We thought this was fabulous! I increased ingredients (with the exception of the nuts) to feed the family, and I had to substitute almonds for the pecans. I don't think that marred the integrity of the recipe, though, because it was so delicious! (I toasted the nuts before adding them.) I was also happy to find an a-la-king recipe that didn't call for cream soup. I served this over a pilaf of orzo and rice, topped with a little fresh parsley. Everyone at the table gobbled this up. Thanks!
