Chicken a la King is warm and soothing. This version is delicious, albeit rich comfort food. It's a great winter dish, and a fine way to use up chicken leftovers.

Green pepper or red pimientos can dress up the dish for holiday time. If you don't like puff pastry, you can serve over cooked rice, toast, or noodles. Can be made ahead and reheated.

Allow 45 minutes to prepare.

"Enjoyed this last night. Great dinner on a cold winter night. This recipe is also good re-heated and served over rice."

Are you making this? 
5 tablespoon Unsalted butter
1 cup Mushroom; sliced
1/2 Red bell pepper; diced
1/2 Onion; sliced
3 ounces Sugar snap peas
1/4 cup Flour
2 1/4 cups Chicken Stock
3 cups Chicken breast; cooked, cubed
1/2 cup Carrots; chopped
6 Pepp. Farm Pastry Shells; (1 package)
4 tablespoon Cream; optional
1 tablespoon Sherry; optional
3 teaspoon Salt

Original recipe makes 6 Servings



Melt 1 tablespoon butter in skillet. Add mushrooms and saute until tender, about five minutes. Set aside. Saute onions, carrots, in an additional tablespoon of butter. Set aside.

Prepare puff pastry shells according to directions; they take about 25 minutes to cook.

Make a roux out of the additional butter over medium heat until bubbling (melt the butter and mix in the flour, bit by bit, whisking with a fork or whisk to remove all clumps before adding more).

Brown the roux to a light brown color, then gradually whisk in the chicken stock. Add the rest of the stock, keeping sauce simmering but not boiling furiously, and add the sherry. Reduce heat to medium and add the vegetables and cubed chicken.

Serve over puff pastry shells. Garnish with chives or parsley.

This is a pretty rich dish. BigOven calculates this at about 917 calories per serving, and about 62g carbohydrate.

Everyone at my supper table LOVED this! Snap peas were a pleasant change to regular peas. I served it over homemade biscuits, and next time will try egg noodles. YUM!
