I have fixed this dish many times for company, and I've never had anyone fail to ask for the recipe. The leftovers—if there are any—are very good heated up in the microwave. —Elva Jean Criswell, Charleston, Mississippi
Comforting Chicken a la King has a thick and creamy sauce that's perfect over biscuits. “I've been making this for 30 years,” says Ruth Lee of Troy, Ontario. “It's a wonderful way to create a quick lunch or dinner with leftover chicken.”
“This recipe is so quick and easy, and I always receive a ton of compliments,” writes Kristi Black from Harrison Township, Michigan. “It quickly becomes a favorite of friends whenever I share the recipe. Modify the spiciness with the intensity of the salsa and the green chilis to suit your taste.”
TIP: Kristi suggests serving her Easy Chicken Enchiladas with sweet corn cake for a “really yummy” summer spread!
"A co-worker shared this recipe that was originally her grandmother's," writes Bev Dutro from Dayton, Ohio. "When I make it, I use a box of refrigerated cooked chicken and fresh zucchini my neighbor gives me from his garden."
“My brother told me this was the best chicken
he had ever tasted,” writes Kara Cook from Elk
Ridge, Utah, “and it’s one of my very favorites, too.
“Not only is it easy to prepare, but it also looks elegant, tastes spectacular, and never fails to bring raves when I serve it to guests.”
TIP: Try using any leftover mozzarella cheese to dress up salads, sprinkle on cups of hot chili or make mini pizzas.
While this is my mom's recipe, I had completely forgotten about it and just recently found a copy of this fantastic dish. The rich sauce and wonderful batter that goes on the chicken makes this an exquisite entree that is ideal for company. —Denise Kleffman, Gardena, California
Our family of five enjoys trying different ethnic cuisines. This Italian specialty has a little Mexican zip. Be careful not to overcook the manicotti. If the filled shells happen to break, just place them in the pan seam-side down.
You won't believe how delicious, yet how easy this dish is. We tasted it for the first time when our son's godparents made it for us. Even my grandmother—who's 95 years old—likes to serve this creamy dish for luncheons with friends! —Vicki Schlechter, Davis, California
