Chicken à la King

Ingredients

1 tbsp cooking oil

4 chicken breasts, cut into cubes

250g white button mushrooms, washed and sliced

1 large green pepper, cut into chunky cubes

2 tbsp butter 

1 onion, sliced

1 tsp crushed garlic

2 tbsp cake flour 

1 cup chicken stock 

1 cup cream  

Salt and black pepper, to taste

Method

Season chicken cubes with salt and pepper and fry for about 4 minutes until golden on either side.

Remove the chicken from the pot and set it aside. 

Next, melt the butter in the pot and sauté the onions and mushrooms until soft, about 5 minutes. Add a generous pinch of salt and pepper.

Add the crushed garlic and green pepper and fry for another 5 minutes or until tender.

Mix in the cake flour.

Add the chicken, stock, and cream to the pot and allow to simmer on low heat for about 15-20 minutes, stirring every few minutes, until the sauce thickens.

Season with salt and pepper to taste.
