A great taste experience. I followed recipe completely and added peas and a little saesoned salt but wonderful color and texture all around great meal. Very filling and satisfying. My husband even loved it, thats says everything all in itself. Thank you for sharing.


One of my families favorite comfort foods.


I found this receipe very bland, it also took a very long time for the sauce to thicken, over 30 minutes, on med heat using my new pans. My husband would not eat this again and he would eat anything. It might work if it had more seasonings.


my grandson TYLER is beyond being a pickey eater. he loved it. he said it's the best.


This is so delicious. I added a half cup of frozen peas when I had added the chicken and even added more great taste to it that it already had. All the recipes that I have tried from Very Best Baking .com have been spectacular. Thanks Again Nestle.


chicken a la king reminds me of going shopping with my mother and sister--and out to lunch--what a treat it was to have chicken a la king for lunch in a restaurant! another timeless recipe--- that puts class in classic----


Excellent. My husband and I love this recipe. I have also added 1 large can of tuna in water, drained, or 2 small cans of tuna in water, drained instead of the chicken for a wonderful Tuna Ala King.
