Recipe Collection: Creamed Chicken and Rice

admin December 9, 2010

Creamed chicken is a wonderful comfort food.  With the temperatures getting colder, comfort food is in order!  I especially loved this one as a kid (from the frozen food section, then), so now I have created my own version.  Delicious, creamy, oh-so-satisfying.


  • 1/4 c. onion, diced
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 4 tbsp. butter
  • 2 tbsp. arrowroot
  • 1 c. chicken stock
  • 1 c. cooked chicken, shredded
  • 1 c. milk or cream
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • 1 c. brown rice


First, cook rice according to package directions.  Saute onion and garlic in butter until softened.  Mix in arrowroot powder.  Add stock and milk and stir and cook over medium heat until it starts to simmer and thickens.  Add salt and pepper to taste.  Serve over rice.  Makes 4 – 5 servings.

Simple, delicious!  Try cooking the chicken in stock (bone-in, if you wish), then set it aside to cool and shred.
