September 12, 2016, 03:17:09 am N. Truth Seeker: Wa salam sisters. So kind of u to remember. Alhumdulilah that Allah gave us another chance to live thru the blessed month of Zil Hajj.  Was a busy time for all of my family.
September 11, 2016, 08:26:43 am Zeynab: Wa'salaam my dear Sis Heba Smiley  Yes, Alhumdulilah, the 10 days of this blessed month went well by the Grace & Mercy of Allah. I wish the same for all.
September 11, 2016, 02:20:02 am Heba E. Husseyn: Salam my dear MV team and other sis and bros.  I pray the first 10 days of the bless month of Zil Hajj has passed well for all.  Hajj culminates in about 2 days. InshAllah.

June 11, 2016, 06:32:29 am Ruhi_Rose: I came across a pinterest page on the Quran which says "The Quran is the central religious text of Islam."  Let me put it this way: Quran is the ONLYText of Islam. If u r following the Quran, u don't need anything else.

A yummy, easy and light main course dish coming up folks.  Ya gonna like it, trust me.  It's Chicken la King.  It's great for lunch or dinner, and also super taking for picnics.   

It's traditionally trumpeted as a British dish in some circles but in reality it's American in origin.  This recipe was the brainchild of William (or Bill) King, a cook at the Bellevue Hotel in Philadelphia in the late 1800s.  But it first appeared as a recipe in books and journals in 1900. 

Okay, so much for its history.  Now let's get down to making it.


 3 tablespoons margarine
 1/4 cup chopped green bell pepper
 1/4 cup chopped green onion
 1/4 cup flour
 1 tsp cornflour
 1 teaspoon salt
 1/8 teaspoon pepper
 2 cups evaporated milk or half-and-half
 3 cups cooked diced chicken
 Keep 2 cups chicken stock aside after chicken is cooked
 1/4 cup chopped red bell pepper


Melt butter in a large saucepan.

Add green pepper, red pepper and green onion.  Cook for 5 minutes, until a bit crisp.

Blend flour and cornflour with 1/4 cup cold water and add to the green & red pepper.  Also add salt and pepper.  Stir.   

Then, gradually add milk or half-and-half and the chicken broth.  Stir constantly.  Continue cooking over low to medium-low heat, stirring, until mixture is hot and thick.   

Cook for a few more minutes; add chicken pieces and heat thoroughly.

Serve with or over fried toast, plain toast, fried rice, boiled rice or croissants.  It's better to have it over as it's supposed to be quite thick.

Should be enough for 4.

Variation:  You can also mix about 1 tea cup boiled frozen peas (drained and washed) if you like.

Below are the fabulous pics.

Oh!  I love this.  I've made it a few times, only I used large green chillies (removing the seeds) instead of bell pepper.  It's mesmerizing.  And yes, it's very light.
