Chicken a La King- Freezer Friendly

Total Time

This is very easy and tasty- pretty, too. (Despite my awful picture.) Can be served same day or frozen in larger quantities for OAMC. I also have the measurements to make this dish in larger quantities (x3, x6, or x9). If interested in these, just z-mail me and I'd be happy to supply them for you. I like to serve this with Quick Italian Green Beans.

I served this to my family and it was well received. However, I did make a few small changes. I added 2 cloves minced garlic to the mushroom mixture, omitted the pimientos and served over baked potatoes. I like to cut the potato in half length wise, fluff it up a bit then pour on the chicken mixture. This recipe is a keeper. Thanks for posting. Rachel Castle

So much better than the ordinary chicken a la king, great for left over turkey. This one's a keeper...thanks for posting this.

A little more effort than some recipes I've made but this is excellent and worth the extra time. I made this to use up some canned milk I had that was approaching the "best use by" date and will put in the freezer for future meals. For the pimentos, I used jarred roasted red peppers which add a bit more depth of flavor. Thanks for sharing your recipe!
