  • 6 tablespoons butter
  • 1 cup mushrooms, sliced, (more or less for taste)
  • 3 tablespoons flour
  • 4 cups heavy whipping cream
  • 2 to 3 cups water, depending on desired consistency
  • 3 chicken breasts, boned, cooked, and cubed
  • 2 tablespoons cooking sherry
  • 1 cup green peas, cooked
  • 2 (6 oz) boxes rice, cooked
  • salt and pepper, to taste


In a large skillet, heat butter. Add mushrooms and sauté until tender over medium heat (only a few minutes). When mushrooms are finished, add flour to the skillet. Slowly stir in the whipping cream and water. The consistency of the sauce can be altered by adding more or less water. Stir constantly until the sauce is thickened.


Add chicken, and heat the mixture until boiling. Cover, and simmer for about 5 minutes. Add sherry, still stirring, as well salt and pepper to taste. Again, more or less sherry can be used.


Lastly, stir in the peas and serve over rice.

I was wondering

I was wondering if I could get the recipe that was in the magazine several years ago? It used chicken broth, only one cup of whipping cream, green onions, and it didn't call for peas or sherry.
