Chicken a la King

When I was in middle school, my church had a Wednesday night small service and dinner. Several of the ladies made dinner on those Wednesday nights. My latest nostalgia recipe search is Chicken a la King. This recipe is great, but it differs from the one we had at church.


What you need:

  • 1 lb. shredded chicken
  • olive oil
  • 1 onion, diced
  • 1 green pepper, diced
  • 2 medium carrots, thinly sliced
  • Mushrooms, thinly sliced (omitted, *gag*)
  • 2 cloves of garlic, diced
  • heavy cream
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • 1 bay leaf

Directions:

  1. In a big pot, fill halfway with water and add chicken. Boil until cooked then let cool and shred. Keep the stock.
  2. In a skillet, heat olive oil. Add onion and garlic; cook until onion is transparent. Add a little stock and stir well.
  3. Add the rest of the veggies. Season with salt and pepper. Add bay leaf. Stir and add a little stock.
  4. Simmer for 15 to 20 minutes, adding stock as needed.
  5. Add shredded chicken and cook for 5 more minutes.
  6. Add around 2 cups of heavy cream, lower heat and simmer until thickened.
  7. Remove bay leaf before serving over rice or pasta.
