Reviews forTurkey a la King with Rice
"Traditional leftover cooking at its finest. The proportions of butter, flour, stock and milk are perfect. I would suggest adding 1/4 tsp Pepper, 1/4 tsp Vinegar, and a pinch of Nutmeg. I think it just needs a bit more seasoning - finish with more salt and pepper to taste, or whatever else you like. When seasoned a bit more, it's really tasty - it got a rating of "really good" from a finicky teenager who does not like casseroles."
"This was good, but it could use a little more seasoning. I added 1/4 tsp. ground black pepper and we sprinkled a little curry powder on top. I also used frozen peas and carrots. My husband liked it - it's a great way to use up leftover turkey!"
"Need to add spices to give it more flavor."
"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."
