Chicken a la King

This recipe is from my mother-in-law and is a family favorite! When I went to visit my parents, I helped them make a big batch to put in the freezer (in smaller portions) so they could pull something out of the freezer quickly and easily for dinner.

Chicken a la King
1/3 c mushrooms (2 oz can) (opt.)
1/4 c chopped green pepper
1/4 c chopped carrot (opt.)
1/4 c butter
1/4 c flour
1/2 tsp salt
1/8 tsp pepper
1 c chicken broth
1 c half and half (or milk)
1 c diced cooked chicken
1/4 c chopped pimento (opt.)
1/4 c chopped bacon (opt.)

Saute mushrooms, green pepper, and carrots in butter. Blend in flour and seasonings. Cook over low heat, stirring until mixture is smooth and bubbly. Remove from heat and slowly stir in broth and cream/milk. Bring to a boil over low heat, stirring constantly. Boil 1 minute. Add chicken, pimento, and bacon and cook until heated through. Serve with rice, noodles, or biscuits, OR put in labeled freezer bag with instructions to heat and serve.
