• 1/2 cup salted butter
• 8 ounces mushrooms, sliced
• 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
• 2 cups chicken broth
• 1½ cups milk
• 2 egg yolks
• 1/3 cup heavy creamy
• 1 cup frozen peas
• 1 cup chopped drained pimientos
• 4 cups chopped cooked chicken


1️⃣ 00:00:13 – In a large saucepan, melt butter over medium-high heat. Add in mushrooms and cook until mushrooms are soft, about 5 minutes.

2️⃣ 00:00:31 – Add in flour and stir until there are no more specks of flour left. Pour in chicken broth and milk and bring to a boil. Reduce heat to low and simmer until sauce is thickened, about 3 minutes.

3️⃣ 00:01:06 – For a richer sauce: in a small mixing bowl, whisk together egg yolks with heavy cream. Working quickly, slowly pour in 1/2 cup of the hot mixture into the egg mixture while whisking vigorously. Immediately pour this mixture back into the saucepan, whisking the entire time. Cook 2 minutes more.

4️⃣ 00:01:44 – Stir in frozen peas, pimientos, and cooked chicken and let heat through, 2 to 3 minutes.

5️⃣ 00:02:18 – Serve hot over cooked rice, pasta, toast, or biscuits.

I've been making this for years. I cook onions with the mushrooms because I like the flavor. Excellent video – easy to follow.

Richard Shull says:

Love this video for the amateur chefs who try at home. Versus everyone else advice this is a great tutorial for amateurs. But if you're reading this, 2 years later as of this writing. You can sub peas for broccoli. You can also add peppers, red to sub for pimento. But I also use a blend of white and red onion about a quarter onion each. Depending on your batch. Don't forget your celery and carrots (if you'd like). Don't over salt if you use store bought broth.

Yeah I made this last month and it was super bland. It needs a lot more ingredients like spices and veggies like pepper’s sweet onion, spinach plus… I just made it again today and added all of the above and it’s yummy now.
