Directions

In a large skillet, heat butter.  Add mushrooms and saute 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.

Hmmmm, I'm going to try this receipe one day. I wonder how it would turn out if I used broth instead of water? I am not a water person!! I like the flavor of broth....chicken, beef or vegetable, it's so much better than water, which has no flavor. And, I'm going to pull/shred my turkey by hand, instead of cutting it up in chunks. I have a reeeeeally great receipe for turkey ala king, but I don't measure anything as I am old and, have been cooking for a very long time so, I can't post it because I can't tell you girls how much of what goes in.

I made this tonight using left over turkey, I did not have any cooking sherry and I used mixed vegetables instead of peas, and I put it over mashed potatoes instead of rice, I just substituted a few things that we had in the house, It turned out GREAT!!
