Cheat's Chicken a La King

READY IN: 1hr 40mins
Recipe by Mandy

This is a really simple way to do Chicken A La king as it uses cream of mushroom soup as a base. The sauce can also be done on the stove and goes great served over chicken patties. I found this in an old Rosella Soup recipe book.

Mandy this is super! I love chicken a la king and this just made it so much easier to make and super tasty. The aromas in the house melted in my mouth whilst cooking. My tastebuds kept wanting to taste it early. I did wait though. DH and family all enjoyed this. I served it over egg noodles with a spring lettuce salad and crusty Italian bread. I will definitely make this again and soon. This is pure comfort food and it tasted even better on a below 0 day. Made for Aussie/NZ Jan 2014
