105/365 - Chicken A La King, Goulash Recipe, and laundry

In response to the comments that were left asking for the Lazy Mom Goulash recipe, I am sorry that I didn't link back to the recipe! I posted it back in February... It's in this Menu Plan Monday post: Lazy Mom Goulash recipe post.


My comments on this recipe are in italics.

Chicken A La King (from The American Peoples Cookbook, 1956)

Set out a 2-qt. saucepan.

Cut into chunks and set aside enough cooked chicken to yield
3 cups cooked chicken. (this turned out to be 2 boneless, skinless chicken breast halves)

Prepare and set aside
1 1/2 cups quick chicken broth (2 chicken bouillon cubes + water)
Cook and set aside (drain if necessary)
1 10-oz. pkg. frozen peas
Meanwhile, clean and slice
1/2 lb. mushrooms
Heat in the saucepan over low heat
1/3 cup butter, margarine, or chicken fat (ewwwwwww!)
Add the mushrooms. Cook slowly about 5 min., frequently moving and turning with a spoon. With slotted spoon remove mushroooms, allowing fat to drain back into saucepan; set mushrooms aside.

Blend into butter in saucepan a mixture of
1/4 cup flour
1 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon Accent (omit this, it's just MSG!)
Few grains pepper

Heat until mixture bubbles; cook 3 to 5 min. Remove from heat. Add gradually, stirring constantly, the chicken broth and
1 1/2 cups cream
Return mixture to heat; cook until thickened. Add the chicken, peas, mushrooms and
1/4 cup (2-oz. can, drained) pimiento strips
Cook mixture slowly until chicken is thoroughly heated. If desired, transfer mixture to a chafing dish.

Serve over waffles, rusks, Toast Points, or in Toast Cups. (I also enjoy having chicken a la king over rice! I served this over toast points for tonight though)
6 servings

This recipe made our "Make it again, Mom!" file. Actually, as soon as the kids took their first bite, their eyes rolled back in their heads and they gave it an instant thumbs up.


I hate pairing up socks!!!!!!

Me 2! Do you have a sock monster? It seems everytime I do laundry I am missing a sock. I end up with a basket of odd socks in my laundry room.

You've got 5 kids that's a lot of socks! Sadie I would assign that job to Nico...maybe that will keep him busy long enough for you to have a few uninterrupted thoughts.

You could reward him with picking out a treat at the store every friday.

I crack myself up...I remember when my son started of his jobs was to collect the trash in the smaller barrels and the floor of my car (ha ha) and he got to pick a treat along with nestle quick chocolate milk mix drink every Friday. I remember he wouldn't let any but MOMMY mix his chocolate milk because they didn't do as good as MOMMY!

Hey it worked and it got him to learn you gotta work to earn.

Hey, how is school going?

I have stopped pairing them up and now just dump them in the kid's drawer. I hate to think about how much of my life I would be wasting pairing up socks.
