt)
1/4 tsp. Celery Salt (opt)
Add to the prepared Sauce:
Diced or shredded cooked Chicken breasts and steamed veggies of your choice.
*This is also a great way to use leftover turkey or ham
In medium saucepan over medium heat, add the butter and stir while it’s melting. Add the broth, seasonings, Milk and the Cold water and Cornstarch mixture. Stir continuously over heat until sauce has thickened. Turn to low heat, and add the grated cheese. Do not let the sauce boil. It it seems too thick, simply add a bit more milk or Chicken broth to the sauce. Add the diced chicken and steamed veggies of your choice. *If you are adding frozen peas, make sure that they don’t have a build up of ice around them. It will thin your sauce.
Fill your puff pastry shells with the chicken sauce, and top with a bit more grated cheese. You can also use this sauce on top of Toast, biscuits, Toasted English muffins, etc.
