Servings: 4 people
  • 8 oz mushrooms, sliced
  • 1/4 c butter (+ 1T )
  • 1/4 c flour
  • 1 c milk
  • 1 c chicken broth
  • 2 1/2 c chicken, chopped into small pieces
  • salt and pepper, to taste
  • 2 pkg 90 second brown rice
  1. Sauté the mushrooms in 1 T butter until browned (6-8 minutes). 

  2. While the mushrooms are sautéing, melt 1/4 c butter in a medium sauce pan over medium heat. Once the butter is melted and bubbly, add the flour and whisk until combined (about 1 min). 

  3. Add milk and stir until thickened (about 4 min). Once thick, add the chicken broth and continue to stir until the sauce is desired texture (about 3 min). Add salt and pepper.

  4. Add the mushrooms and chicken to the sauce and stir. Cook the microwavable rice. Serve immediately over rice.

Recipe Notes
  • Traditional versions of this recipe call for red or green pepper and other veggies. I'm sure this is delicious too if you want to toss them in!
  • This can be served over rice, mashed potatoes or over toast (my dad's preference).
