Club Chicken Casserole

1/4 cup butter
1/4 cup flour
1 cup chicken broth
2 cups milk or half-and-half
1 1/2 teaspoons salt
2 1/2 cups diced cooked chicken
3 cups cooked rice
1 can (3 to 4 ounces) sliced mushrooms, drained
1/4 cup chopped green pepper
1/4 cup chopped pimiento
1/2 cup slivered blanched almonds, toasted* if desired

In a large saucepan, melt butter over medium-low heat. Stir in flour. Gradually add chicken broth and milk, stirring constantly. Cook, stirring, over low heat until thickened. Add salt. Add chicken, rice, and vegetables.

Pour into a greased baking dish, about 11x7x2-inches. Bake at 350 F. for 30 minutes. Sprinkle with almonds.
