This Chicken a la King was as good as the reviewers said. I followed the recipe exactly for the sauce but poached chicken pieces (primarily dark meat) and took the meat off the bone. (Wish recipes would specify amount of chicken and not just say for example "4 chicken breasts" -- I think I ended up with about 4, possibly even 5 or 6,cups of chicken meat (even I didn't measure, ha!) and so doubled the sauce. It was the right decision. Used the broth from cooking the chicken instead of boullion and hot water. Used fresh mushrooms, garlic, onions, carrots, peas, and sweet pointed red pepper instead of green pepper and pimiento. Used fresh thyme and some dried mixed herbs along with salt and pepper. DELICIOUS! Once I'd chopped the veg and cooked the chicken, making the dish itself was easy. I did the chicken the day before and chopped the veg early in the day, so it all seemed a breeze. We had it on toast -- I think I would love it on mashed potatoes, so will do that next time. Thank you for the recipe.
