Chicken a la King is a favorite in our house. A meal that is perfect for the busy day.
A wonderful way to use leftover chicken, it is almost a deconstructed chicken pot pie.
Chicken a la King is one of my family’s favorite dinners. It is mine too since it’s so delicious and easy to make.
My hubby’s favorite is serving this over Pepperidge Farm Puff Pastry Shells but when I can’t find them I use the sheets and cut them.
This is comfort food, perfect to serve year-round. I always make extra and double up this recipe because it freezes well. so it’s great when you don’t feel like cooking you can just pull a container out of the freezer and you have dinner.
