Asian Fried Rice

Creamed chicken is a very satisfying meal. Kids like it. You can serve it with some stuffing, a vegetable, mashed potatoes or rice. Creamed chicken is a dish my mother used to make for leftovers. After Thanksgiving, when we grew tired of turkey sandwiches, Mom always made this dish substituting turkey for the chicken. We always knew the leftover turkey was about gone and was quite grateful.

Warning: Always Make sure Chicken is done before you eat it. Juices will run clear, meat will be white to the bone. No pink or red. Raw chicken or chicken not cooked properly can be deadly.
