Absolutely wonderful!! This was so easy to make. This is comfort food at its best. I did add frozen peas and served over biscuits. Sure beats those recipes that use cream of chicken soup for the sauce. My husband and I are arguing over who will get the left overs for lunch tomorrow. Thanks!

I made this last night for dinner and it was fantastic! I did double the recipe. I had 3 bone-in skin on chicken breasts to use up. i used the chicken broth from boiling the chicken. I subbed peas for mushrooms, I didn't have any on hand. This is a classic recipe. I remember eating this as a kid but it came in a pouch that you boiled in a saucepan. Please tell me I'm not the only one that remembers that. I'm showing my age. Great recipe will be made over and over. Thanks so much for posting!

My husband wanted me to cook this for him - he had this before.. I was kinda skeptical... but it was awesome - I will cook this again . I made servings for 5 - cooked three chicken breasts and added some chicken boullion to the water when i cooked the breasts- then used chicken water for my chicken broth. When i cooked the butter and flour.. I let it brown till is was golden brown before i added the chicken broth and milk. I also used fresh mushrooms, sliced, and let the whole thing simmer for at least 30 minutes - it was wonderful.

I halved the recipe for my wife and me and there's still enough for a light lunch tomorrow. Nice. Already had some sous vide boneless chicken thighs that I moved out of the freezer yesterday so this was ready in the amount of time it took to bake the buttermilk biscuits. I added a rounded 1/2 cup of peas to the sauce but everything else was ...er...kosher. Ok, by the book. Thanks for the memories that this dish brought to mind. This is too easy and too delicious not to make again and again.

I omitted the pimientos and used a can of mushroom soup as I didn't have pimientos or mushrooms. I added a little onion and some frozen peas and carrots. I served it over biscuits. It was great and easy to make.

This recipe is as good as my mother's! Thanks you so much for this. I don't see that I will ever use any other Chicken Ala King recipe.

Great recipe, and quick to make. I used canned mushrooms, but next time I'll use fresh.

This was good, however it was a little bland, so I added more salt and pepper than asked for in the recipe. I also added frozen mixed veggies.
