Reviews for Slow-Cooked Chicken a La King
"Simple to put together with tasty results. I ended up seasoning with a bit more salt and pepper after tasting it."
"Just like Mom's only easier because of the slow cooker."
"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."
"Although easy to make, the flavor is very bland (needs more spices), the chicken was dry and the sauce was watery until I added cornstarch. Will not make again!"
"I agree with the other reviews that cooking 7 hrs is too long and this does not make six servings. It was easy to prepare."
"I used a frozen chicken breast and it still only took 4-5 hours. I also added 2 garlic cloves chopped and some frozen corn too. This was really good and I'll definitely make a double batch again. This recipe is no more than 2 servings."
"Loved this recipe. So super easy it just doesn't seem right. A few things: First, I didn't measure, but there is NO WAY there are 6 - 1 cup servings in this recipe. Second, I started it late an only had 4 hours so I cooked it on high 2 hours then low for 2 hours. My husband left it on warm another 2 hours while I was at the gym and it was still great when I got home. Third, no pinmentos so I subbed half a jarred roasted red pepper. Lastly, I used my measuring spoon labeled "dash" for the cayenne and it was probably a tad too much. This is going to be a regular recipe, only I will double it in the future."
"Very easy to prepare. Agree that 4-5 hrs cooking time is best. I didn't have pimentos on hand so I left those out. Next time I will try adding garlic as others suggest. My picky 3 yr old even liked it."
"My husband and I LOVE this recipe. But, cooking it for the listed time of 7 to 8 hours is about three hours too long, it leaves the chicken tasteless after that length of time. I cook it for about 4 hours. I add a couple of cloves of minced garlic to the mixture too."
