My mother took her recipe "with her", sigh!
Fond memories of mothers chicken a la king.
Of coure, we didn't have crock pots back then, but this one is sooooooo close to mother's.

I LOVED it on toast points!


3 c. chopped cooked chicken (or turkey)
1/2 c. chopped green or red bell pepper
1/4 c. chopped onion
1/2 c. chopped celery
1 jar (2 oz.) red pimiento, drained
1 can (4 oz.) sliced mushrooms, drained
2 cans cream of chicken or cream of mushroom soup
1 pkg. (10 oz.) frozen peas

Combine chicken, pepper, onion, celery, pimiento, mushrooms and soup in crockpot. Cook on low 6 - 7 hours.

About an hour before serving turn heat on high and add peas.

Serve on hot rice, noodles or toast points.

****Sure she didn't use mushrooms, back then!
