  • 4 tablespoons (1/2 stick) unsalted butter
  • 1/2 cup chopped green bell pepper
  • 1/2 cup chopped onion
  • 1/2 cup chopped cremini mushrooms
  • 1/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 1/2 cups whole milk
  • 1/2 cup low-sodium chicken broth
  • 2 cups cubed cooked chicken (see Note)
  • 1/4 cup chopped pickled cherry peppers
  • 1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
  • Freshly ground black pepper
  • Baguette, cut into four pieces, for serving


  1. In a large skillet, melt the butter over medium-high heat. Add the bell pepper and onion and cook, stirring, for about 4 minutes. Add the mushrooms and cook for 2 to 3 minutes more.
  2. Add the flour and stir well. While stirring, add the milk and broth. Bring the mixture to a boil while stirring frequently, then reduce the heat to medium-low. Add the chicken, cherry peppers, garlic powder, salt, and black pepper and mix well. Cook, stirring, until the mixture has thickened, about 5 minutes.
  3. Serve over baguette.


  • To cook the chicken, place 2 medium boneless, skinless chicken breasts on a baking sheet and bake at 350 degrees F for 30 minutes. Cut into cubes.
