Have you heard it? The question floating around – “What’s for dinner?!” Yes, I hear it all the time with a houseful of rumbling tummies. So today, I am sharing this super easy peasy Chicken A La King recipe that you simply HAVE to try.
How to Make Chicken A La King
The clever people would say that Chicken A La King originated in the 1890’s and was originally created by a chef with the name of William King – from there the Chicken A La KING, although there are many speculations of the origin of the dish. It consists of a cream sauce often made with sherry, mushrooms and vegetables with diced chicken served over rice or noodles.
What Vegetables can you use to make Chicken A La King
Vegetables such as green peppers, red peppers and sometimes even marrows are added to this delicious creamy béchamel sauce (a simple white sauce made with butter, flour and milk.) I used green pepper and mushrooms in my version, and added a little garlic and chilli for extra flavour. I also love to smother my creamy sauce with fresh parsley right before serving.
A meal fit for a King
What I love most about this recipe of Chicken A La King, is that any leftover roast chicken can be used from the day before. A wholesome dinner put together in no time. A little also goes a long way, make sure to make extra to freeze for easy access! Enjoy!
