Cajun Chicken a la King
6 to 8 chicken breasts
8 chicken bouillon cubes
8 cups water
1 medium onion, chopped
1 stalk celery, chopped
1/2 cup (1 stick) butter
1 cup flour
3 to 4 cups milk
Salt and pepper, to taste
1 cup sweet peas, frozen or canned
Dissolve bouillon cubes in water.
Add chopped onion, celery, and chicken breast. Boil until tender.
Remove chicken and chop into bite-size pieces. Reserve broth.
In separate pot, melt butter.
Add flour, and cook mixture for 3 to 5 minutes.
Slowly add 4 cups of the cooked chicken broth. Add slowly and stir continuously to avoid lumping.
Add milk until mixture resembles a thick soup. (You can thin by adding more liquid, either broth or milk, or thicken by adding a paste of milk and flour.)
Salt and pepper to taste.
Add cooked chicken and peas. Heat thoroughly.
Serve over homemade biscuits which have been sliced in half.
