    Chicken a la King for 50

    6 pounds cooked chicken, diced
    1 pound 12 ounces unsalted butter
    1 pound 4 ounces all-purpose flour
    3 quarts chicken stock
    2 1/4 quarts whole milk, warmed
    Salt to taste
    8 ounces pimento, diced
    1 pound chopped, sauteed mushrooms

    Note: you need 18-20 pounds raw chicken on the bone to get the 6
    pounds you need. After cooking, remove the skin, debone, then dice.

    To make the white sauce, melt the butter in a large saucepan, remove
    from the heat. Add the flour a little at a time whisking until
    smooth. Add salt then the warm milk gradually whisking constantly.
    Cook and stir until smooth and thick, about 15-20 minutes. The
    sauce has to come to a boil to thicken.

    When the sauce is thick mix the chicken, mushrooms and pimentos
    into the sauce. Correct the seasoning if necessary. Yields 50
    portions of 5 ounces each. Serve with rice, noodles or puff pastry
    shells.

    Note: Some recipes call for chopped hard-cooked eggs to be added,
    optional.
