Reviews forComforting Chicken A La King
"Good start but modified to 2/3 broth and 1/3 heavy cream and substituted chopped fresh red pepper for the pimento. Also added white wine and result was 5 stars."
"Great basic recipe. I added peas instead of green pepper, garlic, a splash of sherry and a dollop of sour cream."

"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."
