Chicken Ala King

READY IN: 20mins
Recipe by Chris Reynolds

My mother used to make this recipe using leftover chicken. It has always been a favorite of mine, even though she used pimento which I don't care for. But you can leave it out, no harm done!

Excellent. recipe . A real keeper. I cut the seasoning to 1/2 tsp (I used mock Bell's Poultry Seasoning, recipe #69629) and added some dried tarragon.
