Creamy Smoked Paprika Chicken a La King

This is an adaptation of Chicken a La King, but it has the addition of smoked paprika, cream and white wine. This recipe uses cooked chicken, but turkey works for this recipe too (a great use of leftovers).

We served it over toasted English muffins, but you can also serve it with toast or with plain white rice. It is a great in the week, quick, tasty meal. If you don't have time to roast a chicken, use pre-cooked store bought chicken pieces instead.
