      I have been actively canning for 47 years, often making Chicken a La King. The only difference in my method versus yours is that I put mushrooms in the initial recipe. After I open the quart jar I will then add a little wine and cream if serving to adults. Children seem to be just as happy with it right from the jar without adding wine and cream.
