Creamed Chicken

Carol Junkins


Been making this for years, one of those comfort foods. We all love it and hope you will too. My mom used to make this for us when we were sick, or had a cold and served it on toast, rice, mashed potatoes, or put filling in a pie crust. And don't forget to serve with
biscuits ! ~ thanks Joey!

How to Make Creamed Chicken

    Boil til completely cooked.
  • 2Let cool down and tear it apart removing skin and shred in large pieces. Meanwhile throw the cut up carrots and celery and onions in deep saucepan with the broth you used to boil chicken in. You don't need to add all the water from the boiled chicken just enough to cover your shredded veggies and chicken pieces.
  • 3Bring back to simmer and cook your veggies. Add your spices and put the shredded chicken in.
  • 4Now mix the corn starch and water, milk, or cream and slowly add some of the hot broth to it then put back in chicken stirring constantly til thickened on simmer.
  • 5You can serve on rice, toast, mashed potatoes or pour into a pie crust and bake.
    Don't forget to serve with biscuits !
