1 1/4 pounds chicken, lightly browned and cubed

buttery cooking spray

1/2 cup light butter

1 medium bell pepper, diced

1/2 cup onion, chopped

1/2 cup celery, diced

4 ounces fresh mushrooms, chopped

1/2 cup whole wheat flour

1/2 tsp. salt

1/4 tsp. black pepper, ground

1 1/2 cups fat free milk
(We used Fairlife Fat Free Milk because it's lower in sugar and higher in protein.)

1 1/4 cups reduced sodium chicken broth

1/3 cup fat free sour cream

1 package (10 oz.) frozen peas

1 jar (2 oz.) diced pimientos, drained

This is a classic comfort food. It's a great recipe to use with leftover chicken or turkey. Serve it over rice, toast or noodles.

1. Cut up chicken into bite-sized cubes.

2. Heat a large non-stick pan over medium-high heat. Lightly coat with buttery cooking spray. Add the chicken and cook, stirring occasionally, until the chicken is browned. This takes about 10 minutes. When finished, put chicken on a plate and set aside.

3. Melt the butter in the pan over medium-high heat. Then add the bell pepper, onion, celery and mushrooms. Cook for about 6 minutes, stirring occasionally until the bell peppers are crisp-tender.

4. Stir in the flour, salt and pepper until combined.

5. Stir in the milk, broth and sour cream. Keep stirring until it's mixed and begins to bubble, about 1-2 minutes.

6. Mix in the chicken, peas and pimientos. Keep cooking and stirring until everything is hot.

7. When finished, serve over rice, toast or noodles.

8. One serving is a full cup. Our tasting panel preferred each serving over two slices of toast.
