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.
