Chicken a la King:

I have always loved Chicken Potpie, but it is usually a very time consuming thing to make!
This recipe by no means replaces a good Chicken Potpie, but it definitely helps to curb the craving!
It's comes together in a matter of minutes, and it's the perfect comfort food! Warm, creamy and just good!
We like to serve it with biscuits, but you could also use rolls or even toast!
I hope you try it out!

6 tblsp. butter
1/4 cup cornstarch
1/2 tsp. black pepper
3 cups chicken broth
1 & 1/2 cups milk
2 cups cubed, cooked chicken
2 cups frozen mixed vegetables
Prepared biscuits (here's my recipe)

In a large saucepan, melt butter. Whisk in cornstarch and pepper until smooth. Gradually pour in chicken broth and milk. Bring to a boil; cook and stir for 1-2 minutes or until thickened.
Stir in chicken and vegetables; heat through. Serve over biscuits!

-You can substitute the chicken for Turkey, for an equally delicious dish!

Just made this but subbed the starch for g/f flour as I plan to freeze left-overs for elderly parents meal and never liked the way the starches freeze. Also added a little finely diced onion & sauteed until clear at the butter stage. Was a very tasty & simple dish served with rice. Had to go for a small plate of seconds. Thanks for the idea for something to do with my leftover bird & broth. =)
