Faith's Cajun Chicken A La King
Recipe from Vicki Leger
6-8 chicken breasts
8 chicken boullion cubes
8 cups water
1 medium onion, chopped
1 stalk celery, chopped
1 stick butter
1 cup flour
3-4 cups milk
1 cup sweet peas, frozen or canned
Dissolve boullion cubes in water. Add chopped onion, celery, and chicken breast. Boil until tender. Remove chicken and chop into bite size pieces. Reserve broth.
In separate pot, melt butter. Add flour, and cook mixture for 3-5 minutes. Slowly add 4 cups of the cooked chicken broth. ADD SLOWLY AND STIR CONTINUOUSLY to avoid lumping. Add milk until mixture resembles a thick soup. (You can thin by adding more liquid, either broth or milk, or thicken by adding a paste of milk and flour.)
Salt and pepper to taste. Add cooked chicken and peas. Heat thoroughly.
Serve over homemade biscuits sliced in half.
