Chicken a la king

So, here’s a little secret. Chicken supreme and chicken a la king are practically the same thing. Same sauce, the difference is the veg. So, supreme is with mushrooms and a la king is peppers. Well, that’s my understanding of it anyway. Maybe someone could put me right if I’m off track?

What do you need?

  • Chopping boards and knives
  • Wooden spoon
  • Two large pans, one with lid.
  • Colander
  • Garlic press if you have one, if not, you can just slice the garlic.

Ingredients

  • 3/4 bag of pasta shapes (a 1kg bag)
  • 4 chicken fillets
  • Tablespoon plain flour
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • Parsley
  • 2 x chicken oxo
  • About half pint milk.
  • Half each red & yellow peppers
  • One small onion.
  • 3 cloves garlic or dash of garlic puree.
  • Handful of mushrooms
  • Olive oil.
  • Cheese (optional)

How to make it

First, chop up your chicken into bite sized pieces, chop your veg into small pieces and get your other ingredients ready to go.

Put half a pan of water into the lidded pan, with a drop of oil in it and put it on to boil.

While the water heats, add a tablespoon of oil into the other pan and heat it.

Add in the chicken, with some salt and pepper and cook until its it’s sealed all over.

When the water has boiled in your other pan, put in the pasta. This should take approximately 10-15 minutes to cook, depending how you prefer it.

Ok back to the chicken. Once it’s sealed add in the vegetables and stir fry for a few minutes.

Then add the oxo’s, parsley, more ground black pepper and a tablespoon of flour and stir it for another minute.

Gradually add in some milk. Pour gently, a little at a time and stir well between pours to avoid it going lumpy. Continue with this until you have added all the milk.

Stir continuously until the sauce begins to boil then reduce to simmer while you wait for the pasta to finish cooking. If the sauce becomes too thick, add more milk or a drop of water. Remember, once the pasta is added to the sauce, the sauce will thicken on standing.

Drain the pasta using the colander once it’s cooked. Then add it into the sauce.

Give it a good stir, making sure to coat all the pasta. Then serve with grated cheese if desired.
