1 small can mushrooms
3/4 c chicken broth
1 4 oz can chopped pimentos

1 tbsp. flour
1 c cooked chicken, cubed

note:  I have been served this recipe, in the late 60's and early 70's by my mother in law and my wife. It is an old family recipe that can be used as a base for your experimenting.  Have fun.  If nothing else, it is a recipe that will use up that can of mushrooms and can of pimentos you have been wondering how to use for the past couple of years!
