Teaching Cooking

I have taught basic cooking to my seven children and to classes of elementary children. When my youngest daughter wanted to learn, I found that taking the recipes and making them into a step-by-step format made it easier for her, so here is a blog to hopefully make cooking easier for the beginner.

Chicken (or Turkey) a la King

As requested, here is an old stand-by of mine for leftover chicken or turkey.

Chicken - You can use either fresh chicken or leftover.  If you use fresh chicken, cut it in bite size pieces and cook in Olive oil, stirring to lightly brown it.  Cook for about 5 minutes.  Then add the vegetables and saute for a few minutes until they are the right crispness.

If you are using left over chicken, start by sauteing the vegetables and wait to add the chicken when the vegetables are almost cooked.

Vegetables = You can use a variety of vegetables.  If you are pressed for time, you can use a bag of frozen mixed vegetables and just add them to the cooked fresh chicken or cook in some water and then add to the chicken.

Vegetables I like to use: Celery, peppers, broccoli, cauliflower, green beans, peas, carrots, corn, onion.

After you have the chicken and vegetables together, add a can of cream of mushroom soup, sour cream, garlic salt, parsley, (basil is also a good flavor) and salt and pepper to taste.  Heat it all together and serve over noodles or rice.
