Sorry to report this was a retch-worthy, unmitigated disaster. This recipe calls for 1 cup of dry sherry, which made it taste incredibly bitter. Was this a typo? After researching other recipes, I would only use maybe a tablespoon of sherry for flavor and I would increase the broth and/or milk that is used. Very disappointing.
Chicken a la King
From EatingWell: EatingWell for a Healthy Heart Cookbook (2008)
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.

This is my family's best meal... being a working mother, this is fast, easy and we like it a lot. I've used olive oil instead of conolla, but the taste is great. not to mention the great nutritional vlaue it offers.... This shall be my most prefearble dinner choice
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.
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!!
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 :)
