Chicken a la King in puff pastry shellI love this recipe. It's easy, it's delicious, and it makes a super velvety, wonderful sauce.


  • 1/4 cup chopped green pepper
  • Advertisement

  • 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.

Cook onion in butter until tender. Add milk and soup. Bring to a boil and boil ten minutes, stirring constantly. Add chicken and remaining ingredients and heat thoroughly.

This Betty Crocker one is my fav!

I leave out the pimentos (ick) and sometimes sub out toast for the rice. I like red and yellow peppers vs. green (but green are traditional). You can sub out a small of canned mushrooms for fresh, but I prefer fresh.


Drain the canned ones well and pat them dry if you go that route. Oh, and I add garlic and onion powder to everything (just me--just a few shakes--not really measured). That is not in the recipe--just me :)

It is amazing over a thick Texas toast! YUM!! Comfort food on a cold day!!

Boy - all of these sound good so it may be difficult to choose which one to try first.

My mother cooked on a wood stove most of my younger years and she used her oven more for cooking larger cuts of meat and the best biscuits anyone ever made! So I tend to like to cook dishes like this because they do so well on the stove top burners.


There does not seem to be many differences in the recipes so it seems you could just improvise with whatever you have on hand when the yearning for this type of dish come up.

I have even cooked this when I only had canned chicken breast and canned mushrooms and it turned out very well.
Instead of rice, I sometimes make toast points or biscuits and it is so good!

Here are a couple of variations but still basically the same.

Melt butter; add mushrooms and green pepper, cooking about 5 minutes, slowly.
