5 Star Plus - I am switching my allegience from the Chicken a la King I recipe (on this site) to this Chicken a la King III. I've used the other recipe often and loved it as long as you added sherry which was missing from the ingredients. I saw this last night and decided to try it. This is now the one I will make - the ingredients are all on the mark - I just added two minced scallions and a pinch of thyme and cayenne pepper which it didn't need but that I like. Both are 5 star but we prefer this one now.
Basically a good recipe, but definitely needs some additional spices to add flavor. Too bland for our family's taste.
Did make some changes. Used a chopped shallot and minced garlic to saute with mushrooms, 1/2 cup carrots and 1/2 cup frozen peas. I used white wine instead of sherry and added about 1/4 tsp. dried thyme. Turned out great, lots of flavour. Will make again for sure.
For luv2cook, who hates to waste the egg whites: those egg whites can be saved in a little bowl or zip lock bag, and used the next day to make a heart healthy omlette. I was surprised when I tried this type of omlette- very tasty! Enjoy your a la king without guilt! :D
Good basic recipe. I followed other's advice and added garlic powder and chili powder to the cream mixture and worsterschire sauce to the chicken broth. I will though, next time use only 1/2 cup of broth and 1/2 the amount of flour and 1/2 cup of sour cream and only 1 egg yolk. Even though I added an extra bell pepper and an onion, the dish was drowning in sauce. Very good though.
This is the best chicken a la king recipe that I've fixed and I've tried quite a few over the years. I did it a little different. I used whole chicken breasts and browned them first in my pressure cooker in some vegetable oil. Then I added about 2 cups of water and cooked them in the pressure cooker for about 40 minutes and then took the meat off the bones and proceeded with following the recipe. I had it with some biscuits and corn. Yum!
What a fabulous recipe! It is so easy to make, yet it seems so indulgent. I added half an onion and a couple of cloves of garlic, and like other reviewers, I served it over puff pastry. I don't think it is bland at all, it's delicious!
I used frozen mixed vegatables
I also buy a large bag of chicken tendars I prepare these the dice up and add to mixture
