Manx Sherry Chicken with Mushrooms

This morning I was inspired by an old traditional Manx recipe.
It's what's for dinner!
Thought I'd share...

MANX SHERRY CHICKEN WITH MUSHROOMS
(Manx = Of the Isle of Mann)
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
8 Tablespoons Butter
1 cup Mushrooms, fresh, sliced
8 Tablespoons Flour
1 3/4 cup Milk
1 cup Chicken broth
2 cups Chicken cooked, diced
1/4 cup Pimentos, chopped
1 oz Sherry
1 Tablespoon Parsley,
Chopped Toast

Melt the butter in a large, heavy skillet.
Add the mushrooms and cook until limp.
Whisk in the flour and cook for 3 minutes,
stirring frequently.
Whisk in the milk and broth. Bring to a
boil.

Reduce the heat, add the chicken, pimentos,
and sherry.
Simmer for 25 minutes.
Serve over quartered toast slices, garnished
with parsley.
