Thanks honey...I'll check it out...I did find a similar recipe that you posted on the board last year...but Umpa said she would check it out...and there were no more I thought I'd revisit and see what I needed to replace those ingredients with!

Thanks again! See you in the morning!! <grin>

Sorry...didn't know that I needed to provide the original recipe it is:

Melt 6 tablespoons of butter. Stir in 1/2 cup all-purpose flour, 3/4 tsp. salt, and 1/8 tsp. pepper. Add 2 cups milk, 1 cup water, and 1 tsp. chicken bouillon all at once. Cook and stir over medium heat till thickened and bubbly. Cook and stir 1 to 2 min. more. Stir in 2 cups cubed cooked chicken or turkey, one 4 oz. can mushroom stems and pieces, drained, and 1/4 cup chopped pimento. Heat through. Serve over rice, toast points, English muffins, etc.

My biggest question is what do I substitute for the all-purpose flour in this recipe and can I use heavy cream instead of the milk or would that be too thick!?!

Thanks for your help!

Hey Umpa! My husband's favorite all time meal is chicken ala king over rice. I know how to do the cauli/rice, but I'm not sure about the rest...can you help!?!

I agree with Beebs on this one! I'm a real recipe follower and, while I paused the video and typed everything into MSWord, I didn't get many amounts...did you use a pound of ground beef or more!?! My family loves Mexican...can't wait to try this!!! Looks delicious!!

Thanks, Doug!!

Hey girls!  I started my time of the month yesterday, have had a headache for 2 days now...usually they go away with Ibuprofen and a cup of coffee...not this one! My question is...could it be withdrawal from the sugar/carbs. since I just REALLY started FTS a couple of days ago!?! (I've been trying to do it on my own...but was way off on how to figure net carbs...thanks Donna for the help with that!!) Any ideas would be greatly appreciated!!!   :P   :)
