I just made the creamed chicken recipe up as I went along. I saut�ed some carrots and onions in butter and then added a bag of frozen chicken stock I had in the freezer. To that I added a small carton of half and half, the peas, salt and white pepper. I kept adding cornstarch that was dissolved in a bit of cold water until it reached the consistency I wanted.
On occasion I purchase a family pack of bone in chicken breasts. I simmer them with celery, onions, carrots, salt, pepper and bay leaf. I then freeze smaller portions of the chicken and broth separately, very handy to have around.
Below is another recipe having the chicken around works for.
