Step by Step Method

Step 1

Heat the oil in a 10-inch skillet over medium heat. Add the onion, mushrooms, celery and carrots and cook until the vegetables are tender, stirring occasionally. Remove the skillet from the heat.

Step 2

Heat the butter in a 10-inch oven-safe skillet over medium heat. Stir in the flour. Gradually stir in the half-and-half and broth. Cook and stir until the mixture boils and thickens. Stir in the sherry, thyme, parsley and garlic powder. Season with the salt, pepper and cayenne pepper, if desired.

Step 3

Stir in chicken, onion mixture, peas, vermicelli and cheese in the skillet.

Step 4

Heat the broiler. Broil 4 inches from the heat until the turkey mixture is hot and bubbling and the top is browned.

I scaled back for one serve and had to use Angel Hair pasta as I could not get Vermicelli. When I added the liquid to the flour I immediately end up with a very thick batter so thinned it down with milk and then once I added the pasta, chicken and vegetable mix the whole dish was extremely thin and I was worried there was not enough liquid for the pasta to cook when put under the grill/broiler so added more milk so there was a slight liquid capacity and after 15 minutes at 175C it just started to bubble and slightly browned on one side. I served up half which was more than enough for me, and the leftovers fitted into a two-cup container which will become another dinner. I did add the cayenne pepper which I enjoyed and overall it was a delicious dinner, thank you BabyBelle, made for What's On The Menu tag game at FF&F .
