Turkey Ala King

What does Ala King mean?

It is an American dish of diced foods, usually chicken or turkey, in a cream sauce with pimientos, mushrooms, and green peppers. (I did not use green peppers in this recipe)

This is what I did with the last of my Turkey. I have to say 3 big meals out of one turkey has been quite a success.

Ingredients:
1 pound of cooked and shredded turkey or chicken
1 jar of pimientos
1 onion chopped
1 cup celery
2 cups sliced mushrooms
1/2 cup of butter
3/4 cup flour
5 cups chicken broth
1 cup cream
1 1/2 cups bread crumbs

Directions:
In a little butter saute celery and onions until tender. Place onion, celery, turkey, pimientos, and mushrooms in a 9 x 13 casserole dish.


Melt butter and add flour until mixed and clumpy . Whisk in chicken broth slowly to avoid lumps and cream. Mixture should be somewhat thick like gravy. Add to casserole dish. Stir and cover with bread crumbs. Bake at 350 until heated through. Mine took about 45 minutes. Serve and enjoy!
