TO oreo95 Jun 7, 2019 Liked the ease of the recipe, but definitely lacking in spices. I will stick to my old standby by recipe. In the early 1950's, my mom took my sister and me to the Arcade in downtown Dayton for this dish. It was served over homemade biscuits. oreo95, Would you please share your old stand by receipe/ Thank you, JudyK. '

We've always served Chicken ala King over toast. I use a muffin tin. Place bread over cups placing fingers in between corners and push down into cups. Bake at 350° for about 10 minutes till golden brown.. They come out looking like small crowns. Serve 2 crowns on plate spooning filling to top. It will spill onto plate. Always use pimentos. They add so much flavor. Yum!

This is a quick go-to recipe which I have been making for years. I have never cooked it in a slow cooker, always in a pot on the stove since it is so quick.

I enjoyed it, but found it needed a little more flavour with spices. Not bad. I will cook it again, maybe in the fall!

In the reviews, it was mentioned to use two cans of soup which I did, but one of them I thought was Cream of Chicken was Creamy Onion. This turned out great and my husband loved it. A keeper and EASY!

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.
