This is the recipe that I mentioned in my Frugal Mini Popovers post the other day. It is from a dear friend of mine. She converted the recipe to the format used in the 30 Day Gourmet cookbooks. I was unable to post it in that format, but it is a recipe that can easily be doubled, or tripled and frozen.
Frugal Turkey (or Chicken) a la King
¼ c. Butter or margarine
¼ c. Flour
1t Instant Chicken bouillon
1/8 t. Pepper
2 c. Milk
2 c. cooked diced chicken or turkey
8 oz. Frozen peas
1 jar Sliced pimento (drained 2 oz jar)--optional, I didn't use the last time I made it.
1/8 t. Thyme
Assembly Directions: Melt margarine in saucepan. Stir in flour, bouillon, pepper and thyme. Gradually add milk, stirring constantly. Cook over medium-high heat until mixture boils and thickens, stirring constantly. Stir in chicken/turkey, peas and pimento. Simmer 5 minutes or until thoroughly heated.
Freezing Directions: gladware works well. Thaw and microwave to heat up to serve.
Serving Directions: Heat on stovetop. Spoon chicken/turkey mixture into hot split puff pastry shells or popovers.
Comments: Can substitute 2 5oz cans boned chunk chicken.
