2 slices bacon
1/2 cup chopped green sweet pepper
1/2 cup chopped onion
1/4 cup all-purpose flour
2 teaspoons instant chicken bouillon granules
1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
1/4 teaspoon pepper
1 cup milk
3/4 cup water
2 cups cubed cooked chicken
1 cup shredded cheddar or American cheese (4 ounces)
1 4-ounce can sliced mushrooms, drained
1 2-ounce jar (1/4 cup) diced pimiento
4 3-inch squares Buttermilk Corn Bread

1. In a 3-quart saucepan cook bacon until crisp; remove bacon, reserving drippings. Drain and crumble. Set bacon aside.

2. Cook sweet pepper and onion in reserved drippings over medium heat until tender. Stir in flour, bouillon granules, nutmeg, and pepper. Add milk and water all at once. Cook and stir until thickened and bubbly. Add chicken or turkey, cheddar or American cheese, mushrooms, and pimiento. Cook and stir until cheese melts and chicken is heated through.

3. To serve, split corn bread squares horizontally and place on individual plates. Top with chicken mixture. Sprinkle with crumbled bacon. If desired, garnish with fresh tarragon.

Buttermilk Corn Bread: Grease a 9x9x2-inch baking pan or two 9x5x3-inch loaf pans. Set aside. In a large mixing bowl stir together 1 cup all-purpose flour, 1 cup yellow, white, or blue cornmeal, 2 to 4 tablespoons sugar, 1 tablespoon baking powder, 1/4 teaspoon salt, and 1/4 teaspoon baking soda. In another bowl beat together 2 eggs, 1 cup buttermilk or sour milk, and 1/4 cup cooking oil. Add buttermilk mixture to flour mixture and stir just until moistened (batter should be lumpy).

Pour batter into prepared pans. Bake in a 425 degree F oven for 20 to 25 minutes or until golden brown.* Serve warm. Makes 8 or 9 servings.
