Rodney Dangerfield's Vegetable Chicken Dish
1/2 cup thinly sliced onion
2 1/2 tbsps. corn oil
1 1/2 cups sliced celery
1 cup fresh peas (uncooked)
2 cans (4 ozs. each) mushrooms, sliced
1 1/3 cups clear chicken soup
3 tbsps. cornstarch
1 tsp. salt
1 tsp. liquid seasoning of your choice (sherry, fresh lemon or lime juice, etc.)
1/4 tsp. ground ginger
1/2 lb. sliced cooked chicken (or turkey)
Cook onion in oil until soft, add celery and cook together for a minute or two. Stir in peas, cover and cook 5 minutes. Combine all ingredients, add to skillet, stirring until thickened. Arrange chicken or turkey slices over
vegetable mixture and cook another 5 minutes. May be served with rice for complete, one dish meal. Serves 4.
Thoughts: Good leftover dish for baked chicken or turkey. If desired, you may increase the amount of chicken, add a few strips of pimento for color, and 3 water chestnuts, sliced.
