This is the Chicken a la King recipe from my first cookbook, a Betty Crocker version, circa 1980. The pages are dog eared and/or missing, full of rips and tears, and thoroughly used. I am submitting this recipe to keep it past the life of my old beloved cookbook. I have used this recipe for day after Thanksgiving turkey leftovers since I began making my own turkey. It's just as important now to my family as the Thanksgiving bird in its first form.
