Reviews for Comforting Chicken A La King
"Great recipe, clear and simple. The only thing I added was a touch of tarragon. The family raved, so I will make it again. I like simple recipes so I can add my personal touch once I am used to making it."
"Easy basic recipe but it a needed a bit more flavor and liquid. Added several chopped cloves of garlic, several tablespoons of cream sherry and about an1/8th cup more milk. delicious..."
"Serve this over your favorite cornbread recipe! It's a winner!"
"I love it. Great comfort food. I do add a bit more salt, but not much."
"bland but tastes good"
"This was pretty good! Will make it again."
"This was excellent! You could use this as a chicken pie filling. I served with wide noodles, it was so good. I'm thinking I might add some Parmesan cheese when I reheat it for a different taste. Great recipe and base recipe!!!!"
"Super easy, and a great way to use up leftover roast chicken!"
"Delicious! I left out the celery and added maybe 1 tsp of celery salt. I also used heavy cream instead of milk and the sauce was incredibly silky. It was really yummy!"
"I liked it, it was easy to prepare and tasted good. We had company and they really liked it as well. I used puffed pastry shells instead of biscuits. I like it better with the puffed pastry."
"Recipe was perfect. Had to use soy milk as I have a dairy allergy, otherwise followed as written. Husband loved it and will be used regularly at our easy Sunday evening meal. Serve this over homemade waffles - great."
"Excellent comfort food. I had the flu and knew I had to eat something. I used the meat off the rest of a store-bought rotisserie chicken, added a well drained can of peas and carrots and omitted the celery since I didn't have any. It really hit the spot! It's what I call a "feel-good" food. Thank you."
"Awesome!!! Folled exactly and it was so yummy....Thanks"
"Easy and so good!"
"I love this recipe...instead of the celery, I added finely chopped green pepper and I serve this in potato baskets."
"grew up on this comfort food!! Best served over mashed potatoes!!!"
"This was a very simple recipe to make. I had never put pimentos in ala king before but liked it. I made homemade biscuits that were large and smothered them in a bowl. Even my son liked it"
"this was the best ever and easyto make"
"It was very good for a quick version I used heavy cream in place of milk"
"This recipe had a great consistency and lots of flavor! I upped the recipe to make more because i made 8 bisquits. I added a cup and a half of milk and a cup and a half of chicken broth and 1/3 cup of flour. I did not have mushrooms or celery so i put a chopped up sweet red pepper, half an onion, and 1/3 cup of corn. I added as much chicken as i felt necessary. I will make this again!"
"easy to make - generally have all ingredients on hand. I served over Puff Pastry Shells because I had them. I had cooked a extra boneless chicken breast a few night before. Will have again."
"My husband loves this dish. I didn't use as much mushrooms as he isn't a fan and I added a cup of frozen peas/carrots. Very good will definetly be making this again."
"Very easy! I added carrots and corn. This should have more ratings!"
"wonderful! gave this recipe to friends.they love it as well!"
"very easy to make, enjoyable!"
"Absolutely my fav recipe for chicken a la King. I used pillsbury refrigerated biscuits and added about 3/4 cup of thawed small vegs (corn, peas, beans). Sauce was nice and creamy and leftovers were great also."
"loved this recipe!!! Very easy to make and so very good to eat. I changed it up a bit and substituted carrots for the mushrooms. I also poured mine over rice instead of the biscuits. Highly recommend this recipe and I will definitely make again and again."
"I've been making this recipe for 15 years or so. Instead of the biscuits, I bake puff pastry shells and fill them with the chicken mixture; simple but elegant."
"Wonderful. Great flavor as when prepared as directed. I did add peas, carrots and some corn."
"I loved this recipe. I added a teaspoon of chicken bouillon paste instead of salt. Also, I am not fond of pimentos, so I substituted capers. Yum."
"haven't tried it yet but I plan on making it soon. Sounds and looks delicious."
"Wow! A wonderful blast from the past! and so easy, too. Had to leave the celery out, but everything else went in. I agree with the biscuits being a nice touch. Toast is how I'd always had it before. Not anymore (:"
"Wonderful! I did however add carrots, peas, and alittle whole kernel corn to this recipe. It is very much a filling meal. Will make it often I am sure of that. Might next time even switch out turkey for the chicken etc. A way to use the leftover veggies and holiday meat."
"Very tasty. Will make again."
"love it! I could have it once a week if myhusband would not tire of it....wonderful!"
