Ingredients

2 tbsp (30 mL) butter
2 cups (500 mL) sliced mushrooms
2 stalks celery, sliced
1 onion, chopped
1/2 tsp (2 mL) salt
1/4 tsp (1 mL) pepper
1/2 cup (125 mL) chicken stock
2 cups (500 mL) Milk
1 lb (450 g) boneless skinless chicken thighs or 
chicken breasts, cut into 1-inch (2.5 cm) chunks
2 tbsp (30 mL) all-purpose flour
2 cups (500 mL) chopped asparagus or 
green beans
1 red bell pepper, diced

Preparation

In large skillet, melt butter over medium-high heat; cook mushrooms, celery, onion, salt and pepper, stirring, for about 5 min or until tender but not brown. Stir in stock; bring to boil.

Stir in 1-1/2 cups (375 mL) of milk; bring just to simmer. Stir in chicken; reduce heat to low and barely simmer, stirring often, for 5 to 10 min or just until chicken is no longer pink inside. Push chicken and vegetables to one side of skillet.

Whisk flour into remaining milk; whisk into sauce side of skillet. Stir to combine well. Increase heat to medium and bring just to a simmer, stirring often. Cook, stirring often, for about 5 min or until sauce is slightly thickened.

Stir in asparagus and red pepper; simmer, stirring often, for about 5 min or until vegetables are tender-crisp.

Tips

Maintain the sauce at a low simmer when cooking chicken to keep the chicken tender and moist. Boiling can cause toughness.

Healthy Eating Tip: This recipe serves up an excellent source of riboflavin ' one of the vitamins important for making energy. Milk is one of the few great natural sources of riboflavin.
