Chicken a la King

READY IN: 38mins
Recipe by Joan Edington

I copied this one out of a friend's book so many moons ago that I can't remember where it's from, but it's so decadently fattening that I can't resist pigging out now and then. I usually serve with rice, but I suppose it would go with noodles or new potatoes just as well.

Very, very good! As an added chicken flavor I added half a can of Butter Ball Chicken Broth, along with a handful of frozen peas, and served it over biscuits.
