Quick and easy to make Chicken a La King is a delicious old classic chicken recipe.I have used mushrooms in this recipe as I love them, but feel free to leave them out. Instead you can use cooked peas and carrots.You can freeze Chicken a La King,so make double if you like,then you can thaw it in the microwave the next time you feel like having it again It is also great to use with leftover chicken.

This recipe can be served with rice,noodles or macaroni.You can also serve it over mashed potatoes.
