Chicken ala King



chicken breast, chunks
carrots, chunks
mushrooms, slcices
corn kernels
chicken stock
red and green bell peppers, diced 
green peas
egg yolk
grated cheese
bread buns


1. Prepare the vegetables, cut them into cubes
2. Boil and cut the chicken into cubes as well
3. Melt butter in skillet and add carrots allowing them to soften a bit
4. When the vegetables are half cooked, add the chicken, mushrooms and corn
5. Pour the chicken stock and allow it to simmer until the sauce is smooth
6. Add the celery, as well as red and green bell peppers, season with salt and pepper
7.  Stir in beaten egg and allow it to simmer until sauce thickens
8. Toast bread or bake it
9. Pour into bread bowl and top with grated cheese, then serve

A quick confession, I was feeling lazy to chop have to chop the veggies so I got a frozen pack of green peas, carrots and corn for this one --- do not do that! Anyway, when I first tasted chicken ala king, it was one New Year's Eve celebration in my grandparents' house. My mom cooked the chicken sauce filling and she ordered puff pastries from a bakery and she filled the pastries before putting them in the oven --- it was amazing.

I can't remember if I've mentioned this to you before, I think I have, I am a bread person and I was a bread person when I was young and am still one today. I love chicken ala king because it is tasty and quite easy to do. You just put the ingredients in and then you have it. You do not even have to toast or bake the bread because for this particular dish, I didn't. I got buns, cut a hole in the middle and poured the sauce quite generously it dripped on my hand with every bite. 

Of course you can also have this with rice, but it's better with bread --- puff pastry if you can --- trust me!
