Here's what you are going to need:
1/2 cup butter
1 green bell pepper, chopped
3 ounces fresh mushrooms, sliced
1/3 cup flour

1/4 teaspoon pepper
1 1/2 cups milk
1 1/4 cups Chicken broth
2 cups cooked chicken or turkey
1 jar (2 ounces) diced pimientos, drained (**See the note at the bottom of the recipe)
Here's what you need to do:
In a large skillet heat the butter over medium high heat until foamy. Add the mushrooms and green peppers. Saute over until the green peppers are tender crisp.
Add the flour.
Stir and cook for a couple of minutes to cook out the "flour" taste.
Stir in the chicken broth and milk. Mix well. Continue stirring and cook until thick and bubbly. Add the salt and pepper.
Add the cooked chicken and pimento.

**Note: If you don't have or don't care for pimentos, you can always use a small red bell pepper. Just saute it right along with the green peppers.
