Ingredients
  

  • ½ cup salted butter
  • 125 grams baby bella mushrooms, sliced
  • ½ cup all-purpose flour
  • 2 cups chicken stock
  • 1 ½ cups milk
  • 2 egg yolks
  • cup heavy creamy
  • ½ teaspoon Salt
  • ½ teaspoon black pepper
  • Pinch cayenne pepper
  • 1 cup frozen peas
  • 1 cup chopped drained pepper
  • 4 cups chopped cooked chicken or turkey
  • Cooked pasta or sliced toasted baguette for serving

Instructions
 

  • In a large saucepan, melt butter over medium-high heat.
    Add in mushrooms and cook until mushrooms are soft, about 5 minutes.
    Add in flour and stir until there are no more specks of flour left.
    Pour in chicken broth and milk and bring to a boil. Reduce heat to low and simmer until sauce is thickened, about 3 minutes.
    For a richer sauce: in a small mixing bowl, whisk together egg yolks with heavy cream. Working quickly, slowly pour in 1/2 cup of the hot mixture into the egg mixture while whisking vigorously. Immediately pour this mixture back into the saucepan, whisking the entire time. Cook 2 minutes more.
    Stir in frozen peas, drained pepper, and cooked chicken and let heat through, 2 to 3 minutes.
    Serve hot over cooked rice, pasta, toast, or toasted baguette.

Notes

Store leftovers in the refrigerator, in a covered container. If you made this recipe with freshly-cooked chicken, leftovers will last up to three days. However, if you made this dish with leftover chicken that was already sitting in the refrigerator for a day or two – you’ll want to eat the leftover a la King as quickly as possible.
