    Howdy all,

    When I was a kid, my Memaw made the best chicken stuff I have ever tasted. It was basically something with milk, flour, chicken, and pimento's. I can't recreate the recipe but she always served it over toast with a side of english peas.. I have searched the web, but just can't find that taste. Any one out there ever made anything like this, and would mind sharing the recipe?

    I read your post and looked on the internet for chicken recipes that I thought might fit the bill. Most had green peppers, pimento peppers and mushrooms. I made one for supper that was good. I used butter in the skillet and added green peppers, garlic and onions chopped and cooked a few minutes. I then added flour to the mixture, stirred it and added milk and some broth from my canned chicken to make a white sauce (it is kinda like a gravey). I added canned chicken and would have added mushrooms but my DH hates them. I added chopped roasted red peppers. I used just salt and pepper for seasoning and a little chicken boullion since I didn't have much broth.

    To make the white sauce you need the same amount of butter and flour so you can blend them well then slowly add milk (and broth) for this. You could make something similar using cream of chicken soup and 1/2 can of milk.

    Maybe this will help you figure it out; I hope so. You might try different spices or herbs she might have added or maybe she gave someone the recipe. Good luck!

    I will give it a try... I think she just would boil a breast or two and use the stock.. I'll give it a try.
