Chicken a la King And Summer.

Good Wednesday everyone! It is hard to believe the weekend is almost here again, no complaints though. I love weekends. This Sunday at my church there is a "Chili Contest" taking place. I signed up to be one of the judges...there are about 20 different chilies to taste and some people like to make their chili really hot. I hope I don't cry because my mouth is terribly on fire! I am looking forward to being a judge though, sounds exciting.

Onto some non-hot food. This is a perfect meal for dinner. It is easy and takes less than 45 minutes to make. Try throwing some corn or some other veggies in to make it even better for you. Make sure to eat it with a biscuit - makes it taste much better.

Chicken a la King
1 tube (6 ounces) refrigerated buttermilk biscuits
1/4 cup butter, cubed
1/2 cup all-purpose flour
1 can (14-1/2 ounces) chicken broth
1 cup milk
2 cups cubed cooked turkey
1 cup sliced cooked carrots
1 cup cut fresh green beans
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon pepper
Bake biscuits according to package directions. Meanwhile, in a large saucepan, melt butter. Stir in flour until smooth; gradually add broth and milk. Bring to a boil; cook and stir for 1-2 minutes or until thickened. Stir in the turkey, carrots, green beans, salt and pepper; heat through. Serve with biscuits. Yield: 5 servings.

Summer. My favorite season of the year. Summer means swimming, BBQ's, amusement parks, water parks, long evenings, outside events, fairs, and can't forget mosquito bites. I love not being able to sleep in the middle of the night 'cause you are itching from their bites. Not. But, I love summer and mosquito bites are part of summer.

Have a great rest of a week and I'll see you with a great Friday giveaway next!

Ahhhh, I'm a vegetarian now, BUT as a little girl, my precious mom, used to make Chicke A la King and serve it on Toast triangles, and even though I did NOT love meat (even back then) I remember that I DID love this! This brings back Precious Memories not only of my mom but of her in the kitchen and she was so proud of that dish!
Thanks for sharing, it warmed my heart!
