Chicken A La King

Chicken A La King is one of my favorite, homey old-fashioned recipes. This scrumptious entree can be served over top of Homemade Rolls, toast, biscuits or noodles, and it is one of the best comfort foods ever. The base is a cream sauce made from chicken broth and seasoned with poultry seasoning and thyme. Several colors of bell peppers, onions, mushrooms and peas are then added to the sauce along with cooked chicken. It’s absolutely superb.

Last month my youngest son flew in for a few days so I served this delicious chicken dish for one of the meals, along with Homemade Rolls, Old Fashioned Pumpkin Pie, Custard Pie and Coconut Custard Pie–a few of his favorites. It had been years since I’d made Chicken A La King, but I made it frequently when the kids were little.

I’d made the rolls the day before for another meal and because it makes three dozen rolls, I started looking through my cookbook in order to find something else to use the rolls with. The chicken sauce is really good drizzled over rolls and is a little similar to Creamed Dried Beef Over Biscuits, except it uses chicken and veggies instead of dried beef.

If you’re looking for a quick and easy entree for dinner, Chicken A La King should be on the menu. It’s tasty and delicious and one of those recipes you’ll never be able to get over or grow tired of. It’s so good.
