pretty much made this as written, but I doubled the recipe for the canteen. added pepper and more salt, and threw in chopped capsicum for colour. served it with dumplings done in a mushroom soupy mix, and everyone said it was great! Could not find pimentos, other then dried, so I left them out, didnt want to tamper with dried, incase it changed the whole style of the dish. Been so cold here, which is not usual, that warm comfort food hit the spot. I must be old, I made this in the 70's, most of the young ones thought I invented it :) made for Aussie swap May2013
This is a wonderful version of chicken ala king! I had some leftover Brazilian Beer Chicken so used that instead of cooking the chicken; I warmed up some chicken broth and wine to use in the sauce as directed. I loved how light this was without using milk or cream, yet still had a rich and flavorful taste. Served over homemade potato rolls and really enjoyed - thanks for sharing the recipe!
Very good! I have never had chicken a la king with peas before, but I really liked it! I used thighs instead of breasts, and had no pimento but otherwise followed the directions. Thanks for posting!
