Chicken a La King

I love this recipe. It's easy, it's delicious, and it makes a super velvety, wonderful sauce.


  • 1/4 cup chopped green pepper
  • Ad
  • 1 cup sliced, fresh mushrooms
  • 2 Tbsp. butter
  • 2 Tbsp. flour
  • 2 cups light cream
  • 3 cups cubed, cooked chicken (preferably breasts)
  • 3 egg yolks
  • 1/2 tsp. paprika (for color)
  • 4 Tbsp. soft butter
  • 2 Tbsp. dry sherry
  • 1 Tbsp. lemon juice
  • 2 Tbsp. finely chopped green onion, green part only
  • 2 Tbsp. finely chopped red pepper, for garnish


Saute green pepper and mushroom in 2 tablespoons butter until tender, but don't brown it. Push to one side and stir the flour in, making a roux. Cook the flour on low for 1 or 2 minutes. Stir in the cream, stirring until thick and bubbly. Add the chicken and heat through, stirring occasionally.

Blend the egg yolks, paprika and the 4 tablespoons soft butter, and set aside.

Add the sherry, lemon juice, and green onion. When bubbly again, add in the egg yolk mix all at once, stirring until blended. Immediately remove from heat. Sprinkle the red pepper over.


Serve over fettuccine noodles with a nice salad.

This sounds absolutely heavenly. I can't wait to try it as I've not eaten Chicken a la King since I was a youngish 40 years old. I don't know why I let the recipe just slip through the cracks, but I remember how much we liked it. This is going to make a nice surprise for the family.

Thank you for sharing Barb.

Thumbs up!
