This is one of those dishes that was a go- to in my house growing up. It’s great in a pinch and is easily adapted for the ingredients you have on hand. You can even take it a step further & bake with parmesan for 15 minutes and enjoy it as a casserole (You could also skip the chicken all together and enjoy this as a vegetarian recipe). A yummy choice for this time of year.
Yummy Mummy Recipe: Chicken A La King
3 chicken breasts, cut into 1″ chunks
1 cup rice, uncooked
1 medium onion, chopped
1 green pepper, chopped
1/2 cup frozen peas
1 can condensed mushroom soup
Salt & pepper to taste
Other options: red pepper, celery, corn… choose veggies based on what your family likes
1. First get the rice cooking; cook 1 cup rice in 2 cups liquid (I usually just use water, but chicken or veggie stock is nice for extra flavour). Bring to a boil; reduce, cover, & simmer for 15 minutes.
2. While rice is cooking, toss the chicken in a pan with some olive oil. Add onion & green pepper. Cook until chicken is cooked through & veggies are soft.
3. Add the frozen peas & mushroom soup (if you would like, add an equal amount of milk for a thinner sauce). Stir until smooth; add a dash or two of worcestershire sauce & stir until blended.
4. Season with salt and pepper & serve over rice.
Optional: If baking & eating as a casserole, combine rice with chicken & sauce mix in a casserole dish, top with parm, & bake at 350 degrees for 15 minutes.
