"Simple to put together with tasty results. I ended up seasoning with a bit more salt and pepper after tasting it."

"This was my first time making and eating chicken a la king and I loved it! I took the advice of some other reviews and used 2 cans of cream of chicken soup and there was a perfect amount of sauce. I also used mixed veggies instead of peas. So easy and I Will make again!"

"Great Weeknight Dinner. I used mixed frozen veggies, insted of just peas. I also left out the green peppers (too strong a flavor for me) and added a little chicken broth as the sauce was really thick. My crockpot only took 6 hours to cook. Nice and warm on a cold night."

"Although tasty, it had more of a stew-like consistency, than the thick chicken a la king I remember from childhood. My husband and I actually liked it better the 2nd day after it had thickened some."
