Comfort Food

I have a little dish I like to call comfort food. It just makes me feel all warm and fuzzy inside.  I swear I ate this growing up, but I knew it as "Chicken A'la King" and we ate it on top of toast.  Mom swears this is NOT the recipe!!!  I don't know if I screwed up her version along the way and just fell in love with this? or if I just randomly threw some things together in a pot one day because it's all I had on hand.  Whatever the case, this is one of my most FAVORITE.meals.EVER. 


2-3 chicken breasts, cooked & shredded

1/2 medium yellow onion, chopped

2 cans of cream of mushroom soup

3/4 can of milk {use a soup can to measure}

Salt & pepper to taste

Cook your chicken & shred.


Return to the pot and add the soup & milk.  Depending on your preference for consistency, add as much or little milk as you want.  I typically add about 3/4 of a soup can of milk because I like this to be nice and creamy...not too thick...not too runny.  Just right :)


Stir in onions, salt, & pepper.  I usually add in lots of pepper because it gives it a nice little kick!  Return heat to low & simmer for about 15-20 minutes, stirring often.



Remove from heat & serve over rice. 


Y'all.  This is GOOD.  And it's even BETTER the next day!!!
