Reviews for Turkey a la King with Rice
"Need to add spices to give it more flavor."
"This was really good and super easy to make. Really liked that there was no fattening cream or cream of mushroom soup and lots of vegetables. My family liked this and it is a great way to use leftover Turkey. Will be saving this recipe."
"Was a great recipe for left over turkey! Real simple but was a little bland, if make again will add some pepper or something."
"Super yummy! Was so happy to come across this because I really am tired of leftover Turkey from Thanksgiving! I've always been a fan of Chicken a la king but had never actually made it. I did add a little extra butter to the pan after I sauteed my vegetables and then added the flour. Allowed the flour to cook for a few minutes and then added the broth and milk. I was afraid there could be a raw flour taste by just mixing it with the broth. I always didn't have to dirty a bowl ;)"
"Make this all the time it is wonderful!!!! My daughter request it often. Actually we are having it tonight! = )"
"This was very good. I made as described. no revisions necessary!"
"Added 1/8 t dried tarragon leaves but could add 1/4 t. Also added ground pepper to taste."
"I haven't made this but I am going to. I have leftover turkey to use. I might use frozen peas & carrots instead of just peas. That would make it more colorful!"
"Just so-so. Not enough taste for myself or my husband. Kinda bland."
"Left out the celery and changed the green peppers to red for a more authentic a la King. Very tasty!"
"YUM! Great alternative to the can of mushroom soup. Perfect use for leftover thanksgiving turkey. Might leave out the bell pepper next time."
"Sounds yummy!!- havent tried it yet, but may would add a diced carrot for color."
"I served this over egg noodles instead for a different twist and it tasted amazing!"
