COMMUNITY CHICKEN A LA KING

I call this "Community" Chicken A La King because it is from the community where I went to school (yes, I am old--1st thru 12th grade in one building and no kindergarten).

1/2 cup sliced mushrooms
1/4 cup shredded green bell pepper
1/4 cup diced onion
4 tbsp butter
3 tbsp flour
2 egg yolks
1/2 tsp salt
2 cups diced cooked chicken
1 cup chicken broth
1 cup milk
1/4 tsp paprika

Saute mushrooms, bell pepper, and onion in butter. Add the salt and flour to the mushroom mixture and blend. Blend the egg yolks with a small amount of the broth and add to the vegetable mixture. Add remaining broth and milk gradually, stirring constantly, and cook until sauce thickens. Add chicken and paprika. Place over hot water and cook slowly for about 10 minutes. Serve over hot biscuits.
