Chicken a la King

EatingWell for a Healthy Heart Cookbook (2008)

Your rating: None Average: 3.8 (195 votes)

There's no need to feel guilty over this classic creamy combination of chicken, peppers and mushrooms. Our version uses low-fat milk and flour for thickening to make it plenty rich without all the saturated fat. Serve over whole-wheat egg noodles.

"I make this all the time using different veggies sometimes! I use olive oil instead of canola and omit the salt completely because I use cooking wine....we just salt to taste when it's on our plate. One of my favorites!! My 17 month old...

For all the effort, a bit lacking

I read the other reviews here before mine and I wonder...did I do something wrong? I don't think so...I followed the recipe to the letter, and I found the sauce much too thin, so had to add some corn starch to it. It wasn't bad by any means, it was just...kind of there. A bit bland. We felt it was lacking something...not sure what, though. Perhaps will try with other vegetables or more spices? However, if anyone wants to comment, suggest vegetables to use, please feel free to do so, as the chicken came out very nice and tender - easily the best thing about the meal. May try again, but do different things with it.

chicken does come out tender

Good Hearty meal

We don't like mushrooms, and my hubby doesn't eat veggies, so fixed without either. I used low sodium chicken broth the the sherry since didn't have any. Was very good. I served mine over steamed broccoli and my hubby's over noodles. Great go to meal. Any only 6 points on my weight watchers plan!!

Easy, fast, yummy, healthy

I make this all the time using different veggies sometimes! I use olive oil instead of canola and omit the salt completely because I use cooking wine....we just salt to taste when it's on our plate. One of my favorites!! My 17 month old daughter and husband eat it up :)

This was delicious!! I only used 1/2 cup of sherry (cooking, sorry) and didn't use as much salt b/c of it. I didn't have enough mushrooms so I too added some frozen peas. We loved it and it was very easy to make!!

Suprisingly great flavor! I used whole wheat flour and olive oil. I also didnt have any peppers so I used about 1/2 cup of frozen peas. I also used frozen mushrooms and used 1/2 of the sherry due to the juice from the mushrooms. Turned out very good. Served over brown rice!

Would be great if a metric

Would be great if a metric equivalent can be added to your recipes (even in brackets???)...not everyone lives in the States...other people around the World like to try different recipes from the internet - How many pounds are in a Kilogram - so I have the right amount of chicken breasts and how many ounces in a metric cup???
